The Asinine Story

Two chickens take on an epic trip, with miniature proportions.


In South Africa, a lot of people believe that if you don’t own the biggest, most expensive adventure motorcycle with all the faster-making goodies… you are not really an adventurer.

This is where the idea popped up to take the smallest bikes we could find and do a mini-adventure with humungous amounts of fun.


Skinny and Chikita will be taking two 70cc Puzey Thumpa bikes (seat height is only 55cm; they only weigh 54kg; and top speed is 60km/h), and ride them from Cape Town to Johannesburg.  A planned trip of 1850km.

We will visit some SA landmarks, ride a pass or two, wild camp, try and get a lap around Phakisa, sleep in a jail, and in the process do all the things that only true adventure bikers do.

Follow our adventure on social media, meet us along the way, cheer us on – any support (mostly those in liquid form) will be welcome. 


BE BRAVE!  BE STUPID!  Nobody can tell the difference…


Skinny & Chikita
