The project

PANIGALE CHALLENGE

 

Panigale Challenge is about making money for Riders for Health. To make this more exciting and to involve more people I'll do the Eurodiagonal trip on the most exciting bike at the moment, the Ducati 1199 Panigale. That's right, you’ll follow the first Panigale to make it to the North Cape from the south of Europe! After the trip, the bike will be sold and the money goes to Riders for Health. To make this adventure happen I need your help! I started a Crowd Funding campaign to raise the money needed to buy the bike and reach the North Cape. Engine starts on 1st of June 2014 from Sagres, Portugal. Yes you can make an impact!

RIDERS FOR HEALTH

 

The guys at Riders for Health are doing a great job to make healthcare more accessible in Africa using motorcycles. They are on the field, and their job makes a huge difference for local populations!

They currently manage 1’400 vehicles across seven countries and their fleet travels around 1’400’000km every month! All together we can help them reach more people and be more efficient on the field! Did you know a mobilised health worker can reach 6 times more people!   Visit Riders.org   Riders_impact

 

 

 

THE EURODIAGONAL

 

From Sagres – Portugal, the most south-western continental point of Europe to Nordkapp – Norway, the most northern continental point of Europe. It’s only 5’500km far, but as I prefer twisty road, let’s make it 8’000km! Can you imagine the Panigale in the amazing landscapes of Spain and France on twisty roads of the Pyrenees. Or a Panigale in the middle of lowlands in northern Sweden! The perfect picture! I’ll make you live this trip from your sofa with daily pics and daily stories directly on your smartphone with the Panigale Challenge mobile app! 076

 

 

YOU CAN MAKE AN IMPACT

You are the key here, I can’t afford purchasing a Ducati Panigale and selling the bike for Riders for Health. That’s why I need the help of the community. By supporting the project with small or big pledges, you can make it happen! You can bring this Panigale to the North Cape and the most important of all you can make money for Riders for Health and they’ll make an impact in Africa! Spread the word!

 

DUCATI 1199 PANIGALE

Because the 1199 Panigale is the most exciting bike on earth at the moment, because it’s gorgeous and it will look perfect on pictures across Europe. Why don’t get a Multistrada instead? Well, where is the challenge of doing this on a Multi? It would be too easy. No pain no gain! The Panigale is the ultimate kick ass bike and it will be perfect for this!

WHO IS BEHIND THIS?

Hey I’m Séb aka Il Bastardo, 35 years old living in Brussels Belgium. Co-founder and photographer at TBS since 2009, co-editor of the Stay True magazine and member of the DOC Belgium – Ducati Sud Belgio. I like Ducati’s (you bet!) and I have three vices, I’m a riderlcoholic, a photolcoholic and a travelcoholic. Doing all this at the same time makes me really high. Oh and I drink too much coffee but I’m working on this ;-). I have a 2010 Ducati Hypermotard as a daily ride, I usually do 25’000 – 30’000km per year, I have no car so I don’t really have the choice ;-). I’ve been riding to Turkey and Georgia last year and made various other trips in Europe.

Why fund it?

CROWD FUNDING, WHY SUPPORT?

Obviously the first reason is to make money for Riders for Health. But it's not only about raising money for a NGO, it's also about making an amazing adventure possible and I'll make you live this adventure from the inside.

If you like travels, you have here a unique opportunity to follow the crossing of Europe from part to part from your living room with great pictures and stories. Did I said there is a mobile app Panigale Challenge?, so you can follow the whole adventure from your smart phone?!. And last but not least, you'll have kudos and nice rewards.

 

Just check the rewards list, I'm pretty sure you'll like some of them.

 

WHAT IF THE PROJECT IS NOT FULLY FUNDED

 

Well that would be sad, but thanks to KissKissBankBank, you’ll get 100% of your money back and that’s it, end of the story. No Panigale to the North Cape, no money for Riders for Health, no daily pic in your mailbox.
