War zone road trip

Here is a brilliant clip from my mate’s crazy motorcycle journey – riding through a war zone in Afghanistan. A ride done for the very best of motives: “for the hell of it”.
Warning – if you don’t like swearing, don’t watch this clip. (If you don’t approve of swearing then you probably wouldn’t want to go on any half-decent expedition, for they are full of mishaps, misery and tantrums!)
