Long-distance scooter rides are nothing new, people have been pushing the boundaries on small capacity scooters since the 1950s. This particular 12,000km journey was inspired by an epic early trip on the original Peugeot S57 scooters used as inspiration for the modern Peugeot Django.
Friends and film-makers Samuel Felice Rodriguez and Ambroise Prince are riding two 125cc Django scooters from Paris, to Hô-Chi-Minh City in Vietnam, in honour of a ride made 60 years ago. They were inspired to make the journey ‘Django Adventure 2016’ after discovering two French soldiers, Serge Gracium and Michel Vaslin, rode Peugeot S57 scooters between Saïgon (now Hô-Chi-Minh City) and Paris in 1956.
The two travellers are just a few days away from completing the 12,000 km ride on their Peugeot Django scooters. Samuel and Ambroise left Paris on August 29th, 2016 and have so far successfully crossed France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, India and Myanmar.
They’re currently making their way across Thailand, and are planning to arrive in Hô-Chi-Minh City before the end of November 2016.
