Samuel Felice Rodriguez and Ambroise Prince have just completed their mission to ride two Peugeot Django 125cc scooters the 7,500 miles from Paris to Hô-Chi-Minh City in Vietnam.
Inspired by two French soldiers, Serge Gracium and Michel Vaslinwho completed the journey the opposite way around on a pair of Peugeot S57 scooters in 1956, the duo decided to do their own ‘Django Adventure 2016’ on the modern equivalent. The Peugeot Django.
The pair travelled through 14 countries and 50 cities as they rode towards Vietnam. Arriving in Hô-Chi-Minh City – just in time for the Vietnam International Motor Show – on October 26th, bang on schedule. Unsurprisingly, they were given a heroes’ welcome by Peugeot Scooters – as their arrival coincided with the brand’s official launch in Vietnam.
Elated at their arrival, they gave thanks to all who had supported them during the trip: “We would like to tell you billions of times, thank you! It is thanks to you that we arrived here. It is thanks to your messages and to your support. Thanks to you all!”
They also praised their Django scooters for carrying them safely throughout; neither machine suffered any mechanical problems throughout the entire 12,000 km: “We drove on roads of all kinds, in weather conditions ranging from smothering heat to steady rain. Our faithful two-wheelers have never left us! We were impressed by their capacity in any environment, urban and off the beaten track.”
