How cool is this?!


(Not being able to post inline pics really is a pain sometime!!!!)

...and all in aid of a great cause. The robot robot will be travelling the 'wrong way round' (facing the wrong way, get it? ) with Graham Merrick on a 5 day fund raising ride from John O'Groats to Cape Cornwall this August. Graham is aiming to raise £5000 for Enduro Africa.

Find out what Graham Merrick is up to to raise funds for the charity Enduro Africa - it involves a lot of riding, a BMW R1200GSA and a robot (that's not a typo, yes, a ROBOT!):
Wrong way round....motorcycle charity fund raising event

Riders are invited to join them (he will be travelling with his friend Ian Underwood aka COGS) on various stages of the trip....find out more on Grahams website, where you can also donate towards the cause.

A few comments I picked up from ADVRider.com :rofl:

-a "funny" twist on Long Way Round.
-another beemer with a ton of shiny crap strapped to it.
The robot needs a laser gun or at least a shot gun and uzzi. It should say "**** you, asshole" to everyone.
Looks heavy, that cant be good for the final drive,
He shoulda used a blow up doll....they always look so "Surprised".
Does the robot transform into a spare final drive and security key radio? If so, there may be a market for selling 'em.
Great idea!
Put a metal cock on it, have it jack off and spray warm salty yogurt on tailgaters.
:eek:

A bit more info about the robot, I'll find out more when I get a chance....
It's made mainly of car parts from the scrappies, dash boards, consol's, door handle plates, air boxes etc etc. Anything plastic to keep the weight down. It was built by a friend of Grahams, Nick Fielding of Cyberstein Robots, you might have seen one of their previous creations, Titan.
