“Roots.” is the second team-up for Web 55mph between photographer Rowland Kirishima and motorcycle journalist Keisuke Kawanishi following their round-trip journey between Portugal and Morocco on the Ténéré 700 published in 2019, entitled “This is Africa!” Kirishima and Kawanishi were joined by two other riders for this trip and all of them shared a mutual longing for the freedom taken away by the COVID-19 pandemic. This grand tour from Tokyo to Kochi, Shikoku, and back last November was to rediscover the draws of motorcycling and the joys of the journey.
