Hungarians replace stolen motorbike

A Japanese man who had his bike stolen during his dream journey from Tokyo to South Africa has had a replacement bought for him in Budapest.

Kunio Aoki's bike and camping gear were taken just two days after he arrived in the Hungarian capital. But fellow bikers who felt sorry for him gave him a bike and equipment so he could continue his epic trip.

And to repay their kindness, the 38-year-old says he will go back to Hungary to sell the bike and give the proceeds to charity.

But before that, Aoki has to make it to South Africa, which he hopes to do by the end of this year.
