A group of Nigerian entrepreneurs are aiming to change perceptions about their country with an epic motorcycle journey.

Members of the Eagle Motorcycle Club are teaming up to cover 17 nations across North and West Africa, Europe and North America in the Out of Nigeria Round The World Motorcycle Adventure, Business Day reports.

The close knit group of friends are avid motorcyclists and are teaming up with UK adventure film company Tanglewood Productions to film their epic adventure.

Planning is well underway and once the race starts it will be streamed on the internet with organisers estimating around 40 to 50 million people will tune in.

The Eagle Motorcycle Club wants to give people around the world a different view of Nigeria following the abduction of 276 girls from a boarding school in Chibok by Boko Haram.

Members want to put the country in a more positive light and move away from the terrible incidents the nation has gone through of late.
