So it has been a while and some things have changed here. Anyways the preparations on the Vespa are pretty much all finished. Besides, last week we bought ourselves a car. The car will be a Lada Niva!

Here are some pictures.

The engine has been revised:



And the vespa was put back together again:







And now I am testing and running it in. I did 750km already and it is running and driving just fine!







And a picture of our magnificent car!



In the meantime we are busy with the visums and other preparations. Only 7 weeks left!

Unfortunately I haven't read it... I absolutely love old stories of people doing round the world trips.

It is somewhere in India. There was a dude who did quite a long trip through the himalaya.

I am not doing everything in the old way and thus I did mount a navigation:



Last week I mounted some racks in order to get my stuff along. I will post pictures soon.

Here some pictures for people who love engine rebuilds. I took the engine apart, replaced all the bearings, replaced the crankshaft, replaced the clutch plates, replaced cilinder and piston etcetera etcetera. I only used original piaggio parts.















The engine is running very well and has a very good fuel consumption, about 1l on 30km. :) It is also very smooth and runs quite easily 100km/hour.

Can a mod adjust the title and replace one car for one Lada?

We made the news this week:

At the start of our trip we will be filmed by Dutch national news.
