Pretty easy on the harley, but I had to pull the Indian rear wheel in a parking lot in russia, and with that big skirted fender, I had to get the frame up about 2 feet before the wheel would clear.

Ive been really lucky tho, in all of my trips overseas, I've never had to fix a tire along the road. (the indian had broken lug nuts in the hub)

dammit. I bet I just jinxed myself!

G'day Doug,
You and others prob know this ... but, even with an Indian guard you don't need to get them terribly high. Just tilt it over and slip the wheel out sideways. If you are alone just use your tent and sleeping bag and drop the bike on 'em. If no soft stuff then use branches ... whatever. Might help somebody although I'm thinking I'm doing a grandma / eggs.

For future information for you, Ambassador Doug and you FF's out there. A U.S. citizen can have two U.S. passports IF there is a need for two.

A 'need' for two includes if you go to Israel and then want to go to another middle eastern country. Or, if you go to Taiwan and want to go to China. Other examples occur.

You simply have to apply for a 2nd passport AND explain why a 2nd passport is required. I use for such travel needs.

OK, back to the beginning of this RR. Popcorn is on!

and yes, israel will stamp the visa on a separate piece of papr so its not in your passport, but they can still see that you left jordan & went somewhere. they aint idiots. If the boat plan cant get arranged, then I'll return by land & not visit israel

I looked into it a little bit.

but not enough to cancel out the adventure!

the only thing that saudis seem to like that is american is green & folds.
and the iranian tourist agency just sorta laughed
'you wanna come here? on a harley???
seems they dont like americans.

I told em I was from the confederacy, & we also had a problem with an unwanted yankee occupation, but they still said no.

But I think that story may work ok in Iraq

Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.

Great trip Doug!

I really like the exhaust on that bike... Is it a one off? What do you call that style muffler?

the mufflers are either called 'cocktail shakers' or 'trumpets'
they were popular in the late 60s.

I'm actually riding around Bulgaria on the shovel right now.

I had to fix alot of heat damaged stuff from the middle east trip, mostly electrics & clutch. It had been sitting for the last couple years, so I brought over the stuff it needed this year & got it back road ready
