Offcourse Mr Colebatch, i was learning fast from one of only a few masters in this ADV world.

I was like his young luke skywalker soaking it all in as much as i could learning from the more wise and "older" Yoda of this sport and type of traveling i had newly found myself in..............

He not only teached me this but also advise how to encourage others and shortly i became a Rep for this mode of travel whilst crossing the formidable rivers, ponds and small puddles from heavy rain whilst on my travels in the back of a truck

I felt once i was pulling of this type of travel methods on the back on trucks Terry would always be some how "watching" over me proud of what i had now become........



But more on this later..............

Next summer Terry you can make amends - we will get some footage of you swimming across a river with a rope around your waist dragging the bike thru the river 10 yards behind ... then we can put to bed all this horrible bongo gossip !

Yes traveling solo does have its distinct advantages, always makes things more of an Adventure and goes a whole lot farther with the locals rather than being in a posse. Being thought of as "crazy" is a good thing Good on you man

This is going to be one wild ride an epic before it's over. I've come up on a couple of saviors or two while in a pinch out in the sticks but never had me a Slovenian princess

I figured those big oilies would have wifi piped in over the whole platform
Must suck a little, at least the funds come quick.

You'll lucky, I've never had a princess.

Still a whole hell of a lot more good people on this Earth than bad and riding a bike one seems to always find the good ones

Many more great experiences to be had...

Ha Ha This one probably went over Wesley DRZ's head but the rest of us got a good laugh out of it.
