Those guys all give a whole new definition to "adventurer." Amazing.

We're all pussies.

We are not worthy , those guy's are absolute legends, back in the days when boats were made of wood and men made of steel (well, boats were actually made of steel then, must have been about the time Titainum was invented .......................

Outstanding! I laugh now because I'm the worst when it comes to: I need this bike for this and that bike for that!

I'm the guy who buys a new and different bike every year just for one specific need. These guys did everything on one bike and liked it!

Thanks for posting those pal. We need to hook up again soon.

Man, those are some great pictures and some very brave and good riders, not to mention extemely fun loving.

Thanks for posting the pics!!

We are very lucky they brought someone along with a camera.
I don't think cameras were quite as sophisticated back then either.
