The Wizard from Oz.........

Barry and his dad departed Australia, sourced bikes in Ireland and set off to ride across Europe and Africa Thwarted by bureaucracy in Egypt they abandoned the trip. Dad flew back to Oz, Barry hung around to sample some Turkish Delights before being sampled by the dogs

...................Barry wanted to do a bit of trailriding, his rather lardy Tenere didn't and down he went in the gloop. Luckily Paul needed some exercise so he held it upright while Barry pushed








A snapped gear lever and a blown fuse prevented forward motion. We let Barry sort out his own electrics









Blue bike bollocksed Time for some fun on the Little Red Pig








Seems like fun















A quick visit into town the following day resulted in a welded gear lever and a few bits and bobs to tidy up the electrics. Barry had to be out of Turkey in four days so it was time to load up







and press on









If you see him on the road stop for a chat, he'll brighten up your day


Cheers,

2 or 4 legs, if I had that as my view I too would just sit down, chill out and take it all in

Well 2014 saw a few visitors come and go The first of which was Tee Bee of this site, probably more renowned for his Sibirsky Extreme shenanigans with Walter. On this occasion Terry was on his way back to Blighty after dodging the rain in Georgia for the previous couple of weeks. We headed off to the hills around Gombe for a pleasant day out














Higher and higher we went







Along goat trails








It was only at the top of the pass that Tee Bee admitted he wasn't particularly keen on heights Give him a swamp, dodgy river crossing or Siberian tiger to wrestle with and he's happy as a pig in Who knew, huh? Certainly not Hakan who got on the phone to tell all his mates








Fortunately Tee Bee had a vertigo free departure the following day as he set off for Bulgaria.We would next meet at a Romania wedding the following month






Cheers,


Dickyb
