M.a.d.

Man, you are 1 crazy POM. As much as your parents are worrying their guts out over your perceived foolishness, I reckon after you've safely made it home and they've had time to reflect, they're going to be mighty proud of your unbelievable achievement. Then your ol man will repeat those words "Get a job".

Still, you're doing what a lot of us can only dream of and for that you have my respect you loonatic.

Not to dampen your enthusiasm, as I'm sure you had a blast throwing Dot around on those trails, but just keep in the back of your mind how far away is the nearest medical facility, and what level of expertise will be working on you in the event you did have a mishap - I mean, I'm sure others following would hate not only to see you hurt, but to see a great RR come to a premature end would be devestating.

Stay Safe man!

Well, sure, anyone can decide to do Sydney to London on a whim if you have a Honda CT110 and a pair of black high top tennis shoes. Try it on a fully decked out bmw or ktm, or even a klr if you want a real challenge.


Very fresh.

I beg to differ re Iran & Pakistan.

In 68 i drove an old Mercedes from London to Herat in Afghanistan. In Iran i passed an Italian on a Vespa scooter. I ran into him again in Calcutta many months later where he was trying to find a ship to take him to Malaysia. Burma was impassable then. I'm sure he made it as i'm sure you will. Ride safe.

Don't believe everything the US govt Centric Media feeds us; I've often heard travellers report that Iranians are the most hospitable peoples of this small earth.

finally finished it!

Absolutely awesome and funny! I love your wit and humour where are you from on the UK Nate? Cos that doesn't sound like a cockney accent to me?

Stay safe my friend and when you make it to the UK well have a beer or 10!

Cheers for sharing

Theres even a RR from a fellow inmate who talks a lot about that.

Nathan, your ride is absolutely amazing. Keep it up and stay...as safe as you can with the equipment you have. An inspiration to us all. You have my full support. I dont know when you plan on passing through Europe, but Im staying in Belgium for a few more months, so if you need information about parts/language barriers/crazy administrative systems, I would be glad to offer all my help...though that isnt necissarily saying much, its the best I have to offer! Except a drink or five if you ever come by here.

RIDE RIDE RIDE!!!

Pakistan is a bit sticky at present - avoid Quetta and NWFP.
Iran -if you can get a visa- will be a delightful change to the rest of the sub-continent.
The Iranian people are wonderfully hospitable and unlike the perceptions that exist of a "fundementalist nation".
I you cannot get a visa fly in to Turkey or one of the Stans.
Whilst in Pai or around Chiang Mai look up riders on the
http://www.gt-rider.co forum.
Cheers

Knowingly or not Nathan, you've chosen well in naming your motorcycle. DOT was an english motorcyle marque whose name came from the acronym Devoid Of Trouble. Certainly a great omen on such peril filled journey!

Keep on thumpin'

The first to sign this guy up as a columnist or reviewer gets my subscription. At the present time, I find no magazine has anyone close to being this entertaining.
