Often a bad move: "Maybe I'll just lift a cheek and vent this off a little"....


Addendum to Common Concern #12

If you suffer from travel constipation use Sennekot carefully.


There is a nice new pair of Ex Officio underwear that were unceremoniously thrown into the bushes in Northern Ontario. Couldn't make it to town and the emergency TP roll had only a couple of sheets remaining.

Let us know when an inmate asks for the size and location.

Highly, highly recommended travel clothing/gear company

You will celebrate the day you take ZERO cotton articles of clothing on a trip of any kind.

Your little foil packets of Woolite and your little round rubber sink drain blocker and the towels from your hotel room are a powerful combination in combo with "tech fabric" clothing.

Many of you have been doing what Helge shows in the below video, but, hey, Helge gets points because he made a video out of it before you did

When the conversation shifts to skin care products and hair care, I am sure this thread will be a gold mine of information.


Zen thought of the day...I don't carry a gun, but my gear has holes in it.

Avoid learning the "Trice Rinse and the Helge Fold".
Go commando.
Makes the holes in the gear more entertaining to motorists.

Helge's take on dealing with police corruption:



Mexico, Honduras, Zambia - it'a a topic for moto travelers all over

See Helge's YouTube page for more excellent "Tips from the Road"

Awwww, jealousy in all its forms. So cute!

I'm with you though on being jealous - I too wish I could tour the world, be sponsored, and get paid for it!

Laugh

Trice, don't get me wrong, I actually admire the guy and hope to read his self-illustrated, for the most part, book he authored about his travels.
That self portrait shot of his on the Chinese border in the winter snow is still, to me, one of the most best motorcycle related photos of all time.
However, I would personally like to watch a video of him and the crew dealing with the Tampico transitos. They were dealing with two cops in English and who had no back up support that can really ruin your day and stay.
That thratening to call the embassy line wont even raise an eyebrow with many cops here.
They can always call your bluff and hand you a cel phone.

I'm with you again - I wouldn't call his mordida video a masterpiece or the most educational bit on the subject.

But in general, he's got me cornered on the chessboard in terms of what he gets to with a motorcycle and his days. He's touring the world and making travel related videos, and I'm sitting here with this thread! (Hey, so are all you guys come to think of it! )

I ran into him once in San Miguel de Allende quite by accident.

He was on his way to Panama on the second leg of his Americas tour.

Jealous!

He came over and sat down next to me during dinner at a photoshoot that BMW did in the Ocala Nat. Forest many years ago. I had been taking my time and taking photos while several others were playing boy racer and his comment to me was "I like your attitude!"

Nice guy. Bright and perceptive.

EIther in his book or he told me in person why he quit wandering the planet after 10 years and I remember that lesson and took it to heart.
