Sometimes one comes across a ride report that stirs faintly the embers of envy, a desire to be out on the road with the author. Not this one. I thank all the gods I have a job, a wife, ties to the community and obligations that do not permit me to undertake under any circumstances a journey like this one. I am cold just reading it. Amazing stuff. Great pictures. A reminder that anything is possible.

Let's see if I have this right. You are riding an old, underpowered, untested two stroke motorcycle with a fully packed sidecar in the middle of winter through bleak countryside and chaotic cities.

Your transmission is dodgy, your rear brakes don't work, your chain is wearing out quickly from the great weight (the bikes, though your own weight doesn't seem to be getting any less), your navigation system is misleading, and sometimes you can't see.

You are on a limited budget without sufficient time. You are relying upon the kindness of your friends and you have to stay up late with those friends eating and drinking copiously.

What a great adventure. Unlike my fine Florida friend, I DO envy you.

Nearly point blank

well; the MZ was largely untested with the sidecar, while the Jawa had been in Storage for 3 Years; and the chain wore out more through stupidity than the weight, I assume - I'll write about it tomorrow, today my older girl turned 16 and the festivities are just over now.

she asked when she can start to learn to ride; unfortunately in Turkey it's seventeen even for Mopeds

thanks for your comment

Sweet Sixteen

Happy Birthday to your Sweet Sixteen daughter.

And congratulations to you for having a daughter who wants to ride. She must have learned a sense of adventure from you. If she rides, you will always have something meaningful to talk about.

The father/daughter ride reports on ADVrider never fail to give me a warm feeling.
