The Dumb Way Round, Worldtour on 70 year old bikes

We're planning a round the world trip on 1937 Nimbus bikes with sidecars, the so called Dumb Way Round. ETD is April 2009. Please check out our website at :-)

In 2006 we went from Norway to Singapore on the same bikes, to go straight to the story and pictures from this trip the link is

We're interested in contacts along the route, so please feel free to contact us.

Best regards,

This oughta be good.

In-line four cylinder.

Is it one wheel drive or two?(Does the sidecar wheel have a transfer case like the Ural)?

What happens when (sorry, if) you break down and need parts? Will you have to wait until your shop re-creates the part?

Have fun!!

I'll be following your next voyage with interest, pity PB won't be along for the ride.

super cool

This trip sounds great, the website says long pitstop in VT. Sounds like a good reason for a gathering?
