Noah,
Discovered your ride report and slowly catching up -- I'm on page 80 or so, at the beginning of your snowboarding in Georgia phase, and it's a real page clicker! Maybe if you're comm out for a bit that will give me a chance to catch up.

Thanks for sharing and taking us all along on your adventure - the pics, descriptions, and stories are inspiring and great to read through. Cheers and best wishes!

You do know that you can choose the size of the pic you embed from flickr, right?

Just reading through and saw your plan for Aus. You probably have it planned out but if you head south into South Australia then north you will be able to ride the flinders ranges, some of the best adv riding in Aus. Let me know if you want more info.

Noah,

I have been following your ride report for quite awhile, but I don't get to get caught up as much as I would like to. I am wanting to know what the mileage on your odometer is at? You have been on the road for a long time. Keep it going. If you decide to make your way to Atlanta, there is a BBQ waiting for you, along with a group of people to hangout with.

Dean

Read his signature line, if he's updating it.
He's also updating his first post with the main info from time to time.

I just got caught up after reading this whole ride report! It's kind of disorienting getting to the live end of such a long tale, moving from history to the present. Now I'm stuck craving updates with everyone else.

Thank you, Noah, for the great story so far! More videos please! Special request: get a video of your next tire change demonstration in the field.

I am also wondering what he did for oil all the way around? And what about fuel in all those crazy little places thinking they did not have 93 octane or even good fuel with no water in it... Please tell me sir how did you work this???

[QUOTE=RoninMoto;24658446]
I've been staying with Guiltyparty for the last week or so. On Thursday he is taking 2.5 weeks off of work and we are riding into the outback. We will do the Simpson desert then he he will come back to work and I'll continue on. ........ So after Thursday.. expect some silence for a few weeks till I get to Darwin where I'll send some stuff ahead of me.


As mentioned, he's in the middle of Australia, riding through sand dunes. To save weight he is without a computer for a few weeks. Most of where he's going for the next few thousand kilometres only has electricity every few hundred kilometres, I doubt he'll find any internet cafes!

We'll just have to tough it out without updates for a little longer.

To kill time I've stumbled across ride4smiles...another lengthy ride report with all the adventure you could want (admittedly it's on a dirty old BMW though)

Ugh, just read the first few pages - was hoping it would be shite, but he sounds like a pretty interesting bloke. Now I have to read it...
