Two 24 hour shifts at work later, I just read this entire thread. Your story is incredible and inspiring. Keep up the amazing journey, I look forward to seeing what comes next. If you ever head back up to Fairbanks, you have a place available anytime.



PS - you have solidified the idea of my next bike being a 690 enduro. My wallet thanks you in adcance.

What took 4 days in bali took 4 hours in Sydney. Thanks for the use of the pressure washer!

Bike is getting dropped off at the freight forwarder tomorrow. I'll fly out to NZ on Saturday I think. Bring on NZ!

"NZ lover" here (2011 and 2012): methinks it's a good thing Kiwi Land is so far from everything else, otherwise it would be overrun...

Curious

So, My inbox has gotten a lot of questions about travel, the bike, countries, girls ect over the past few years. I'm pretty sure I've replied to everyone.. or at least I try my hardest to.

I was thinking later on it might make an interesting thread. All the questions and answers over the past few years. I would obviously have to keep the people anonymous..

Is it worth doing? Would you guys read that shit? (not now.. way in the future)

"Girls"?....ummmmm...count me in. I guess you could mix a little bike stuff in there as long as...well...you know....girls.
