I fit that category. But, an air compressor belt got the tips of two of them rather than drill pipe or tongs. ;-). My lips are sealed on service hands

There is another way around getting a vehicle (motorbike) in England, which is to buy one in somewhere like Poland (just as an example) then keep the plates on it & just ride it.Another way would be to bypass England & all it's petty laws & buy something in Europe & again, just ride it.US insurance can sometimes cover foreign riding.

There's an inmate in Ireland who's got something set up for Americans to buy bikes over there and get them registered to his address and IIRC he also has a barn or something so the bikes can be parked and used for more rides.

Another ripping yarn in the great British tradition! Many thanks for making the effort and brightening up a cold December evening.

Glad to hear you got some social time over there. Friends that have worked the rigs tell me it's often more like this:



Substitute "oil platform" for "oil tanker."

Laugh Slovakian princess!

I think she is the one - 3 photos in - 3 diffrent locations; 3 diffrent dresses - So you meet her atleast thrice on a fast rolling trip where you are working / riding 12 hours a day . I am kinda sure she is the Special one.





Awesome RR. Godspeed bro!!!

Hey Wesley,
Finally caught up on ADVRider over Christmas. It's been fun reading your report. It helped to motivate me to start writing up my on report. I can't believe we never bumped into each other. Well, probably next year.
Cheers,
Boarder

Yes i am confused also just reading the above but sure it will all work out
Makes perfect sense to me

Yes, I found that a few days ago. Great read as well. So many different ways of doing these trips and most of us seem to have fun.
