Love reading your ride report. It is amazing the people you are meeting, and I truly admire how much of a people person you are. It is very encouraging to hear how open and welcoming everyone is to you. Simple amazing. I'm not sure I have ever experienced hospitality like that, and I am not sure I would be so comfortable with it at first. It makes me wonder why we in the west are so much more closed, also makes me feel like carrying a spare helmet in case I come across a lone hitch hiker!

Second, the women look equally as happy and they are so good looking and fit......think I will need to take a cold shower now.
But can those girls change a tyre in less than 4 minutes.

Holy crap I hate you!




















Just kidding. I have got to say, I am really envious of your travel. This must have been such an excellent trip. and all the cute girls you met along the way. If you ever ride on the west side of the pond you have a place to crash and enjoy some beers. I am not much of a cook

I agree a woman is not a real women unless she can change a tyre in less than 4 minutes, however on 2 occasions my rear tyre came off i never changed it. Actually i have never changed a tyre on a motorbike in my whole life

Beginners luck?

Amazing.

Looking at all your photos I was going to ask if you saw any men on the way, then came the last picture.

We are not alone :)
