I am no expert on this, but I'll bet they think you are handsome, relatively well off, and are a lot of fun by virtue of your adventure riding trip. Just sayin.................

Years back, I was kinda a BMW Rally Rat making as many rallies as could on my days off from offshore rigs and platforms. Saw many bikes with so much stuff piled on , there was bearly enough room to sit. I was guilty of that also when first started traveling/ camping about the US. The more years and more miles , the less I carried. I quit camping at 62 years old and the load really got light then.
Thanks Wes, just love your updates as you get them to us. Keep em coming.

Is it me or did English become your second language all of a sudden?

Wonderful update, Wesley! Don't worry about the gap between installments. This story is too good to miss! I'm guessing that somewhere in the next chapter is when the story goes into top gear! Of course these "lower gears" have been awesome too!

Awsome keep it coming

Love your style, I just ruined my shirt when I saw the German tanks with their hi-tech targeting systems vs your lob the cannon ball and see where it lands, my kind of traveling. I think the flyingdutchman realised this himself he is traveling rtw on his big GS and then did a stint in Vietnam Cambodia and Laos on a 200CC and realised that it was way more fun and you will be able to go places where the big bikes cant. Awsome keep it coming going to miss it when it is over Next year I will be heading off to Suid Afrika again. My dream is a RTW saving for that at the moment doing it on a 650 Dakar. Compass a map and a good sense of direction has always been the best navigation no need for fancy GPS. Just makes you a target

i read 37 pages in 3 days, i was amazed, how you interact with people + language barrier, i used to read GSpot corner, daydreaming about big GS, after reading your RR, the essence is not the bikes but the adventure it self, finding new friends, staying at stranger house etc. i laugh till i fart reading "pooratech" fan!!" "German tanks with their hi-tech targeting systems vs your lob the cannon ball and see where it lands" the biggest bikes i own is kawi KLX250 cost me $4300 (used) in comparison new GS LC $50.000 (new) in my country. i'm looking forward for your RR about meeting the bad guys..

Love it matey.!!
I had to laugh when I saw the guns and to my amazement the women. Just the sort of thing I've posted in the past.

Looks like a trip of a life time. Did you mod this drz much. I have a drz too.

I've driven from Cambridge to the gambia in a car but am yet to get out of the UK on the bike.

I booked an enduro holiday in my camper towing the drz around Wales for a week before I had even passed my test. I passed 2 weeks before the planned trip.

Looking to head off solo on drz soon

The similarities keep coming haha.
