It was time well spent reading your trip journal. It was an interesting story and it shows how nice most people are, everywhere.

I'm currently planning a trip through Canada/USA in the mext few years, (much shorter than your 80,000 km) so far the route that I'm mapping does 24,000km and covers only 2 countries... :P

Currently I have no bike but I'm thinking of going KLR650 as it is fairly easy to buy and get parts around here.

Hay Dude,
I've just returned from a ride across the Sahara in a group that I founded called The Riders Against Torture (RATs) which raises money for Amnesty International. I took 7 riders out there and we rode Honda XR400s past Erg Shebbi and almost into Algeria.
I'm back in London now and have been inspired by your round the world lap, and since I've always wanted to ride across Scandinavia I wonder whether you could give me some tips or links to riding in your land please? I'd like to come across in June/July on the Ducati and I'm looking for twisty, pretty roads.
If you're ever in London and need a place to stay or a guide to the local roads feel free to drop me a line. I live with a bunch of friendly bikers in south London.
All the best and wishing you warm roads and free riding,

Yours with respect,

Mungo

Hi, I'm Enrico from Bologna. You're a great!! Saturday I'm gonna see an old DR BIG 750 and today i was looking for some info on the Net.So I've found your site. Today is wednsday 3 april 2003, and I'm sure that saturday 5 april 2003 i will have a new bike inside my garage! My idea to buy the DR BIG was born because i need a cheap bike that allows me to run and run and run and run and run and run for km's and km's and km's.
YOU DID THE WORLD TOUR ON IT,I MUST BUY IT! for this summer I think i will go to spain,because I like the sea,the beach,the palms,the girls ecc..ecc.. Hope that the bike will drive me there!
Un saluto,amico e ancora "sei un grande"!!

Has anyone some information about driving licence stuff in Bolivia. I have got a driving licence for cars, but not for motorbike. In the India nobody cared about that. How is this in Bolivia.

Tank's a lot.
