Slightly Off Topic
This just bums me out ~ I’ve fantasized about doing this race since I was 15 years old (even tried to talk Todd into it in the next few years), not particularly realistically, of course. But it’s always been on my brain. Sad to see it cancelled because of threats.
Hi! Why not take your bike around the whole of Canada and N & S USA its safer and can have similar challenges? (the deserts the mountains etc) I have a friend who is in India at present and is on the return journey to NZ. He completed the NZ via Aus, USA, N & S , and Canada to the UK trip, last year about May and is now on his way home. his bike is a 1956 500 BMW you know the sort with a trailing link front fork and shaft drive! Oh I just thought perhaps you have already done it? :o(( just a thought. Oh his wife rides pillion too. Touch of the “Rhino`s” if you ask me (Rhino saw ass) :o))tee Hee!
