Right Way Round ..' ?? Well, I'm not even sure where this trip will end. You see, I'm the original 'Uneasy Rider' .. not especially blessed with much natural motorcycling talent, nor am I a particularly courageous motorcycle rider. Nevertheless I went 'Right Way Round' New Zealand (3 times) - and then Australia.
Now it's up to South-east Asia and a ride beyond, through Indo-China, over the Himalayas, across to Asia Minor and maybe some of Africa .. finishing in Europe.
Right Way Round - all the way home .. to England on a Honda Transalp, or bust?!

Nita and Issa find adventure in their own backyard, then North America and now the rest of the world. An ongoing story of letting go, doing more with less and living the life we were meant to live. Goodbye office, hello world!
All my life I've heard rumors of strange cultures and wondrous sights. I thought I knew the world from these rumors. Then I started reading books of people's travels and I began to realize that the world I've been told about might not be the world as it actually is. So I set off to find out the truth for myself and find the world is a very different place than the media would have had me believe. Along the way I hope to share what I can of my experience to help others understand what I have seen...
Great photos in black and white of a trip from UK to Europe in 1953.
The author writes:
"I have now been informed that so many modern foreign bikes ridden by smartly dressed English riders would have been quite a sight on Europe's roads. They would ride through France, Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland. We think of old bikes as being unreliable, but my father and his friends were keen riders and engineers and completed the trip without much more than a puncture. The bikes that took part in the trip were:
GAU 856 Brough Superior SS100 with fuel in the loop sidecar.
AHC 650 Triumph Thunderbird. He bought this one on 22nd July 1950 for £219 16 9 and by the day they set off in July 53 - it had done 24,900 miles.
KBY 571 Sunbeam and VMM 871 Sunbeam."

Heike & Filippo going to live the dream - quit job, take motorcycle, leave home, enjoy travelling, meet people, see countries - share it!
I think there are 2 types of people who do this gig, biker nuts who want to go travelling, and travelling nuts who want to go biking. To be fair I'm being harsh, Dave is mostly piss taking and Marc is just being careful. A small blot on what has already been a mental trip, and its only just started.
