Motorcycle Travellers Tales content
Around the world. "I'm just trying to inspire people to do a dream trip. Most people say they can't do it. No time, no money, whatever, but I believe it comes down to desire. I had to quit a good business, give all my customers away to my competition, as sell some 'toys' to do this trip. I had the desire!"
"We have filmed one of these expeditions to Cape York, Far North Queensland, and have produced a DVD of this trip. We also have a gallery of photos and video clips from some of our other adventures."
Neil's two month trip in India on Enfields.

During the years 2001 & 2002, Drew did Bloke on the Bike I & II, trips across Australia while "worked as a motorcycle based journalist, travelling around Australia for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, filing radio, TV and on-line stories." Lots of photos and info.
"Having trekked to Everest Base Camp, rafted down the Sun-Kosi River in Nepal, travelled extensively through the Australian deserts, rode BMW motorbikes through Asia, and travelled overland from Hong Kong to Pakistan through China we were after another adventure.
In 1998/1999 myself, Geoff Kingsmill, a computer consultant from Alice Springs Australia, my wife Kienny and nine year old daughter Su-lin shipped our Toyota Landcruiser to South Africa and then drove to London. The lure of Africa was just too much so in 2000 we spent two months travelling through the Sahara Desert in Tunisia and Libya.
Not being content, we hit the road again in 2004 and drove through Russia, Mongolia and Scandinavia to Europe, starting in Vladivostok on the sea of Japan and finishing in London, some 25,000km to the west."
Very good, plenty of info on Africa (of special interest is the Sudan - Ethiopia - Egypt bits); Russian and Mongolia. Please find the updated information on using a GPS in Russia and Mongolia.
