Nick's normally at the HU meeting at Ripley in July.
Quote from MCN about his Timbuctou journey earlier this year, "I will lead 23 riders through... the capital of Mauritania, today on our way to Timbuktu. The Ministry of Internal Affaires knows about our being here and arrangements have been made for our continued safe passage. 100,000 soldiers have been positioned en route."
Nice of the Mauri government to arrange 100,000 troops to protect Nick.
I was surprised on arriving solo and unsupported in Noackchott in January to find my chosen residence had been invaded by 28 British bikers and associated support vehicles. Made me laugh to see the scooter going to Timbuctou, but apparently he made it.

and enlarges the world in which you live,"
