We're off! Big thanks to you all!
So the day is nearly upon us. Tomorrow Dave and I head south with passports full of visas and bikes overloaded with stuff we probably don't need, and on Sunday morning we'll be off through the tunnel heading for Italy, the Balkans, Greece, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, the stans, Russia, Mongolia, Korea, Canada and the Pan American.
A huge thank you to the HUBB and especially all in the Northern Asia and Yamaha Tech boards. Without all your help I really don't think this trip would be happening.
So thank you all and I hope to meet some of you on the road someday!
With luck, you'll be able to see what we get up to at rideroundtheworld.com and Dave's blog here on the HUBB somewhere.
Thanks again, and see ya!
