The HUBB is one of the last bastions of civility in the moto forum universe, let's try to keep it that way.

Funny how our ego get in the way of all of us sometime . Let talk about travel and bike its way more fun , I agree with both of you guys and still sometime I over tip while travelling but I do have to admit that many parents consider kids as money making tools.That doesn't mean they don't love them but between working all day or having a cute kids beg for few hours and making twice what an adult will make in a day... (not just in what we call poor countries)

To fully develop as human beings we must venture beyond conventional education and push the limits of our existence past the suffocating mundane. Identify the impossible--then challenge the boundaries of logic.

Climb a difficult mountain, train for a world-class event or travel under arduous circumstances into the unknown. To taste the music of the wind we might have to sacrifice a romance, skin our knees, suffer hunger or break a bone as the magic of the universe feeds our collective souls.

Disregard the odds as you push the envelope beyond what others consider wise and you will flourish with a rare, profound energy that is only experienced when boldly leaping outside of your comfort zone.

No matter the mishaps along the way, stagger back to your feet and keep on swinging, bruised knuckles and all. A delicious victory awaits those who persevere. Awake and feel the pulse of your destiny as you discover that you are the world’s greatest everything.

Great thread, Glen.

One question, are you born in Norway or in the US?

Hvordan er det med norsken ;-)

Thanks for your question amigo. I was conceived in Norway but born in the US so I guess I was an anchor-baby.
Although they roam the planet like me, my entire family still lives in Tromso.

Now you have me thinking about a trip home...

Hi Glen,
I was most impressed of what you do. I couldn´t believe that someone is seeking the most dangerous spots on earth.

(I wouldn´t say it´s a death wish-but there must be a strong not communicated reason for this).

I dare to critizise what you revealed in your answers to Mark.
First I find it inappropriate (also Marks way of expressing what he thinks.)
But what comes to my mind is, that you want to learn (and not teach) from the people you meet. That´s too, what my intention is in travelling.
But to learn from your own people is denied ???
I mean, that Mark has a point worth thinking of. But what I interpret out of your reaction is, that his opinion is unworthy to you.
You were reacting like your in boxing ring...or on a Judo Math (btw. I´m practicing martial arts for over 30 years)
I don´t know if there ist a story with you both, before Marks posting.
But after I read your reply, I read your books and reports with different eyes.
I don´t want to offend you, but share my thaughts, because I was kind of shocked by your reaction, it´s not what you claim as your way of behavior on your travels.
just my 2 cent, and don´t be angry that I, as a newbie on Hubb dare to share critical thaughts in your thread. You definetly have my respect.
P.S.: I registered here for the main reason, to be able to answer in your thread. (O.K. I will start a RTW trip next year ;-))
