Charlie and bloody Ewan
 
Do you think they will do another trip together? The Americas maybe!! Sorry, that should read Ewan and bloody Charlie.

New watercooled GS coming, so I wouldn't rule anything out.

Linzi 13 Nov 2012 09:54

Hm?
 
Charlie and who? Lindsay.

I hope so...

There will new influx of riders buying loads of adventure gear and accessories brand new with their "more money than sense" attitudes.

Then 12 months later they realise they aren't using any of it and flog it all on eBay, nearly new, for a fraction of the price..

Then all us skint travellers can buy it up cheap and actually use it..

I might give the Touratech Laser-etched titanium BMW special edition soap dish a miss though.

:innocent:

Do Touratech do titanium locking wheel nuts for adventurers to the Liverpool area?

They should do.... But they'd probably get pinched. ;)

Harsh, very harsh :D

I was in an airport duty-free the other day and Ewan's "Adventure" aftershave was nowhere to be found. I asked the assistant who said "Discontinued". Maybe she meant "Sold Out" cos Ted bought a container-full. :confused1: Now I have to suffer on with my Brut69.

That's right.. I bought them all.

I had to sell all my bikes to fit all the boxes in my garage.

I dare not go anywhere without the warm smooth husky smell of ADVENTURE Aftershave. No man should attempt a trip without a bottle of this stuff. Or they will no doubt fail.

I might be able to sell one of two bottles to wanna-bee adventurers. £100 a bottle. Stamped "TT" for Touring Ted.

Nice thought TT I like your style. Thing is I also enjoy watching their travel shows. Ok it does'nt represent the reality that most of us would experience, but I find them entertaining and a change from the usual cak,bearing in mind they have got to sell this to mainstream audiences. Oh dear I think it's time I hit the road again.....

I have to admit, it was that first series that inspired me to do my first big trip way back in 2003. I was 22 and saw an interview with EMG on a talk show talking about the plan and I thought "f**K that.. If he can do it, so can I"...

So, as much as I HATE to admit it, they got me started on all this... If I would of done it anyway, who knows... Probably !! But maybe much later in life.

I think many of us saw LWR and it was our first step on the ladder of becoming and adventure motorcyclist.

Got a great kick of putting an Irish flag sticker under one of their LWD stickers on the back of a signpost in Namibia.

I think it's good that the general public get a sense of what all this travel malarky is about. It makes the rest of us look like hero's :-)

Ted Simons Jupitor Travels was the book that first inspired me back in 1994. It still does!!

Keith1954 13 Nov 2012 18:29

Hmmm? Some interesting, some might say fascinating, comments here into what the original inspiration was for some of us to go overland travelling. Could be a worthy topic for a brand new thread perhaps? .. or has this been done already?

I could do with a great read; nothing better than a good yarn or two. And Christmas is only 41 Days, 5 Hours and 31 Minutes away!
