Happy b-day Ted. Yer an inspiration.
Yup, a very inspiring guy. I thoroughly enjoyed his cameo in Long Way Round where he met up with Ewen and Charley in Mongolia.
He's a true trailblazer whose books, full of storied adventures, put a lot of guys (and gals) on lengthy road trips to far-off lands on bikes...

When I finished high school, I wanted to take all my graduation money and buy myself a motorcycle. But my mom said no. See, she had a brother who died in a horrible motorcycle accident when he was 18. And I could just have his motorcycle.
