I'll just add this, not really hack related, but more to the above post. The Brit bikes are all over the MiddleEast (I wonder why?) buried where you wouldn't believe. I would have liked to have found these guys http://www.colston.org/cairobikes.html, but never had the time and I got over my BSA thing. I don't know if cruising around Cairo right now is quite the best thing to be doing for a Westerner at the moment.

Talk about the original adventure bikes! Grab what you can and go see the world!

Ps. I was joking around with that "I wonder why" remark. General Allenby left a lasting impression, didn't he. The British Empire extended far and wide, more than I think most people realise, but that is a discussion for another forum...
