BikePilot: for your sake I hope you're not my twin! But if so, ya might want to get an MRI.... ;)
Hey Joe, I'd visit Australia just to meet you in person and hear more of your f'in jaw-dropping stories. Didn't know it was so cost-prohibitive to get a bike in and out, though....I'll have to figure something out when I make it a little closer. Course if you can make it to Europe....
Ruin: glad you enjoyed. Welcome to the addiction that is ADV.
Trek: Thanks for the feedback. You're a madman to read the whole thing in 16 hours. Good luck with your own C2C adventure. Stay tuned for more.
