Adventure Scooter Sighting in DC

I was innocently exiting a burger joint in DC today and I spotted some kinda weirdo Honda scooter that is not locally available. Then, I noticed that it had PANNIERS and then I noticed UK TAGS. I hopped on my GS and chased after the guy and asked him if he was on a long trip. Indeed he was; on a 125cc scoot, I think headed on a trip around the US. He told me that he had previously done a round the world trip on a 50cc Honda. He told me his name, but I didn't quite get it. Anyone know who this Brit is?

Pretty cool stuff.

Did he think you were going to mug him?
