Hey Nathan,

Come back here anytime...we will be anxiously awaiting another update from Dot.

Thank you for taking us along so far, and really hope you will take us along for the remainder of the journey, whenever you decide to do so.

Nate it has been a pleasure from your first post to your latest. Perhaps this is why some writers post their ride report after the journey has been completed. it is disgusting to think that some readers would put their own needs above yours. Keep the wheels rolling, if you do post again, make it a post from London.

If you have the time and the will, I am looking forward to your wonderful pictures and commentary. Ride reports should not be an expectation, they are a gift from the writer. (I sound nothing like this in real life)

Sincerely,

Game over

Just thought of this, he has shown so much of himself, why not show him a little of us.

Nathan,

The purpose of your trip is to get from Sydney to London on a moped absorbing and understanding different cultures along the way. Your posts on ADV rider are just a little gift for all of us here. Enjoy YOUR trip and do whatever YOU want to do. Good luck on completing! If you ever write a book, I'll be first in line. Cheers.

Your experiences are your own and if you agree with them or not the story is very interesting, very 205 to what has been said already.
I hope you enjoy your adventure and hope you will find it in you to ignore these negative influences and continue to post your story.
I for one will be waiting for the future stories, good/bad whatever it is not always easy for folks to share what is so near and dear to their hearts and I hope you will start again.

Best of luck and I wish you safe travels.

Thanks

Nathan,

Thanks for the hours of enjoyment following your trip, I suspect a lot of us will be here waiting for word of how you are doing. Best of luck and take care.

Love the ride report, Nathan.

-It's clear from reading your words typed, that your head is all the clearer thanks to the ride. Appreciate you bringing me along through it all.

-I look forward to reading about the rest of the trip, in whatever increments and installments you feel like sharing.

Love and CT roots (mine was a Trail 70),

What a great trip - especially on this small bike.
You are to blame that I now want to do something like this with my little beast.

Nathan/Dot,

Great report. Here's to selfishly hoping you have a change of heart and resume your report before Turkey as I've immensely enjoyed your writing and insight. Safe travels.

Keep doing what you do best nate. Keep up the journals and vid's. But do it for YOURSELF. Post 'em at the end of your trip. when you can look back with hindsight and perspective and satisfaction of your achievements.

Have fun

Thumb I had the pleasure of meeting with Nathan today.

Here she is. Dot aka Dorothy.



Picked him up from the Guest house. (thats dot in the background)


Our Dorothies



Took him out for Lunch. It was a date you know



He wanted Spicy, so i took him the a spicy joint. (PetefromBerkeley would remember this)






After swapping some lies (thats Mr.Cob for this phrase) I brought him back to his adobe and thats when it happened......

We swapped our Bikes







This was my first time riding a semi-automatic, No clutch with gears Bike. High end technology for someone who is still riding half a century old technology.












Nathan is a cool guy and he's doing fine.

He is enjoying his stay here and loves and hate a lot of things just like us.
We are going shopping tomorrow to buy something lovely
