As always Mark thanks for taking us along on your journey. I will be following as you post more of your adventures.
are you going to make it to Invercargill, New Zealand? Burt Munro of "Worlds Fastest Indian" is a hero of mine and was from there. Have another great chapter in your life. Happy trails to you, untill we meet again!

"Seeing other cultures and places makes you see your life differently. "

No kidding, having arrived FROM another culture I used to think it'd be a great idea if every kid could spend a year abroad. Anywhere but here. Just to be able to put themselves into perspective in relation to "the rest of the planet", realize that this country is not all there is (no offense to anyone I hope).

Ride safe, Mark!

I couldn't agree more.

And we don't even have to leave the country. If our urban children could swap places with out rural children in the Summers they both would benefit from viewing how the other lives.

Right!!! ................ and your signature line reads "ban the metric"! while the whole planet went metric, even the U.S. went metric officially....these funky fractions of 2.54 cm still rule!!! WTF !!!
I know, I know....in good fun, I am teasing!

And you are right, even within the country it helps to get out of one's comfort zone.

Amazing what you find when you leave judgement (not good common sense) behind and open the eyes.

Don't tell the proponents of the Imperial system that! Or Burma, Liberia, the USA or.......

The truth is we CAN'T adopt it. It was promoted by the French... the french!

The world according Belstaff

Well fellows about all I know is what I read,I weigh the views both for & against one subject or the other and make decisions for truth when it can be found.

The one truth and epiphany that strikes each & every RTW ADV rider that I have read the past five years (these include, Striking Viking, Lisa & Simon Thomas, Tiffiny Coats, Crashmaster, RTW Doug, Walter Colebatch & Co. plus countless others) have all said the same thing at one time or another, I now believe this to be a universal truth.

People the world over are GOOD, HONEST, DECENT folk who only want to be left to care for their own.----- and that

Governments are what the main cause of the world in such strife

There are certainly "bad" people all over the world as well, but they are not the majority just a small fraction of people. It is why we love to travel and interact with people in the world. Gives us perspectives and appreciation for the similarities of the human race and the cultural differences!!

If God intended for us to use the metric system he would have given us 10 fingers ------- errr, ummm......

Metric System

It makes sense, easy to use and not screw up, everything is a multiple of 10. But whatever someone grew up with, is what makes most sense to them by familiarity. Doesn't mean it's the best it just depends where you're looking from. I still have difficulties fathoming what screw a 15/16 wrench would fit. My father who was a machinist had to learn the British Standard Whitworth system along other systems. Not bad but just something else to throw off your senses. And if you tell an European that temperature is 40 degrees they might think they need their bathing suit. By the way, how many stones do you weigh.. Convenience is probably most important when using these systems, and availability of parts. Not sure you can find many in South America riding a British bike.
Governments aren't designed to be bad, they just evolve
My .002 cents
