hi motoreiter

Yes the message was from Jon. I think he missed Xdream by a day or so?

He wanted to let you know that he is currently planning his annual desert trek in August, he will be driving 1500 km west from Brisbane then contining on into the Simpson, for lots of sand, space and probably mud.

Hi Xdream and Steve

Leigh and I will be in Austria on the 11th 12th and 13th May.

If your free to meet up one night for a Beer or two that would be great.

let us know which area of Austria you in and which Bar you drink in and we will make our way there.

Dazzer and Leigh

I know I'm late on this... But awesome job and excellent RR. I can't believe you had the balls to ride across the Vitna River Bridge! Right on!

Very few folks can actually write, post pictures, and videos in such a way as to make you feel as if you were on the trip with them! Awesome report, and great adventure!

XDream, I finally got the chance to read through your ride report, and thoroughly enjoyed the story! You bring Russia and the riding in Siberia and the Far East to life! Look forward to seeing your next adventure! Thanks!!!

Just stumbled onto this one from a google search,

Truly an excellent adventure,

Thank you for taking the time and effort to post it,

Edit: Oh, and I almost forgot, please convey a special thanks to your wife for letting you go and for supporting
your adventurous lifestyle. My wife is very much the same way, they are few and far between.
She deserves a lot of credit too.
