Hey Noah, those long poles those guys were using in Belgium (oops)…. did they have reels? Or were they like a modern cane pole? They seemed a bit over-the-top in the photo, but there's probably something I'm not getting.

And the blacksmith in Scotland… son, you need to revisit that land.

Noah,

I am another just following along. I love your RR and the pictures are awesome. Keep showing the fish. I would love to fly fish around the world.

Just FYI, the reason that the Germans did not bomb the harbor was because the Luftwaffe was basically destroyed by that time. This was summer of 1944. The Allied Air Force had been bombing the Germans for 3 years. They had systematically destroyed the war making infrastructure of Germany and reduced the Luftwaffe to a shell of it's former might. The Germans lost 10 Million people because of that madman and his hinchmen.

All the best.

The only other bike out there that would have worked for me was the Yamaha Tenere 660.. but we cant get that in North America.
You can get a Tenere in Mexico still part of NA. I'd go DR650 more reliable, lighter and very simple, but to each his own, carry, fuel pumps and injectors.
