Morocco bound

Have you thought about riding into Western Sahara? Dakhla looks like it's got a nice beach. I might be heading that way myself in the next two months

Amazing RR, amazing shots. The Alps are awesome! I will return there definitely, this time with my girlfriend.

Good luck in Morocco and send a msg if you need some info, been there for 4 years (albeit without a motorcycle).

I saw one of those 8 cylinder Moto Guzzis at the motorcycle museum in Solvang, CA. It was my favorite bike in the whole place. I guess it made an impact on you too...

I had to catch up all the way from england. Im not sure I would have ever left France, and you know what im talking about

Amazing pics through the Alps- looks surreal. I cant wait for the portions on Africa- just be careful! Truck drivers down there are supposedly nuts..

Wonderful trip Noah. You've really captured some excellent images along the way too. Your life will never be the same after this.

Great pics Noah, Italy looks an awesome place to ride with that amount of gravel open to bikes(unlike the UK), like the history with the WWII stuff, enjoy morroco, only been once but not on a bike

I don't think any response of mine is worthy, so I'll just say thanks for sharing this amazing journey with us!

What camera are you using if you don't mind me asking...some of these photos are stellar!

Think he said Sony NEX (5?).

It's more knowing how to use it then the camera itself, altho it seems like the aperture
could be a bit higher on some of the landscape pics.

Well then the pics are really great, considering the full auto.

What is that kickstand jobby you are using? Looks like a great alternative to using a center stand for changing flats.
