Enjoy every moment.
Count me in Paul, if you come through Western Australia!

I lurk in these forums a lot, but I had to chime in on this one. Enjoy your trip, and understand that there are MANY envious followers. You are doing something that I can only dream of, and on my dream bike as well! Crazy respect for you!

You may be right. But keep in mind Triumph started production in Thailand in 2002. I know because I was at the Hinckley factory (UK) and they told me so.

But I don't think early Bonnevilles were made in Thailand. Then it was S3's and other Triples ... and early on only the chassis, swing arms and various parts were Thai made. They've expanded the Thai role a lot since then.

Engines were all put together in the UK when I was there. AFAIK, the Bonnie/Scramblers engines are now made in Thailand. In '03 the plan was to bring more and more manufacturing to Thailand so seems a logical move. Triumph were thrilled with the Thai quality. Engine parts were all Japanese made ... but now ? Might be made in Thailand too? All this and NO lay offs at Hinckley. (or so I was told back then)

When in Vancouver....

When do you think you might be in Vancouver? If I am home you are free to crash here in downtown Vancouver.

PM me if interested.

Cheers,
Dan

Paul stopped for a night at my place here in Edmonds, WA before heading up to Vancouver. Great guy and a great trip. I believe he should be getting to South Korea tomorrow and then on to Russia.

He's updating his facebook page called "ellio" and a tumblr account called "ellioadventures".

Is he going to be updating this RR do you know, or is he concentrating on the other things (which I personally won't be following)?
