    Come on guys. There is no one "right way" to travel, experience it, or write about it. Everybody does it their own way, and I think that´s great. If you don´t enjoy this thread, how about just moving on to the next one that you might enjoy?

    Who said anything about not enjoying it? This is one of the most, uhm, let's call it "eccentric" things I've read on this site. Personally, I'd love it if a year from now he posted back here with pics of his new Amazon wife.

    Greetings all,

    its been a while. May peace be upon you & your households & may you enjoy fine motorcycling escapades.

    One day after a long long time, i tried to log into adv rider but was blocked! someone had hacked my account and posted porn on here (sorry but that wasnt me!) Also I noticed Photobucket have tried to con everyone out of their photos.

    Things have been very busy. Lots of planning, lots of riding. I have been back and forward to France, Georgia, Spain & the Canaries Archipelago many times where I went & lived on the mountains in the peaks of Gran Canaria. Eventually moving the motorcycle on to Fuerteventura.

    In an effort to make my Kawasaki safer to leave somewhere for an extended time I painted it entirely green. Here you see it parked in front of my garage. Very effective results (I think). Off white might be better due to most walls are that color.
