in the movie they gave new meaning to driving it into the ground.
Cool RR. Doug, what kind of camera are you using? Awesome pictures! Hope to see you at Barbers Vintage Fest? Will the HD "Dirtster" be on display at Barbers's Museum?
A friend of mine is all into old British bike's and has workplace full of Norton's & stuff.
I'll ask him if he has a '39 Norton 500 stuck on the shelf somewhere...
You'll have to come to Belgium for it, but you know the way.
Did I miss the Road of Bones pics?
What? That's not Rick James? Looks kinda Super Freaky to me...
I'll ask a few friends of my grandpa, but don't expect quick results, this is not a rusty M72, which can be had easily.
I've sold both of mine (I had a Model 18 500 and a twin port Model 20) but I've still got some bits floating around, so keep me in mind and PM me with what you need (it's mainly small parts and NOS bits like cylinder sleaves, cables, etc.) if you find a bike. They're out there. Would make an excellent touring machine.
I saw the movie, I wonder if Che would beg to differ?!
As soon as I saw this I thought of you Doug :jose
That will be quite a long trip. I assume you have ridden one of those old 500's?
That would be one hell of a trip. May I join you? Please, please, please! haha
I'll ask a couple people I know who are really into the old European bikes tomorrow and PM you. Couple Brits did the same thing in 2009, http://lancashire.greatbritishlife....man-following-che-guevaras-tyre-tracks-34631/ .
He nicknamed the motorcycle "El Poderoso II" or "The Powerful one". I think you'll need to rename it "The Powerful one, the second" haha
Hi Doug, I started reading this thread yesterday, I am up to page 72 Will read some every night. A mate called Jock (OldOzy) was staying with me the other night and mentioned you and when I hadn't heard of you he sent me this to read. I am loving it
Here is a book of a writer who has done a similar trip.
Book is the RR for the same trp of CHE. The writer meets some of the people who met Che.
Okay he does it on a old BMW so thats the only week point of the book
The final part with Che's friend with a bottle of Rum is great to finish the book as well.
Have a good one...
He rode a hardtail chopper around the world, a little trip like this should be nothin!
I know that. There is a big difference between that bike and a flat head 500 twin from that era.Have you ridden one?
Not sure what your return route is but just so you are aware.
Thanks for making my summer more enjoyable with another awesome report. It has been great following your progress.
bahhhh, he can hold his nose,,,He IS from Bama!
I suppose had he been riding a BMW there would have been issues...
