    Oh no not more whinging, "its to hot", "its to cold", "Its to heavy", "I'm to tired", "I just want to go home to my wife"

    Maybe Charlie will take his wife along on the next Dakar.

    And before someone else says "at least he's out there doing it", most of us would be doing the same if we got free bikes and back up and had a movie star friend to tag along with just to make the TV companies sit up and take notice. One wonders just how far "Charlies Long way Round" would have got. Possibly the same distance as "Jakes Long Way Round."

    Regards

    So Charlie Boorman tells it as HE sees it. You are a miserable load of shits to denigrate him because he has the luxury of being able to do what a lot of us dream about. Jeezus what are you all about here whingeing about someone who has the freedom to do what most of us would like to do.What he did in the Dakar took a lot of guts, and this OZ thing of bringing the icons down is a failure in Oz society to recognise SUCCESS.

    Totally agree with you Molahs,the problem with most people is they are to busy whinging and complaining and blaming every other f$%^#$%^ for their current situtation in life ,that they can't get off there sorry arse and try and change there own situation or give someone credit for achiving something that they can't.Unfortunaly 90% of the population are like this .

    Gimme a break. It's handed to him on a platter, and he still whines.

    If it was any of us, being paid to ride someone else's bike, stuck in the mud, we'd be saying "how good's this?!"
