Don’t tell my Mom I rode 17,000kms from China to France on a stolen proto Yam XT250X.

    Any chance he died on the route home? Hate to breech the subject, but ... at this point it's becoming a little weird.

    His last post on advrider was made December 17th, 2012. This is after I resurrected this thread in November. He has certainly seen the replies here I would assume, and he has posted in other threads, but not here. I'm not sure what is going on. I have since sent him a pm that he hasn't yet responded to (I'm not sure if I sent the pm before or after December 17th).

    Frederic is alive and well. He was in Los Angeles last week and last summer borrowed the ADV Loaner Honda Shadow 750 and spent around 6 weeks touring the Western United States - part of it with the lovely Laurane

    He's currently back in France and staying busy.

    Hopefully he'll get around to updating and finalizing this RR.

    This has to be the longest running ride report in existence. And I am the stupid f#ck who just subscribed.

    I get that you are living an unbelievable life, but it takes discipline to write a ride report man! Get on it!

    :lol3 :clap

    Enjoying your report Freddy! But in this tempo I'll be an old man when I get to read the US ride report...

    Keep up the good work!
