You will not bore us- you have captivated us

I agree "facebook sucks". I will follow along here. Good luck to you.
I was wondering if you had read his book. He is my hero and gave me a lot of insights into long distance riding when I was a youngster. I met him once and he was as kind and helpful in person as he was on the page. A great shame he, like the rest of us, had to die.
PS add me to the ranks of Riders Who Hate Facebook.
I'm guessing the canyon between Kabul and Jalalabad. I drove it back in the good old days (1973) in a VW van.

Moved to Trip Planning.. when you have a ride report to share, please post it in Ride Reports.
I'm in. This will be interesting no matter how it turns out.
Just drop by. And the beer is yours.
So it has been a while and some things have changed here. Anyways the preparations on the Vespa are pretty much all finished. Besides, last week we bought ourselves a car. The car will be a Lada Niva!
Here are some pictures.
The engine has been revised:
And the vespa was put back together again:
And now I am testing and running it in. I did 750km already and it is running and driving just fine!
And a picture of our magnificent car!
In the meantime we are busy with the visums and other preparations. Only 7 weeks left!
Nice, would be lovely to drop by! :)
Thanks! Show us your lambretta! :)
Unfortunately I haven't read it... I absolutely love old stories of people doing round the world trips.
It is somewhere in India. There was a dude who did quite a long trip through the himalaya.
I am not doing everything in the old way and thus I did mount a navigation:
Last week I mounted some racks in order to get my stuff along. I will post pictures soon.
Here some pictures for people who love engine rebuilds. I took the engine apart, replaced all the bearings, replaced the crankshaft, replaced the clutch plates, replaced cilinder and piston etcetera etcetera. I only used original piaggio parts.
The engine is running very well and has a very good fuel consumption, about 1l on 30km. :) It is also very smooth and runs quite easily 100km/hour.
Can a mod adjust the title and replace one car for one Lada?
We made the news this week:
At the start of our trip we will be filmed by Dutch national news.
