No problem. Feel free to mail me. We can surely meet. May be we can ride to a place as well. I will be back from Sikkim in 15days.
Yes, I have a confession to make. I am at it again. Eighty years old and riding a motorcycle (though only a small one). I fly to Delhi, India on the 7th to collect a 125 and ride back to the UK via Pakistan, Iran, Armenia, Georgia etc. etc....
The change from Old Man On A Bike to Old Men Can't Wait is self explanatory. I shall be moving on soon - to a higher or lower plane. Fortunately for my heirs, my great great grandfather built the church in our village and we retain ownership of a large part of the cemetary so burying me will be cheap. Meanwhile time to get on with it, polish my shoes, pack my bags, dig the helmet out of the store cupboard. Nervous? Yes, a little. Actually, more than a little...
SIGNATURE MATERIAL FOR SHURE!!!
Wow, just looked you up on amazon and I now know that I met your son 20 odd years ago (he had been following the sun teaching scuba diving around that time. He told me his dad was writing a Alistair Maclean book).
Good luck with this trip. I once considered buying a KTM duke 200 in India and riding it around the coast and brining it back to the UK (airfreight), but lots of horrible Indian red tape got in the way.
This sounds great! I'd love to ride India one day. For now I'll just live vicariously.
That would be Mark, now teaching science at a Grammer School, wonderful wife, two divine girls (10 months and 4 years)....
If traveling vicariously, hope you don't suffer when/if I fall off?!!!!
In, in, IN! Sir, I bow before you. You're an inspiration!
Your travels are inspirational and your philosophy to life refreshing.
125cc & lesser is the way forward, my small capacity bikes always make me smile and cause the larger machines to sit idle in the garage.
Wish you well and keen to follow another of your exploits
As always you give me great inspiration that at 54 there is still time for me to take long trips. I am subscribed and as always follow your journeys with great anticipation.
