    Here is my Day 5 video. "Ability of a person is not how he has planned, but how he stands and faces the challenges of life when everything he planned goes wrong"

    Hey guys, I finally got a chance to upload day 9 video to YouTube. At the end of day 8 Shane told me to go down south for a 800 kilometer 12 hour detour. Met an older guy in the morning, had an interesting conversation and off I went for day 9 ride. I met a guy named Phil on my way to Calgary and we rode together to his home, where he let me stay for the night. I had fun playing with his little daughter Penelope!

    Bicycles arent my thing however, riding more than 50 miles (80km) in a day after not riding these for a few years isnt all that bad i guess. I left Leamington Spa at 7am without an Agenda and came back promising not to sit on one of these things ever again. I have no idea how Kamran (KamranOnBike.com) had even attempted to pedal from Germany to Pakistan on a bicycle.

    Unfortunately, he had to take a break in Turkey and fly back Multan, Pakistan as his mother was in the ICU. I would like to dedicate this video to Kamran's mother for bringing up a soldier. No ordinary soul can come up with an idea of riding 10,000 Kilometers in 100 days, about 100km a day for 100 days. In this video i did 80km and this was enough to tell me what this guy was doing had been an amazing feat.
    With all our prayers, Kamran's mother will be up and running soon inshAllah, and Kamran will hopefully return to Turkey to complete his DifferentAgenda.
    Please keep her in your prayers, may Allah give her strength.

    I don't get it... why is there no posts yet from fellow ADVriders?? Something like... "cool" or "wow" or "epic!" maybe..? Well, I'm in here and I'll gladly welcome you on your way south. Let me know as early as possible when that will be! And now;
    GO MOIN, GO!!

    Don't worry, everyone is busy debating whether BMW or ktm is better and worrying about when their final drive is going to explode. You are out there making it happen! Have fun, be safe and keep posting!

    Video doesn't lend itself to interacting in the way text and photo's do which is probably why there isn't so much feedback. They're a nice addition to a more traditional report but speaking for myself, I just can't watch that many video's. :dunno

    But good luck on your Adventure :thumb

    I kind of agree. Pics and a well written story are better than videos. I love looking at pics, that is the MAIN reason I joined this forum. The pics are fantastic. Just my opinion.

    Anyways, good luck on your travels.

    The beast. GS1200.
    It was weird at first to sit on a true touring motorcycle, the best in its class. Overwhelmed with the sitting position and the comfort it brought, i just realized after about 13,000KM that im on a very uncomfortable bike haha..
