    Hi, mates. We like to ride and we like to tell about our explorations, but sometimes seem that the story and the show off is more important than the ride itself. I have been in this business for a while and I remember my self traveling the Stans and I had no blog!!! wow, guy, you are just arrived from out space. Of course now I have a blog, books, videos, sponsors... I made my live around my dreams, but for me it is still the same, a very simple issue: to be wisdom, to come back better.

    I made a movie with some of my videos taken in the Middle East and that idea of living the rides.

    Since he's from Spain, and probably not a native English speaker, I'm assuming some of his intent is being lost. I had to read it a couple of times.

    ....I understood his english just fine and appreciate the fact that he communicated with us in our language.

    Would you rather he move to our country and expect us to learn his language?:ear (like what's happening today!):cry

    I think you missed the point. He is saying people like to brag too much about the rides they take, they shouldn't brag so much and enjoy the ride. but he has a business doing what he says is bragging...
    thats funny, don't care who ya are...:D

    ey, mates, do you think my English is bad?? probably it is, but I am pretty sure is much more better than your Spanish when traveling into Southamerica as good gringos and local people laugh at you :rofl

    No worries, not all of us could be as lucky as me to be born Spanish. Do not you think is good to be Spaniard? then you should watch how I got away without a speeding fine in Sudan

    Miguel, en que parte de Espana vives?

    Quizas, seria mejor al escribir tu mensaje en castellano para que alguno de nosotros te lo traduce al Ingles.
