    :roflBeing stuck in the middle of the ocean on a oil rig with the Slovakian Princess on your mind is a recipe for wet dreams....:cry I know,I was in the navy.:D
    Serious note,man. I noticed that you are a man with great compassion by the way you wrap your arms around the children where ever you happen to be found. You're a good man.

    " i bumped into the world famous Terry Brown from Cambridge England who i would ride with for a few days and who would teach me the basics of off-road riding (riding whilst standing up/rider position, steering with knees on the tank & engine breaking)"

    Did he gleefully teach you any dance steps? :wink:

    Next summer Terry you can make amends - we will get some footage of you swimming across a river with a rope around your waist dragging the bike thru the river 10 yards behind ... then we can put to bed all this horrible bongo gossip !

    Yes traveling solo does have its distinct advantages, always makes things more of an Adventure and goes a whole lot farther with the locals rather than being in a posse. Being thought of as "crazy" is a good thing:lol3 Good on you man:clap:clap:clap

    This is going to be one wild ride an epic before it's over. I've come up on a couple of saviors or two while in a pinch out in the sticks but never had me a Slovenian princess:cry

    I figured those big oilies would have wifi piped in over the whole platform:huh
    Must suck a little, at least the funds come quick.

    You'll lucky, I've never had a princess.

    Still a whole hell of a lot more good people on this Earth than bad and riding a bike one seems to always find the good ones:thumb

    Many more great experiences to be had...
