    I'm going to be in Greece, Albania, Macedonia (and further north) in early April 2019. If you want to send Bacon, he can check off a few more countries.

    Surely there are some Christmas photos along with some tales of debauchery from New Year.

    Sorry folks! For some reason I didn't get any emails that there was such a demand in here and I assumed Bacon related attention was low! I should have known better.

    He is indeed back in Melbourne! I pulled up here last September and, except for a jaunt around Tassie on the bike, I haven't moved since! I think I'll be settling down here for a good while now so he needs some new adventurers to tag along with! I was hoping Martin and Xenia would want to take him to Africa too but they have shunned him in favor of lightening the load (physical and photographic) and apparently carrying underwear is more important than Bacon!

    I'll be in the UK at the end of August and maybe Switzerland around the same time so shout up if you know someone is heading out! Africa is still a big empty spot for Bacon, as is much of the Middle East.

    In the meantime we'll try and do a catchup with GazzaFish! When was Bacon last back home?

    Of course we are interested!

    GazzaFish, in the immortal words of Pike, "shall I shoot him, Mr Mainwaring" :gun2

    If you can make it to Shitney by next saturday I can take Bacon on safari to Kenya and Tanzania

    Well, what can I say. After 12 years, today I have finally been re-United with my Bacon. It overwhelms me with joy to see Bacon bring so many adv riders together and cover so much of our wonderful world. I’m planning a couple of short rides for old time sake before potentially throwing Bacon a huge 12th birthday party in the very near future before he continues on his way as a traveller needs to keep exploring. Big thanks to Joshua for meeting me today and looking after our little porker. Stay tuned people... 710C4B13-73A4-4404-B343-4346E79382A8.jpeg

    Good news and good to see him out again. It's just real shame that his bag of goodies went missing somewhere.

    Great to see him again, this is so cool that he is still going!

    My thoughts..... keep him clutter free, no bag of goodies is needed.
