    I was very sad to see Bacon go, but back to his owner is as good a place as any. He'd been with me for 2 years and 5 days as far as I can work out. Just over half of that time travelling from North India through almost all of South East Asia to Oz. The rest of the time sitting here keeping me company as I got settled in Melbourne. Now I'm living and working a mostly normal life I'm not nearly exciting enough for him, so he must move on.

    I've tracked back through the thread and updated the Bacon Conquered Nations! Adding Thailand, Brunei, Indonesia and Timor Leste:

    I got my final farewell Pic with Pig in Melbourne CBD with GazzaFish:

    Great - of all the photos not to show up on my screen, the farewell shot has to be the one. Thanks for taking Bacon, and us on some wonderful adventures.

    Bacon was very happy with the upgrade from my original bmw 650 to the Ktm990. He begged for a trip so off we went ...
