    It's been a lot of fun reading your trip report, and I love the fuel tank you built. Congratulations and good luck with your return!

    In the dim mists of the past, I spent some time on the fabulous Honda 90, so I actually was pretty confident that the little moto would be up to the task. I'm certain that the motor breakdown was entirely due to the extra weight of the rider's enormous gonads.:D
    Well done! Great ride & a great read.

    In 50 years of riding motorcycles this has to be one of the most incredible motorcycle adventure stories I have read.
    Incredible pictures and almost unbelievable trip if I didn't read it. Thank you for sharing.
