    Not sure how I missed this RR. Looks pretty amazing, and I like the Chicago start. Gonna take me awhile to catch up, but looking forward to the read.

    Welcome to the journey! Yup, started from Chicago. I still need to finish the end. By the time you get to Namibia, I should have that posted up.

    I got a new ride! She's a 2003 Suzuki DRZ400. I was looking far and wide for my next ride after leaving sanDRina in India and figured a smaller bike would be more fun but it had to have enough power and this particular bike has a big bore kit on it, so it's a 440 cc engine and comes with a wide ratio clutch, making it more useful than stock as a dual sport bike. That Lynx fairing looks so rally that I feel like I should enter the Dakar now! Time to explore the Texas Hill Country ;)

    Hey friends, I'm happy to announce that my book about the journey has finally been published! It took longer to publish the book than ride from the US to India ;) This was quite the writing project for me over the past few years, on and off and I'm happy with how it turned out.

    It's available on Amazon now (paperback and kindle) and I'm trying to get a US distributor to bring it to bookstores. Please let me know what you think of the writing!

    Also, if you have a motorcycle magazine in mind that you think would like to review it, please let me know. Thanks!

    Thanks, mate. Can you provide the link to that? Looks like the link didn't make it.

    Thanks, Boris! I'm in touch with Lois Pryce, as she was writing for the adventure section of Bike magazine, but the review got stalled :/

    Thanks, I'll get in touch with her.

    Heya Chris! Thanks. No plans right now for a US book tour but I'll let you know if I'm coming by the bay area.
