    Hey all

    So itchy feet have kicked in again, having been back since 2015 from our Americas Ride it was time to hit the road again.

    Although this one will be short at only 6 months (rather than 3 years) I am doing this one solo, doing the Road Of Bones and Mongolia Etc wasn't Ellens idea of the ideal getaway so I am going to clobber this one out one up, next year we will be back at it in the depths of Russia hopefully on a Ural Gearup Sahara.

    This round I am on a WR250R named 45, simple, lite, Japanese etc.

    I will be posting on here but it will be smaller due to the amount of work involved as I am doing everything complete on this trip and I prefer riding not writing.

    You can see here for my writeup and our blog at www.twomotokiwis.nz

    Heya Clint

    I hadn't checked in here for yonks, ha we are supposed to be in Russia now riding but CV19 took care of that.

    Bonus, we are going to travel the North Island, come up in the bus and do MTBing, fishing etc so will swing by yours if you are going to be home.

    For all you other inmates I intended to put the report on here too but the platforms where different enough that it is above my pay grade, anyway, if you are interested in the ride report this is the link to it. https://www.remotemoto.com/articles/korea-russia-stans-to-east-europe/

    Next year all going well we will liven the report up on here for the next few years....CV19 dependant

    Cheers Andi
