    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.
