Thanx for the write up and terrific pictures ~! .
Hi Nathan and Dot,
Right about those panniers - they wouldn't last long in Bankok traffic (or any tight spot) and must really restrict agility.
Regarding rebuilding Dot's bottom - best left to an experienced mechanical engineer. The crank has to be separated
to fit the new big-end bearing and then pressed together with great accuracy. Been there : next time I'll just try to get a
whole new crank / rod assembly, though this may not be an option for you in light of keeping Dot's vital organs original.
Whoever does it, you'll need to separate the cases - the best advice I have is .... get a manual with exploded diagrams,
and take photographs of everything as you go. Everything.
" ...laying plans for when the time comes to take off again and see something new." .......... GREAT !
The exploded parts diagrams @ Bike Bandit Etc. are a boon when you dip into the internals , print 'em out @ 125 % and scribblenotes on 'em as you go along .
Small bikes can turn to great trips!
Its good to see you have kept an open mind, and perspective on life. There are a LOT of good things out there, small bikes, big bikes. Freedom of riding, also owning a home and having the money to buy nice things. Its all a balance of being responsible and happy at the same time. Get to focused on one aspect of life, and the rest can come crashing down... It seems like you have a real good head on your shoulders. I have no doubt you will have a great ride in life, both on and off the motorcycles
Double dang! I can't believe I missed the trip to AK and the book. Nathan, glad to see you're still at it. I've really enjoyed reading about your travels and the pictures and videos.

This is a podcast about NathanthePostman's ride.
Hey, thanks for the last post - I didn't know there was a second book. I just bought it and am reading it now.
Well, it seems an age (and it was) since this adventure begun, but six years on a very talented group of folks called Make Your Bones have put my footage together to make a short documentary about my travels from Sydney to Alaska on a 105cc CT110.
I hope you like it.
Just watched it on FB. Very enjoyable fella. Props to you for talking about your depression too.
Thanks for sharing, been a fan and following you here on ADVRIDER from the start. Have to say everytime I get on my CT110 I wonder if I could do it. Then wonder what it must have been like for you heading into the unknown.
Thanks for bringing some cheer into a gloomy day.
Brought back the good memories of following the RR "live".
Congratulations are in order!!
Keep positive and still looking forward to the day we meet.
Thanks Nate for checking in.
I was fortunate to find your rr live when it was just a week old...cool to see where it led you.
Congrats on your marriage. Thanks for the update. I've so enjoyed your travels and articulate musings. Keep rubber side down.
Good times! Great trip!

How in the world did I miss all this? Thanks for sharing.
