That's just a list of his journey's. Not a link. You click on a link and it takes you to the program.
But doing a search I've found this one
His round the world trip on the chopper
Prelude to the above trip
This movie on the Indian trip is neat.
I have not found anything on the others or even if Doug did a trip report.

Hey Doug, I've noticed that you have worn those Areostich Combat Lites on your last two trips. How do you like them? Comfortable enough for all day? Have you had to have them re-soled? Great report, thanks.
OH no why'd you have to point that out, next thing you know he'll be wearing an Aerostich!!!
Doug w/ an Aerostitch I'd almost pay money to see that!!!
LOL oser I'm not holding my breath
Funny you should ask that, because I asked Doug in his previous ride report (LINK) if he was wearing Combat Touring Boots! Doug's response to me:
And, BTW, I bought the Combat Lites a little over a month ago, and so far they're just fine. Here's my review (LINK).
I've got the combat boots and they are comfy, short break in, wouldn't want to walk in them all day but not bad. Not water proof.
I wear combats. Just gotta keep the waterproofing up on them. Mine are good for all day and as much walking as I wanna do.
When i grow up i wanna be just like you.....Or the pope, whatever
Now, that's just funny.
Personally, I think more highly of Doug.
Hmmmm....and I thought Doug WAS the Pope!
(the Pope of motorcycle touring that is!!!)
Just like the old joke...
As the Pope and Doug come walking out of the Vatican together, somebody in the crowd ask's: "Hey...who's that old dude with Doug?"
WTF? Your crummy joke knocked the sticky off this thread. :ddog
That is WTF....maybe the Pope read it....anyhow, here's a bump to get it back up to the top... sorry....
Doug, are you going to give us an update any time soon???
Most likely not. He is back in the states and attending Vintage Days at Barbers Motorsports. A big part of his business I believe. I am sure we will hear from him next week.
I've been a long tyme reader and fan of Doug's travels...and I'm sure I'm not alone is wondering how a person finances extraordinary travels like these?? I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking.."if I only had the time & means". I work hard, and pay my bills...but how does a guy move beyond the roadblock of daily life??? What's the secret?? Invent the next mousetrap??
Some will say things like "work hard and save your money". I say BS to that! That'll only take you so far. A working stiff may be able to do 1 big trip in his lifetime...but to do world tours...what...5 years in a row, on 5 different bikes??? (Is Doug a relation to the Rockefellers???)
I'm NOT trying to downplay his trips by any means....NO F*CKIN' WAY!!!
I'd just like to know how a guy can make a trip like this, and not have to sell his home to pay for it?? (at least...that what my wife wants to know )
(*sorry Doug if this is a thread hyjack*)
