Thanks for the link Steve! I haven't finished the read yet but just from the portion I have read I'm impressed. Stories like this always make me think. Here's a guy traveling in some of the harshest areas of the world both physically and politically and getting it done on POS bikes with little to no farkles. Yet somehow, we feel like we can't get across America without a $1000 GPS, $2000 luggage, a $15000+ motorcycle, $1500 worth of protective gear, thousands worth of tents and camping supplies etc etc. Really makes you appreciate the simplicity of motorcycle travel in its original honest form.
