    Great ride report! Absolutely brilliant reading and fantastic photography. And I was one of the six!

    To all - Although I have been to a few far off places in the past I am a cautious rider. And I can just about ensure the TC oil level is fine. If you have a bike, a credit card, pack your GSH, join Monkeyboy on his next wild tour and JFDI.

    Thank you very much. I really enjoy your RRs and it gives me a smile reading it. The emotion is put into words. Cracking photos.

    Just finished making my Christmas presents By my calculations they come in at about £2500 each



    To anyone that's read the report there is all sorts of stuff in these. Bottles negotiated for and bought from a beautiful warm cafe in Shangri La, sand from the Kasak desert where I saw the camels quietly pad between the houses, pebbles from outside St Basils in Red Square, seeds from plants struggling against all odds, horse hair that was hiding in the short grass at Son Kol lake, all sorts of spices passed to me by wrinkled dirty hands in sweaty markets, stones levered from the cliffs at Tiger Leaping gorge, green dust from stones by a landslide in Laos, all sorts of weird alien food ingredients from Chinese shops, black soil from the Russian wilderness, wispy plant seed heads that I watched bend to the breeze in Tibet, some poo pellets from the arse of an unknown animal that crossed my path sometime in the past, wood from a tree outside a hotel in Kyrgystan where I stood and felt the wind suddenly rise and announce an approaching storm, all topped off by some pebbles and prayer flags retrieved from the permafrost up at Everest base camp. Every colour brings back a memory, every line a moment in time. What a sad muppet Want to make some for yourself Look Here.

    A very merry Christmas to everyone, and here's to lots of good riding in 2018. Life is short. JFDI.

    I hope you've got one for yourself as a memento.
