02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Ama, you had my thoughts wondering and I actually have a couple of old pics. I think I should actually do a ride report when I have the energy to do it, but here are a couple of pics taken from my first bike trip ever - I rode from Pretoria to Israel in 1994 with a total budget of R3000.

Here we did not listen to local knowledge and ended up spending a couple of days in the mud:






This was when I crossed the equator in Uganda:



And lastly, one in the Nubian desert in Sudan:

Nice pics

I'm just wondering. That person in the black leathers and black helmet that LS posted, why is his beemers back wheel so much bigger than his front wheel?
Great news, my book 'Sniffer' has seen the light of day on Amazon Kindle!
