Thanks, Have been looking through guides and even the travel channel website to find when it will view. Found some small snippets, it seems he started on a Harley, which then broke and then switched to a 990 Adventure.

Looks like he had a great time.

I find his RR's seem to be more about the country than the ride, Well, it  is the travel channel....

regardless, he has a great job  ;D

The KTM lasted from Kuruman to Kenhardt.  He started on a Truimph Metisse.

I wonder about how many things he will bitch and moan about in this episode!

Jirre, his got the dream job and all, but bloody hell, when he rode in Russia, he encountered a few pot holes and he said to have to deal with this type of terrain is like riding motocross.................   WTF???

I have never seen someone bitch so much while having the best job in the world!!

S'true.....but the poms do that sort of thing..... when he did the USA series, he bitched so much that I felt he should rather have been in the car and given the bike to the camera man. I eventually turned the sound down and just enjoyed the ride. I just bitch and moan that I don't have a job like he has...LOL
