Hi all,

Me and my motorbike Dot are just on an impromptu adventure across the world from Sydney to London and thought you might like to read about it.

I suppose it's different from most because we did no planning or forward thinking, we just set off and rode at Dot's incredible pace of 65km/h.

We're currently in Thailand about to board the plane to Nepal but thought it best to go back to where it all began... Australia...

All this proves is that there is no better bike, except maybe a BMW  :pot:

Now that is adventuring at its best. Yes it isn't comfortable. Yes it doesn't look flashy. Yes its slow. And yes you can carry it up to the 7th floor hotel room. But less up to the challenge it is not.

ANY bike can get you there, some just faster and some with more comfort and some allow you to play more.

All the best boet. All the best.

Adventure is a lifestyle and not what you ride. Who you are will depend on what adventure is to you.
