Borneo Equator Expedition - Jungle , Swamps and Heatstroke
« on: December 23, 2010, 07:06:52 pm »
I found this report on ADVrider by Monty, if it was on the WD's forum I think it would have to be in the role of honour section. Please click on the link if you would like to have a look.

5 bikes , some 4WDs and 2500 km of Kalimantan wilderness along the Equator.

A taste of things to come.........













This was going to be some of the hardest and in some places the most scariest riding I'd ever done.......

I followed it when he was writing it. Half way through he took off for two weeks to go ride a volcano somewhere and left us hanging!

Hardest core stuff. The trip leader sounds like an interesting guy.
I wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost

Yeah the same happened to me, so I went back this week and found it finished at last.
