I ran into my new friend again.
Not only are they riding up to Alaska they are also riding back from Alaska.
They will have their work cut out for them.
It’s his girlfriend, not wife.
They’re late-ish 20’s. Just finished school and are on vacation.
And if you’re in the LA area in I’d guess several weeks or a month or so there will be basically a brand new BMW with a shit ton of miles for sale around than.
It seems like quite the adventure they’d going on and I wish them the best.
Before we hit the roads we take all our adventurers on an acclimatisation ride to get used to insane power of the Royal Enfield Motorcycles…and the fact that they ride on the left hand side of the road. Gwen who was one of two ladies on the Top of the World adventure in 2014 was from Kansas USA so was glad she had a day on the bikes to get up to speed.
I need a tv series of Candice and Jane’s road trip where they bump into Selasi on his motorbike tour and Rav on his travels and Val on her trip and Louise’s wedding and basically all the others at some point because that’s what I am about
This was our first stop after the Darcha checkpoint. This area was covered in snow two storeys deep just a few months before. You can see the marks in the road made by the graders and bulldozers that are used to clear the snow.
My bike as stolen 2 nights ago and the police weren’t interested and have done precisely jack to catch them or recover the bike. I’ve had to go out looking for it, speak to neighbours and ask about CCTV myself. I’ve got it back now albeit with the wiring loom hanging out and I’ve spent all yesterday afternoon rewiring it but it fires up again
If you have yours stolen don’t wait on the police helping you, get out immediately and check around your home within 300 yards, every unlocked garage, passage, shared car park, unoccupied or derelict property; as the thieves push it off and hide it somewhere close in case the police have been called and actually decided to attend so they’re not caught with it. Mine was casually parked in a shared car park of some flats 1 street away where no one would notice a new bike or know who would or wouldn’t have one in the flats. I spoke to one guy who said he wondered who’s it was but had no reason to call the police.
