  • Best Times
  • A charity ride in 2009. Rode through 15 countries in 16 days covering 6000 miles. First adventure and it was awsome, raised £3500 for charity to boot. April 2012 riding to the Sahara.
  • Worst Times
  • When I had to sell my 2003 Vardero last September. Having completed my first adventure on it, there were tears. But I have now replaced it with a 2007 model.
  • Previous Adventures

Hi Paul,

What you have set up is fine mate and so glad that you enjoyed the article - sorry I did not have time to stop in for a cuppa but I had to get back to pick the kids up - Daddy duty calls and all that. Really looking forward to seeing you at the rally if not before ;)
