Thumper talk Forum for example. These guys don't know me but I am a fellow biker trying to achieve a dream and since reading about my trip, offers of support have come in thick and fast, from places to stay in the US, food, parts, donations and even a commemorative tattoo on my arrival! Join in if you fancy a chat......http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/351-crf250l/
My dad picked up a leaflet from the Overland show for me while I was away. It was for Motofreight.com. I emailed to see if they could help with some of my shipping questions. Within a day of sending that email, Roddy got back to me with a full page of really useful information for my entire trip as well as estimated
On top of that I have met up with an old friend, seen amazing generosity from a total stranger (but perhaps a kindred spirit) and I put a few more pieces of the jigsaw in place all thanks to fellow bikers!
Bikerforum.com (Judge Jules) has agreed to ride around Bangor (North Wales) in a Mankini on my Honda CRF250L if I make it back in one piece! The forum will attempt to raise money for charity and if we hit 2k and two cans of Monster Energy he is going to go for it. The money will be split between 2 charities. One of his choice and one of mine. Now come on! Is that worth it??? Oh yes!!
It's been a great week! Here's to the bikers of the world.
Next week - Big up the Biker Babes of Britain!
