There is no doubt that some people think we are crazy. There are also those out there who are more than a little envious of our lifestyle.
We’ve always want to live our lives with as few ‘if-onlys’ as possible. We didn’t want to sit back in our dotage and wish we’d done the big trip and regretted not doing it. There may be no tomorrow so you have to live life to its fullest.
When Shirley’s sister died of cancer there were many ‘if-onlys’ in her life. She was cut down in her prime with so much left to do – so much life to live.
Brian has owned and ridden motorcycles for more than 40 years, starting off riding paddock bikes around his father’s farm near Mildura (Victoria). His back yard was about 90 miles of river frontage. Brian has no doubt that riding on mud, clay, sand, salt flats and bush trails all those years ago will help when he rides across Siberia, through the wilds of Mongolia and the mountain passes of Tajikistan’s Pamir Region.
Brian has the good fortune of having a wife who likes riding pillion and enjoys long distance trips too. Our other great leisure time passion is travelling. We want to experience everything we can.
