I met up with Harry Lyon-Smith this evening, what a riot we had! Harry has ridden here from England on a Diesel Royal Enfield, running on vegetable oil! The Royal Enfield club caught wind of his escapades and instantly made him an honoury member. (Even though it goes before the club motto “Thrift before honour!”). Here’s Harry’s Blog:
I managed to have a long chat about all kinds of travel requirements, about routes, borders and costs etc.. Food for thought is skipping through Azerbijan into Turkey and up through Greece, rather than across Russia. One recurring theme seems to be the temperatures in elevated China and Russia, especially at that time of year.
Harry continues on tomorrow and I doubt we’ll meet again, as he’s heading to Queensland via the coast – then Canada, America and down into Chile. Maybe in England one day?
Either way, Veggi Bloke – I salute you!
