Met Chip and Ken.


My agent Wendy mailed to tell me there were two guys arriving in Seoul. They were heading to Vladivostok on the same ferry as me, planning to ride their bikes across to Europe and then the UK. She was going to meet them and would I like to come?

Sure, sounds like fun and I might even get to do some of the ride with company. The hand of fate is a curious thing isn’t it? I went along and met with Chip and Ken, they seem like nice blokes. They’re riding older BMWs, with long range tanks which is important.

We rode well together through Seoul and out to the country yesterday. They’re easy to get along with and don’t seem to mind having me along. I did check that over dinner, as I didn’t want to intrude. At this stage I’ve no idea how long our respective journeys will impinge, but there’s a good chance will be together for a while yet.

And why not!

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
