Goodbye my friends


In the morning I followed Chip and Ken out of Kaunas and south towards Poland. Seeing their yellow Klim jackets again was a pleasantly familiar sight. When we got to the turn off for Kaliningrad we pulled over to say our goodbyes. As I recalled first meeting them in Seoul, I realised how far we’d travelled together.

My original plan was to give it a day or so and see how we got on. Three is a strange number and I didn’t expect we’d get all that far together. As it turned out we got on really well, making a good team by playing on each other’s strengths.

I’m sure they’ll have a ball blasting through Europe, Octoberfest, seeing Ken’s wife in Milan before shipping the bikes bike from England. I doubt I’ll be home in time to catch them again, so take care guys!

It’s been a privilege.

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!
