Retired Canoe'st, big White water was the thing, Europe every summer, then Norway & Chile!
Motorcycling started with Trials competitions, many years ago, still have TY250 but too little time.
started on road bikes commuting few years ago.
China Jolly started, when Heather bought me the book 'Adventure Motorcycling Handbook' and I've watched too many other people do it, (certain series with two GSs).
