Coming to America
« on: Jun 10, 2018, 02:59 PM »
Well everything is now packed as per the list below and a few more bits Gus and Rob have advised - i.e. some 4 seasons gear  :029:







So apart from the kitchen sink and I don't think I have missed anything  :notsure:

Wednesday is my last night in UK, so getting excited  :38: :38: :38: :38:

Rob is already on his way, so his trip report should start to appear very soon   :027:
I will try to get a daily report up (with pictures)  :notsure:

Where did that packing list come from?  It looks like something from the rental bike company, based on some of the comments.  Seems very extensive and a likely to cause you to pack everything and the kitchen sink on a trip like this.  Does the Tiger come with panniers AND a top case?   :008:

BTW, did I miss it or does it really make no mention of riding boots?  :notsure:


See you next week.   :031:

Hunting knife?
Does your insurance cover repatriation?
I want to retire, no longer required,
I want to get by without the man on my back.

Bumming fags is eminently acceptable in these enlightened times.

Smoking fags is, however, entirely frowned upon.
