The 751

I read this travel story years ago and decided to see if the site hosting it still existed.  Thankfully, it does, and has been extended with numerous other travel stories since the first 1999 instalment.

Read the original travel story here:, a tale of just how far you could get with $751 and an old motorcycle 20 years ago.  It is a truly great read; definitely one for me to include in the sidebar.

This should help pass a few hours of lockdown, and give inspiration for that far off time when we are free to move about in the world again.
