Touring Ted

2 wheels & no sense. My Motorcycle travel blog.

Archive for March, 2009

Since returning to the shores of Merry old England in May 2008, I’ve had nothing but a desire to travel more and more. If anything, I want to get away even more than before I set off for South America.

Travelling (and especially on motorcycle) is such a fantastic life changing experience it is something that I think I will always have to do. I’ve met so many fantastic people and experienced things that I only dreamt of and I’ve barely scraped the surface of planet Earth.

I’ve been hatching up a few hair braining ideas since my return since last May whilst still paying for my last trip ! I ended up spending about £10,000 in South America and I only budgeted for £5,000. The £2500 trip to Antartica and my lack of planning for beer and hotels really hit the credit card hard. So, the last year has been spent paying off that extra £5000 and saving enough to buy my current steed… A 1999 battered Africa Twin that has already been to South Africa and back (so hopefully she knows the way lol)..

Soooooo !! The saving starts now.  And now the eternal question  ! WHERE ????????????????????????

I’m toying with the idea of riding from the UK to Capetown then back to to Argentina and upto Colombia again (visiting the west coast of South America which I missed) OR maybe riding to Australia…

Watch this space  🙂
