Touring Ted

2 wheels & no sense. My Motorcycle travel blog.

I will roll out at 7am tomorrow morning so I better write this now !

The bike is packed and all I have to do is go and ride it now….  There’s plenty of crazy thoughts running through my head right now. Will this old battered enduro bike make it ?? Will I bet able to get the visas ? Am I going to get kidnapped, murdered, run over and shot at ?  … Knowing me, probably all of the above !

To be honest, it’s the waiting which is the worst thing. I’ve been ready for a while now. I finished work over a week ago and i’m just bored sitting at home waiting to leave..

The thing i’m LEAST looking forward to is the long ride from my home in Merseyside to Neils place in Surrey. Avoiding Motorways (my bike isnt fast enough), it’s going to take about 6-7 hours.. Not fun in bank holiday traffic ! I guess im going to have to get used to this and back into the mind set.

While on the road, you become a different person. Living a day at a time is the norm. You get used to packing and unpacking your bike, looking for places to sleep and long long days in the saddle.  When you finish a trip and get yourself back into the “Bubble” of a nomral 9-5 comfortable existance. It’s very hard to lever yourself out of it again..

I’m looking forward to being that other person again because it’s a fantastic way to live and very “free” !!!   I miss it !
So, anyway ! I don’t know when the next post is coming.. Soon I hope !!  Off I go……..   😀
