Charlie and Ewen don't hold a candle to these intrepid adventurers.
No modern high tech iron for these guys....

A pox on you for that post; now I have to drag the fridge and chamberpot in next to the computer. :hb:
Here's a YouTube vid of one of those bikes idling. Exposed valvetrain stock. :shock:

Fascinating read of the chronicles of 2006. I've always wanted to head out to Turkey and on to India and further west on a bike. But somehow I never imagined Iran to have places full of both civilized, honest, and friendly people; as well as areas where you literally need to be escorted by armed commandos and need to sleep on top of jails for protection.
"At some point we reached a checkpoint where soldiers of the regular army forces were busy harassing some refugees. I was instructed by my commando to stop the bike, as he felt like participating in the harassment, and maybe even take it to a higher level. One of the refugees had a bundle which he refused to give away, despite all attempts of the soldiers to take it. My commando easily solved this by simply beating the man to death. The man screamed and cried until he could not scream and cry anymore. Some other soldiers tore apart the bundle to find only some clothes and kettles. Some other soldiers dragged away the dead body. We moved on towards the border, but the screams and the look on the dead mans face we brought with us."
Aren't these the same guys who were planning the attack on Canada because of that reprint of the danish cartoon in a Calgary paper? We're so lucky here in BC and the rest of western Canada that we can head over to Alberta without dealing with this.
