Ed March Around The World On A 30-Year-Old Honda C90


Quote:
When we read about people riding motorcycles around the world, the vision that often comes to mind is of big adventure touring bikes, packed to the gunnels with necessary supplies. This image has been fed to us by Long Way Round and other well-heeled and well-documented travels.

What if we were to tell you that there is a guy who is traveling around the world on a 30-year-old Honda C90 and having a blast doing it? Sounds like madness, right? Well, when Ed March told his friends that hed been inspired by the UKs Top Gear trio touring through Vietnam special and wanted to fly his C90 there and ride it back, they didnt just say he was crazy; they said, 'That is stupid. You cant ride a Honda C90 around the world.'

Dont ever tell March that something he wants to do is stupid because then the gauntlet has been thrown down, and he has no choice. Hes going to do that stupid thing which is exactly what hes spent the last few years doing. For his first trip, March shipped his bike to Malaysia and rode it 14,500 miles back to England over eight months. For his next adventure, he upped the ante, riding through the Arctic Circle in winter, up to the northern motor point in Norway in February about 4, 000 miles 'give-or-take,' he says.

I'vw been watching some of the videos from the site this am, and what is most striking is how being on motorcycles immediately takes all the glamour and pomp off for a couple of chaps who are generally used to being treated like celebrities. Ewan reminds me alot of Michael Palin when he was doing all hos travel video's in the 80's/90's. And the fact that Charley fell over four times the first day is a good sign of just equalizing a sport motrcycling is...... God I love riding!

Very cool that they are taking alot of time to see where they are going. Looking forward to more videos.......
