Amazing, you Brits do some amazing travel stuff.

You must have had some saved up funding to pull off
this amazing adventure.

I had the opportunity to meet your adventure type
living in Italy for 4 years. It is almost as if you reject
the normal. I had the same love for travel and stayed
in Europe for one year to experience it all.

So, is this the shacking out of adventure, or will
you continue?

That's an incredible adventure. Reminds me of Shreve Stockton or Itchy Boots.

I'll be adding an ET4 to my stable soon but I don't see myself heading out for Alaska or South America. I way too big a spoiled wuss for anything like that.

Thanks for sharing this. Wow. Cinematic.

Just based on where she lives, her elocution says she must come from some wealth. Having wealth is necessary but the spirit of adventure is required to undertake such a journey.
Wonderful to watch and vicariously live through others experiences at times is also wonderful.

I guess I have been doing just that. I have now watched that video 4 or 5 times and it just keeps getting better.

She's a tenacious woman and the envy of many. I bet she lost her front fender when being given assistantce on the Pamir Highway through Tajikistan. If you try to lift the front of a scooter using the fender, it usually results in the two parting company.

My father-in-law passed away a year and a half ago and I've inherited his ET4. It's still in his garage since I've been lazy about title transfer paperwork and going to haul it home. It has not run in several years so it will need some TLC. It's pretty though.
