Her ride ahead looks SCARIER than an Evel Knievel jump.

You said it Martyn, A very courageous lady ...or is she?

This prompted me to look up who this chick is. Turns out she got along pretty good with some of them to the point where she really ain't as smart as ya'll may think, HERE IS A QUOTE from an article I just read about her trip...

"According to Pryce, people Iranians were also eager to discuss the West with her. Her bike was left in the care of friends in Tehran, and she is eagerly making plans to return and learn more about the beautiful terrain and kind locals she encountered."

Did ya get that, SHE LEFT A TTR in Iran!

WHAT?
...maybe it will get stolen, Hassan Rouhani (their "pres") will ride it, fall in Luv with our little blue machine
and Finally ... WORLD PEACE!!!

==== soorry folks, coffee and freezing rain have kept me inside this a.m., ...Party onaww

biggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrin We live in hope!

I have read a couple of her books and she came to talk to our local trail riders group about her adventures a couple of years ago when she wasn't quite so well known.

That's some good coffee you're on man!

Actually, as I understand it, visas and work/life commitments meant a longer stay wasn't possible. I believe Lois will be back out there as soon as possible. And it's not difficult to make friends in Iran, in fact it's near impossible to avoid it. Their hospitality is relentless!

By the way, theft is not that common out there as penalties are quite severe. It's a nice dream though...

Simon.
