I am a New Zealander living in the UK
About to ride a tiny japanese scooter called Sprocket
12000 miles through Europe, Russia and Central Asia
For a Mongolian Charity
I am ¡Zorritos Loquitos!
Why am I really interested in doing this kind of rally? Well the simple reason is that I believe in doing good things.
The deeper reason relates to an idea I have had for a while, and I will try to explain. As a kiwi living in the UK, I am evidence that the world is becoming a smaller place, and it is now relatively easy to travel vast distances across the globe. Between New Zealand and the UK I stopped for 2 hours in Singapore airport; How much do we miss by travelling this way?
The type of transport I have chosen will limit me to a crusing speed of 30-40mph. I hope this will allow me to absorb more of my surroundings rather than to just pass them by.
