    Trip of a life time! Part 1 - or why I haven't ridden my Turner in a half year

    Why haven't I been riding my beloved Spot? 'cause I've been riding this....

    In six months this beast has taken us through Nepal, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Burma!

    Very very cool! I hear the Highline is the new tandem - You've got adventure going on there. On my last trip to Grand Junction I met a Japanese guy - Tomo - who was riding his touring bike from Alaska to Patagonia with a buddy - lots of great stories, at least the little bit we could understand. Have fun!

    Very cool! Just one question - Could you fit any more water bottle cages on that frame?

    Now that is interesting

    Posts like this keep me coming back to this board. AWESOME! I get emotional just thinking about a trip like that--talk about freedom and experience. You will never forget a ride like that. Biking is about experience not brand.....

    Unbelievable!

    What an amazing trip! Can't wait to actually make it to India myself. Congrats on an epic adventure.

    You had a lot of great pics, but this one made me laugh. Vegetarian, no-beef Micky Ds!

    Quality!
