i'm guessing that this has been passed around already, but incase it hasn't, follow this link for the most impressive tour photos imaginable.

this is what we all dream about.

It had to be an amazing trip. Launching into a solo trip across that terrain under those conditions is quite a feat. Plus all the gorgeous scenery you can only find in dessert regions. I didn't read every page and since I don't know Polish I didn't read his daily log, but he seemed to have relatively few equipment problems. Perhaps it was his planning or maybe the remoteness tended to keep him out of damaging debris. Anyway it looks like a very cool trip.

what an absolutely epic trip. I am from Oz and have travelled into some remote and tough places. Always in a well equipped car. doing this sort of stuff on a bike is absolutely huge. Much respect.
