“Where The Hell Is Murph?”

Editor’s comment: I received a telephone call this afternoon by a non-member who said that I should have a look at this guy called Murph – and who the hell is Murph? you (and I) might ask. Never before had I heard of him, however this phone call changed all that.

This man Murph is a traveller, an adventure rider of a class that few of us will equal. Maybe if this current life goes all pear-shaped I might do the same as what he has done – go travel on a bike with no return ticket… What a dream! -Ed.

The first video is an introduction, the second is a list of movies on youTube. Spend a Friday night,or a Saturday night seeing where Murph has been:

Sadly old age and ill health have caught up with George and he and Charis were not able to attend this year’s rally, but were there in spirit. – ed)

Kind regards,

New BMW F700GS & F800GS

“BMW Motorrad has announced updates for model year 2013 to their GS parallel twin models with the new F700GS and F800GS. Like the previous F650GS and F800GS, the model designations are misleading since both are powered by a 798cc liquid-cooled, … Continue reading
