    Coffee Honda Africa Twin - AROUND THE WORLD

    I am stuck here in Massachusetts, where it is a balmy +15ºF today, and the bike is in Florida where it is in the low 60s (). Since I am stuck in the house, I have been bingewatching William Gloege's YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/willyg580/videos

    William posted his trip of riding solo around the world, and he has been to some amazing places. He also discusses how he set the bike up for such a trip, and he injects his quirky sense of humor throughout. I started where he buys the Africa Twin brand-new in November 2016 , and am currently on episode 15 - Turkey.

    I will never do a trip like this, and definitely not on a VTX, but I am enjoying living vicariously through him. I figured that I am probably not the only guy "stuck in the house," and that some of you might enjoy it.

    If you watch the video above, which is not the best of the 30, you don't get a feel for the series. This is a better video to give you an idea of what the videos are like;


    William's significant other seems to be an angel.

    I was wondering about this posting until I saw the date of posting.
