Helmet Stories


With one notable omission I hope to complete my bucket list of rides in the coming months.

Every trip I gather experience to try something more ambitious. I’m riding places now solo I never imagined.

This has reaffirmed I might not be a total dumbass and there is some merit to ‘look at your end game’.

By that I mean most people have a bucket list but no plan just ‘one day’. I decided to look at life backwards, from the end. To ask when is ‘one day’?

Observations of friends approaching or in their retirement reveals a pattern. Join some organised tours or do the big caravan trip then things slow. 

Maybe small solo travel but the big adventures once dreamt of are not undertaken. It’s too much bother, lack of confidence, energy and strength not what it was. ‘One day’ for them has become past tense.

I may have this all wrong. Everyone around me is betting they can buy a younger version of themselves in their later years. Even as a boxed trifecta it seems long odds to me.

Well time to board plane number one of three on my way to South Africa before I make more excuses.



  1. Go for it mate! You have the right idea.

  2. Looking forward to some more entertaining stories from the road. As JRR Tolkien once said "The roads winds ever on..."


Hey go right ahead and post something here. I'd love to hear from you and your comments will be published soon as I review them - this is just to stop spam otherwise I end up with 50 'cheap viagra' advertisements posted here.
