dear friends. suddenly we had so many friends looking at our blog. we felt encouraged. thank you everybody. We are at Bolivia. Might be the first singaporean to travel on bike on this route here. also, we might be the first round the world biker to lost the bike before the trip and still manage to start within 2 months. refer to my posting in 2007. about sponsorship: before my bike was lost we had sufficent fund for the trip and would not want any publicity. my 2 years effort Africa Twin (AKA Hope) was stolen with important equipments 2 months before the big day. our funding was much tight then. we 60 letters out to all the singapore listing company, top 10 singapore brand to seek for "backup funds" or equipment supply with the help of some publicity. only 4 reply which are negative. i guess it´s too short time for the sponsor to react.
we hope to update more on the blog if we can find internet.
Atwin: i have found out something about the long way round and long way down stuff. the truth is that they..... .... many globe riders told me this. email me to know the truth. sponsor? i got many sponsor along the way espicially in pakistan, iran, turkey and some parts of europe. they gave us food, lodging and friendship. this is the kind of trip and people we want to meet. not about seeing the 7 wonder of the world. we love to see and understand about human. we also enjoy food and beer! of course not forgetting the lovely landscape, trees, flowers and animals.
Ivan: thanks for dropping by. hows NPCB folks?
