I wonder how the new clutch got so quickly wrecked.

I really don't know why it happened!...in Ep 1 you see him preparing for the trip & he is changing his clutch (genuine)...I assume it may have been installed incorrectly?...but it did get him to Portsmouth & all the way through Spain!??

Mr Worn!
Thank you for subscribing...the aim is just that(showing if we can do it; then anyone can).
I have mentioned the terrible news on here that John(el snipero!) has his bike in bits in my garage at the moment.
the obvious good news is that the bike made it ...so you can sleep easily tonight...the prowess of the mighty CB500 remains untarnished!

Joking apart...the bikes (when serviced!!!) are fantastic.  In 1 scene later on, we attempt to park our bikes in a room that we are staying in....The CB500 was much narrower than the other bikes & John just breezed in through the front door...parked up and took a shower....(alright...I made the shower bit up!...but the rest is true).  Great bikes!

Hi SullivJ & others!!...I hadn't forgotten to post up the next instalment; I'd realised that the content was not exciting people enough to reply/comment & so took a view on it!
The film has taken 07 months to edit (full time) & has taken its toll on me!
I am behind/lacking in my day to day business (including the very website Shaw2Shore.co.uk); which I planned to coincide with the release of the film.
A number of posters expressed concern that the episodes are not long enough. (I have tried to establish the credibility of the advice offered..  but to date without any success)
they may or may not have a point...I was simply following a reasoned/proven time frame..I have obviously a lot to learn!

There are 24 episodes in total...the plan was to release & then show outtakes/cockups/routes etc..im not sure now that people want to wait; So I have stood back for a while to re-evaluate,
while people subscribe/comment etc (which allows me to get my life back in order etc!!)..
..im just not sure at the moment what to do with the film..but I don't think Youtube is necessarily now the place to post up in its entirety.(certainly not the outtakes!!!)
Im on here most days-( and do reply!)I welcome any thoughts/direction..Its the adventure that keeps on rolling!...

Regards

I think your doing a great job on episodes rob, there always very witty with your comentary,  i like episodes to be longer like your other trip wil sniper. Some people have short attention spans 5 mins could be right amount. Maybe contact "bike "magazine in uk. See if they do a story of your trip with sniper. That get you more coverage and more people watch your stuff on you tube as they seen parts of it in magazine

Rod, I was concerned that you were sitting there thinking "you ungrateful bastards"!!

In my desperation to find out what happened to ration pack Dave. I'd be happy to pay a tenner for the remaining episodes.. Is that possible that you could charge for content?

Hey Rod, I too was feeling the same as Sully. I have really enjoyed your footage and appreciate your efforts and especially the content. I can empathise with all the viewers who are saying 'too slow', 'Too short', 'too.........blah, blah'. From my point of view, you have a gripping content and we all want more of it and more often. I am thinking...don't take it all as a criticism, but more of a 'I love this stuff and I want more and more often'!!!.....FEED MEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! Keep up the hard work and the entertaining commentaries to the fantastic footage!!! :-)

I don't know the collective noun for a group of travellers beyond "twats"...but they will all be together...even Olly (with leg in pot!)... details here  

If you have never been to this event..I would highly recommend it...its how I met one of the "twats"
