Croesus Contempt for Death trip 2009
World on 70 year old motorcycles
Now more ambitious, crazy and
risky than ever! We going out there again, putting
McGregor and Boorman to shame, those girlie-men who did
such a rough trip driving from London to New York on new
BMW GS bikes and with massive support. Unlike McGregor
and Boorman we ride our usual two 1937 Nimbuses with
sidecars, and there’s minimal support along the way. We
also ride twice their distance, don’t call it quits when
reaching The Big Apple, but continue all the way around
In 2006 we
took the quick trip from Oslo to Singapore. This time
we’ll ride from Norway through Siberia to Alaska, then
down through North and South America. A boat will take
us to South Africa from where we’ll ride up to Europe.
Time of departure is April 2009.
The first leg alone will be
longer than the trip to Singapore and the full distance
will be about 70,000 kilometres (44,000 miles). Good
thing the bikes are not even older than 70 years...

This homepage is set up to
make the trip as entertaining for the readers as humanly
possible. We will update the weblog with text and
pictures both during our preparations and the trip
itself. A lot more time will be used for this than we
used on the 2006 trip, so it will be an adventure not
only for us, but for the readers as well.
