War on two wheels
If social media can be believed, the evidence is that police are actively enforcing the section of the law that targets cyclists and ignoring the only provision that will truly keep bike riders safe — the one-metre distance required when passing a cyclist. Roads minister Duncan Gay can easily respond to these social media criticisms by releasing the figures on the number of cyclists and motorists fined under the new laws.
Meanwhile, Sydney continues to suffer under traffic jams of Duncanian proportions. A bingle on the Harbour Bridge recently resulted in queues stretching back a whopping 12km. There was much antagonism on social media as commuters in buses complained that single-occupant cars were filling the transit lane, so even public transport could not get through.
The only people moving were pedestrians and In transport-nirvana, once the work is complete, everyone will zip into the city at top speed! Very interesting detailed account of an interesting motorcyclist. Makes you want to explore. This is very travel centric. I would not have minded some more accounts of his Motorcycling, but all in all an excellent read. Great buy, it was what I expected. This story is an epic adventure. Something of dreams and fantasies.
Very readable, interesting with lots of great pictures. One person found this helpful. Awsome, everything better than expected.

For what a need, I like it. Great photography, contents most disappointing. Just not very well written and lacks detail on visiting so many countries. Book was put together in a hurry to just earn some money. Helge is one of those amazing people who can precisely capture a moment on film - whether it's a remarkable shot like that of Olga in a tiny canoe, or his own profile, snapped with one hand as he rides along in the desert, he puts us right there with him.
He's a remarkable man, who spends a goodly amount of time leading groups of people on motorcycle tours all over the world. If we Seattle-ites are lucky, he'll then come back and put on a slide show presentation a local BMW shop. He suffered through truly horrid conditions; multiple feet of snow, scorching hot sun, abysmally wet days and nights Viewing the photographs, and reading the accompanying texts, the reader is indeed present during Helge's travels.
We see unspoken details of people's lives in countries we may never travel to ourselves, the splendor of some of the world's best scenery, and more. I recommend this book highly to anyone who appreciates fine photography, travelogues, or motorcycles.

They guided transport through the Falaise Gap, buzzed around after the D-Day landings, slogged through mud and traversed rivers in Italy. The distinctive profile of Canadian DRs—riding upright at high speed, seated on the gas tank and risking disciplinary action —earned them a nickname: Dispatch riders had particularly dangerous jobs—delivering information the enemy was eager to seize or destroy.
DRs travelled unmarked roads, sometimes under fire or strafing, often in the dark without headlights, which minimized sniper risk, but increased collisions. They escorted convoys, zipping up and down the line and between vehicles.
