Overland To Vietnam

I am appalled by the number of people, especially children under 5, that die of preventable diseases due to lack of safe water or sanitation. WaterAid works in 17 countries providing water, sanitation and hygiene education to some of the world's poorest people. I will visit one of their projects on my journey. Please take a few minutes to look at their website and see the excellent work they do.

Overland To India. In the autumn of 2008, author Gordon May travelled from the UK to the Royal Enfield factory in Chennai, India, on a 1953 500 Bullet. The website contains details of many improvements and modificatuions made to the bike in prepartaion for the journey plus details of his book, Overland To India.

Overland To Egypt. Gordon's next journey was from the UK to Egypt and back on a 1952 BSA D1 Bantam, taking in Tunisia, Libya, Jordan and Syria en route. The website contains details of many improvements and modifications made to the bike in prepartaion for the ride and information on ordering the book, Overland To Egypt.

The AJS & Matchless Owners Club. The club caters for individuals and families who have an interest in either AJS or Matchless motorcycles. It now has more than 3,600 members worldwide and produces a monthly magazine,The Jampot.

Judith Coyle Copywriting. PR & Editorial. Judith has twelve years experience of writing and editing copy for motorcycling-related books, magazines and websites.

Moving the Matchless around to have work done to it is made easy using a Motolug collapsible trailer. Superbly designed and constructed to a high standard in the UK, the Motolug S7 folds away into the boot of my car or garage when not in use.

A huge amount of research has gone into compiling the Matchless W.D. Spare Parts List Database. The website allows you to easily search all War Department contracts for Matchless motorcycle spare parts.

Matchless Clueless is a great enthusiasts website, with photographs of the hosts two G3Ls and details of their restoration. It also has numerous spare parts books and workshop manuals that you can download for free.

Horizons Unlimited. A website dedicated to the overland motorcycle traveller and packed full of useful information. The forum, The Hubb, offers great support to travellers.

Joining the Institute of Advanced Motorists is a great way to meet other bikers and learn some essential life saving riding skills. Advanced motorists generally get cheaper insurance too!
