It’s been a long time since I have been riding. Actually I’ve been unwell. I managed to get in short ride around my local peninsula to charge the battery and I was delighted with the easy riding roads that weave between green farms.

I realized I should have a been exploring this area on a small bike like a Honda Cub. Also working on another of my best roads maps but with a focus on good local eateries.

2022 I had so many plans. Riding in USA and Canada then Pakistan. I had decided to get a new car and that would be the exciting Toyota GR86. But I had a huge set back… I am not good at getting the balance right with personal sharing on my blog but here goes:

In April I was diagnosed with glandual cancer. Yes that is about as serious as it gets.

Seeking treatment in Japan has not really gone to plan, I am now rushing home to Australia.

I will tackle this cancer with the same determination I have applied to all the solo ADV rides that I have set off on and figuratively speaking I’ve loaded my GPS with a route for ‘cancer free’ future and I’m going to try my best to get there.

    Hi Warren, I have been reading your website the last couple of years with great interest. I had travelled quite a lot in Asia over the last 10 years before the pandemic, riding small motorbikes in a lot of different places. I am off to Cambodia tomorrow for 4 weeks, followed by North Vietnam for 4 weeks, where my father will join me.
    I had been wondering if you had any travel planned, now that international travel is starting up again. Terrible to hear about your cancer. Good luck in you treatment and recovery, and well done for producing this excellent blog / website. – Dale, Tasmania

    • Thanks very much Dale for your support and kind words. Have a great ride in Cambodia and Vietnam.

      I am riding virtually via other rider blogs and books this year. I will try post a little new content to the blog occasionally 🙂
