NEXT UPDATE 14TH AUGUST 2010……….
I’m emailing you on Nick’s behalf and hope to call you next week.
Just to update you Nick has now arrived in Canada and is heading for Alaska. He is about to ride from Pruhdoe Bay to Ushuaia along the Pan American highway again….it is a solo journey this time and an attempt at the record.
When he gets back he will be taking two groups of riders to Morocco to the edge of the Sahara. Group one includes the boss of Carole Nash and the boss of UK Yamaha! Group two – which follows immediately the first lot have gone home – is a group of riders who have won a competition set up by Shell who are one of Nick’s main sponsors now.
This group includes a journalist and a publicist and will be published in Motorrad and filmed for Shell.
Suddenly – after 28 years! – the level of representation and exposure has taken off. He has been given 14 pages in Motorrad magazine which is amazing as it has a massive circulation. We have also just had confirmation of our space at the NEC motorcycle show in November/December. It is very good indeed as we are right next door to the main Yamaha stand and very well placed.
I need to discuss with you about a trailer – again! As we are returning to South America in the Spring of 2011 to do another Pan American tour we left the 3 bike trailer there. Shipping costs are very high and trailers out there are appallingly made! You would be horrified! So again I am short one 3 bike trailer.
Can I call you to discuss a trailer to take 3 bikes – this time we will be crossing the Atlas mountains about 5 times. In addition we will be driving 3 bikes down to Africa across Europe. The last trailer did the whole length of Ruta 40 in Argentina and crossed the Andes several times rescuing fallen bikes! Our Argentinian guide is using it again this week to bring back the last bike that crashed in northern Argentina. We were very pleased with the trailer indeed
Meantime have a nice weekend and we will speak soon
