My GREEN CARD insurance arrived from Istanbul, first port of call was to my local Traffic Police to ask them to check over all my vehicle paperwork, everything was OK so it was off to the Police Chief next to double check everything, again all was OK.


Riding back home we spotted a nice Aprilla Pegaso 650 parked up, I stopped to have a look and Theo turned up almost immediately with a new clutch cable for it, I lent him my tools to fit the cable then he was straight off to the mechanics to check the Pegaso over, his brother Korhan has just bought it today, this means our little Dalaman bike club just became one bike larger. I quickly asked Theo to read through all the paperwork before he left, so now it’s been triple checked, call me paranoid, but when all your paperwork is in a foreign language you just never know!!

We have decided to go early now, why wait, we shall leave at first light in the morning now, our first destination is TROY, thanks to everyone for your encouragement and well wishes, I will update this blog from Internet cafes en-route.

    • Hi John,

      Cheers for that mate, writing and posting photos on a computer that works in a forign language will only add to the adventure lol..



  2. Oh, and don’t forgot a USB cable or a card reader so you can post some photos!

    • Yes…I tried out the card reader again a couple of hours ago, it makes uploading photos that much easier….a God send.

    All the best,

    Dickyb and Juliet
