Edde's List of Useful Links...

In preparing for and while on this trip, the following people/organizations were extremely helpful

so I thought I'd list them for you as you may find them an excellent resource...

 

So here they are in no order of importance...

Thomson great organization to work for, but they might disagree if I accomplised anything resembling work there!

Main Line BMW especially Chris F., Joe S., and Nate K., for all their help in obtaining parts, straps, crating materials etc.

DeSimone BMW especially Tall Rob and RK...tremendous wrenches in their service group!

Royal Air Maroc and Vince Cabrol for helping me ship my bike!

Bushkin Hardware(5th & Porter) for all my hardware and locksmith needs!

Akar-Akar and Nicola L. for helping me get into Algeria, his invaluable information/contacts for the rest of my route! Nicola and Makthar's agency is bar-none the one you contact if you wish to have the genuine Sahara experience. Their oasis is amazing with orchards, roaming peacocks, gazelles, organic garden, etc.

Horizons Unlimited Grant Johnson and Susan Johnson are squarely responsible for the decline in recent worker productivity within the US and EU. Their website is a procrastinators paradise while also being a tremendous resource for those whose travels include obscurity.

Pennsylvania's Motorcycle Safety Program Introduces riders to motorcycling and helps experienced riders as well. I teach during the summer and they need more instructrors if you're interested!
