Anyone here around in the 80's

Just wondering if anyone here remembers the young couple who, in the mid 80's, gave up their careers to travel around the world on their bike.

I remember that occassionally Bike magazine would have a feature all about them every few months or so.

They had some pretty hair raising adventures in some parts of the world, including being shot at in South America.

The last feature I remember in Bike showed them dismantling their CX500 to get it across a river in a little boat, in which they had to do about 5 journeys to get it all over.

It all suddenly went quiet and no one heard from them again, so I was wondering if anyone here can remember them, and possibly know what happened to them.

I've been searching but can't find a thing.

Cheers in advance.

That's great


I searched but came up with nothing.

They came up in conversation recently when I was talking about Long way down with someone and I couldn't even remember their names.

Glad they're OK.

I wonder how many other unsung two wheeled heroes there are out there at the moment.
