Mt Everest by Harley

Have a look at this YouTube guy attempting to get from Delhi to Mt Everest on a rented Harley. I came across the footage yesterday evening. From what I can gather he hasn't been to India before let alone ridden in it.
He's going to need a bit of luck but the ride will be interesting

I'm not at all sure the guy knew much about Mt Everest at all. Some of the stuff this fella was doing had me seriously worried for his safety.:)

A modern day Maurice Wilson ?


I was not aware of Maurice Wilson before your comment.

Gosh, Wilson's life makes an interesting story... I am sure the "Million Dollar Bogan" on the Harley has an interesting story to tell also... :D

Thanks for an old-favourite ear worm! :)

My brain should be able to provide several more lines, but I think I'll have to cheat and listen to it.

Hope his parents don't have to take him home on a bus

A different look at Harley Davidson riding by the same guy!





I found this vlog to be a very interesting contrast to the Everest ride...

Was that his ride to Cape York, NE Australia? Completely nuts on a bike like that, too many unmade roads!
His latest venture is in Thailand I believe. At least he gives these rides a good go.

Indeed that was the trip in the video.

In the India / Everest video, he comes across as rather a desperado, a bit "down and out" but in fact he seems to be a very wealthy guy who likes an extreme Harley related challenge or three!

Interesting guy, lots of Aussie toughness about him, methinks.

Sounds like an unrealistic cashed up 'bogan'. At the most he can reach everest base camp on the north side but that's via Lhasa in Tibet and not from Kathmandu.
