"And the last point, when I set off on my journey I was really focussed on reliability as most people wisely have a fear of breaking down in the middle of nowhere. After a couple of continents and inevitable small issues on all the bikes I rode and all the bikes that rode with us, I became much less fearful of potentially breaking down. They seemed to happen to everyone, no matter what people rode and most times were pretty easily fixed. Initially we are looking for a bike to cover up all our fears and inadequacies, usually the bike doesn't get any better we just overcome our fears, become a little better mechanics and learn to rely on ourselves more."
