World’s Most Traveled Motorcycle
I followed a link from Andy the Hobotraveler’s blog entitled World’s Most Extreme Travelers and was so impressed by what I found that I felt the need to also write about it.
Peter and Kay Forwood are close to finishing a 12 year complete journey around the world on the back of a 1994 model Electraglide Classic, 1340cc Harley Davidson motorcycle. What countries did they go to?
All of them.
I often jest that the reasons that I am traveling the world is just so when people ask me what countries I have been to I can respond with a simple “All of them.” This is a funny little joke to me, but the Forwoods have really done so.
They have traveled through 191 of the recognized 193 countries on planet earth. But what is most significant is that they did not do so as tourists on tour – they did so with their own vehicle, going their own way, and using their own wit. This is impressive. Anybody can travel the world as a tourist, this is easy, but it takes a severely dedicated and capable person to travel the world on their own Path for so long.
They are about to accomplish a great goal, and when they do Wade from Vagabond Journey.com will bow down to these blazers of the traveler’s trail.

Oh yeah, it comes as no surprise that I highly suspect them to be Australians.
