|Just kidding--my favorite bike is my Thorn Nomad tourer. Is this a custom bike or an eXp? Very cool.

|Custom with eXp philosophy...
meaning-it's based off the eXp design but is being built as custom because of what I'll be doing with it(very heavy loads in my panniers with a trailer).
My wife is getting a Nomad after we rob a few more banks to pay for mine. ;-)
|Sounds like some serious touring||Dave Hickey|

|I'm reading Barbara Savage's book "Miles from Nowhere"
It's an excellent read for anyone interested in long distance touring. Barbara and here husband left California in the late 70's on an around the world venture. Sadly, she died in a cycling accident as the book was being printed.
