    Er,... it's on a runway?...
    ... there are no pedals on the bike?...
    ... it's on the M77 near Fenwick and you never really left Scotland?
    ... I give in, tell me...
    Seriously Mark; I take my hat off to you (not literally of course, since I rarely wear one), you're an extraordinary person; best of luck on the rest of your journey; I'm proud that you're from Scotland... the furthest I got on a bike was Durness - which, let's face it, is almost the end of the world - but nowhere near Tierra Del Fuego :o)

    ..if thats the sunset it looks like you're heading north??

    Anyway, just wanted to say you are a total inspiration, sounds like this desert leg is a tough one, hang in there, folks back home are with you. Loving the updates.

    Yep does look Northward bound :) that saddle looks slim! Is it a padded one?

    The saddle looks like a Selle SMP, not sure which model. I use a Selle SMP Strike TRK, it's the cheapest one, but still really comfortable. I've tried loads of saddles and these look really weird but there so comfy.

    Yes, the bike is heading north which should never happen on this expedition! The saddle is a Selle SMP Pro.
