    The Gentlman is British of Pakistani origin, which should not harm anyone !! He is talking about this trip for two years cause he is serious about it. First he had to order his bike while saving funds for it on a teacher’s salary !! Not being a kuwaiti also it is very difficult to get visas for other countries from here ,, also he strugeled for support without success ! plus he has to wait for the only time that he can go,,,,, during school summer holidays !! plus he is doing it alone !!!! He deserves big support & we will be there to see him off
