    OK not a Triumph, but you have to admire this lady, and my God those eyes of hers

    I'm now starting to watch her first trip, what a woman, she I think, docked at Harwich this morning, she's riding towards Heathrow now. I've always thought I did some touring and seen many countries over the last 40 years, I've got a bloody long way to go to get to even a quarter of what she'll see and do. Good luck to her, she's going at the right time too, winters on it's way here, so it will be great to follow her journey. Lets face it if we could all do this, we'd do it in a heartbeat. She's amazing in my book. Talking of books, I wonder if she'll write one when her trips done, that will be a read and a half.

    I'm sad too, so don't be too hard on yourself. On video 26 of her 1st trip. What a woman, and always smiling no matter what. Looking forward to video No2 of her trip that started yesterday.

    I really love her channel, such an enthusiastic vlogger, really easy to binge-watch her playlists! :)

    Noraly is a great character, gutsy as hell, charming as a Miss World, just a lovely person.

    Can't wait until she's properly on her way in Patagonia. I wonder if she'll meet up with Florent Pagny - French singer who has a permanent home there?

    And she did about 30,000 kms in about 8 months on her 410 cc Royal Enfield Himalayan - No it wasn't a 1200cc ditch pump. When she got back to Holland the local RE dealer asked for her bike "Basanti" in exchange for a brand new one of the same.

    She's my hero actually. I thought if she can do all those kms on a Royal Enfield, I think I can manage my little trip to the top of Norway on my VStrom.

    Think she's done a great ride so far and good to watch too.
    So good luck and safe riding Noraly on your next adventure.

    Thanks for sharing this video and the adventures of Noraly and "Itchy Boots", Bikerman! How delightful! But, on the other hand, just what I (don't) need. Another online thing to be addicted to. :p;) Nonetheless, I'm looking forward to following her adventures! :grinning:

    Awwww crap....I was not going to watch this as I've gotten really into a couple of other biker ladies on epic journeys in the past and the wife always takes the Mickey mouse....
    Now I've watched the first one I'm going to have to watch the rest and subscribe...
    Plus she had me when she said " welcome to my cabin "...

    I only ever attempted to repair a motorbike tyre once before in the 1980’s, and that resulted in more punctures than I had before I started.
    So full credit to Noraly for repairing her tyre singlehandedly. When I rode to Norway I did have a puncture repair kit and compressor with me but so grateful I didn’t need them.

    I have been following 'Itchy Boots' for ages now and just so impressed by the incredible journey Noraly has completed even now.
    Now she's going from deep south in south America to Alaska!!!
    What an incredible lady, oh and lovely eyes too!
    What she's doing now would have been unthinkable for a woman to do in a Male dominated world just a few years ago, now she's right up there and better than the best in my book.
