    Another pandemic motovlog. This is a 32 years old woman from the Netherlands named Noroly. She has been riding around the world for about 3 years on a Royal Enfield Himalaya. it's a 411 cc 4 stroke single cylinder motorcycle she bought in its' home country of India and proceeded to start exploring. She has a masters of Geochemistry degree, got rich working for an outfit in a country in Africa by finding gold... a LOT of it. Quit that job, started hiking/backpacking for 2 years. Someone turned her on to motorcycling and as they say, the rest is history. She calls her channel on You Tube "Itchy Boots". There are a lot of interesting episodes of 3 years I'm binge watching, they are all good. There are 3 of her having to bug out of Peru last March due to the pandemic and real lockdown in Peru. Better watching than Netflix. This episode is a highlights of her 60,000 kilometers on the road...so far.

    I been watching Itchy Boots for years. She just started a 3rd trip. Looks like she is staying in Europe for a while, at least until Covid becomes less of a thing.

    I greatly enjoy Noraly's videos. Her visit to Iceland showcased some stunning scenery. I also follow Kinga on her channel On Her Bike.

    Riding around all over the world on 2 wheels and is worried about COVID. That is stunningly retarded.

    That’s a pretty fancy looking Royal Enfield.

    She was forced to abandon her motorcycle in South America and fly home because of borders being closed by the pandemic and her visa expiring. Exactly what about not wanting to lose another motorcycle that way is retarded?

    Probably wherever she wanted.

    Hot rich chick moto touring- beautiful hotels, private haciendas, mansions etc.

    Gonzoso mototouring- let me show you how I hide my bike with my hammock camp behind municipal dumpsters and avoid hobos on bath salts!

    Next week we'll talk about bed bugs!

    One of many reasons I don't vlog.

    That chick has more balls than I will ever have. A single European woman traveling through Iran?

    Man, she will have stories to tell when she is old.

    Iranians are actually very kind people. It's their government that's full of stupid. Sometimes it's so bad that they can't figure out of they're Muslim or Persian. The correct answer is Persian.

    A V-max doesn't vibrate like a single-cylinder does.

    The Persians I’ve known are the warmest, genuinely kind and hospitable people you’d ever meet.

    Indeed. I went to high school with a bunch of kids whose fathers were NYC-based diplomats for the Shah. Great guys, and the daughters were smoking-hot. Their parties were epic. HH

    Actually most Iranians are Persians and are Muslim. But Persians are not Arabs which I think is what you wanted to say.

    Something like that. I was focusing on not saying Islam because that's a religion. Muslims are people who study Islam, so clearly I tried to hard here and failed.
