Robert Fulton's legendary journey began in 1932 when he set out on his Douglas twin motorcycle for an eighteen-month odyssey that included Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, India, Sumatra, Malaysia, Siam, Indonesia, China, and Japan -- challenging destinations that, even today, would give pause to the most world-weary traveller. His customised bike had an extra large fuel tank, a secret hiding place for his .32 revolver, and enough room in his luggage for a motion-picture camera and 40,000 feet of film. His entertaining, detailed story tells of falling from a bridge in Turkey, being held up by hundreds of robbers in Waziristan, put in jail as a smuggler in Indonesia, and being escorted across Japan by 33 motorcycles. You will discover a fascinating part of our world that's been lost forever.
