An aging nine stone hippy gives up his hard won career, family and home life to try and ride around the world on a Triumph motorbike in search of adventure and education and new experiences. At 45 Robbie Marshall had it all, or so it seemed. He'd been married, had two children, and built up a successful advertising agency. So what on earth made him trade his suit for leathers, his office for the saddle of a great British motorcycle, and his bulging appointments diary for an out of date world atlas? The prospect of a new challenge held such overwhelming appeal that he was prepared to risk it all - his hard won career, the trappings of wealth and the love of a good woman - for life on the road, and a lifestyle completely removed from anything he had known before. And so he shook hands with his business partner, kissed his girlfriend good bye and rode off into the unknown. Over the course of this double or nothing adventure he would come face to face with his own ignorance, enormous danger and wracking lonliness hand in hand with some of the best that human nature has to offer. All this and more comes his way, in a bid for knowledge and exploration of our fantastic planet.
But what price did he pay for this freedom and did life on the road provide the longed for dividends?
