|Title:||one year on the road|
today it's exactly one year ago that i left switzerland. time goes fast!!!
last night i celebrated the event with a good bottle of wine and a can of cheap caviar.
for those who like statistics some information about that past year:
kilometers: 27'236 (average 74.5 km/day)
gasoline: ~1900 litres (average 5 litres/day)
tyres: 4 backtyres 2 fronttyres (average 6809/3434 km per tyre and 0.0109/0.0054 per day)
punctures: 0 (apart from one handmade puncture while changing an innertube)
falling off the bike: 10 (2 times tipping over while standing on uneven ground / 8 times on sand). (average 0.0273/day)

bribes: 3 times / ~15 usd (average 0.83 usd/country, 0.0005 usd/km, 0.26 usd/backtyre)
bottles of beer: ***no reliable data avaliable*** (***/day, ***/country, ***/km, ***/kids throwing stones)
the big question therefore goes unanswered: who consumes more liquid, the bike or the driver
