Fuel Inspirational Tuesdays - "One Man Caravan" Around the world by motorbike in 1932

In 1932, 23-year-old Robert Fulton Jr. set off on a 40,000-mile solo motorcycle trek from London to Japan. His incredible footage of the journey is one of a selection of films being shown at The Adventure Travel Film Festival (17-20 Aug). It captures the Middle East still under British rule, India under the Raj and pre-communist China, all before the days of telephones, proper infrastructure or mass tourism .
