Riding With The Beast
What would you do if several months into a relationship you discovered that your girlfriend has turned into a Grizzly Bear? There can be few of us who have not at some point put that question to themselves and some who may actually have had the experience.
In the freezing winter of 1991 Mutch set off for Wales aboard a BMW R100RS with a bear cub on the pillion seat. The destination was a shivering ice bound caravan in the Wye Valley. It was the year the Wye froze! This trip was followed by a seminal run to Glastonbury followed by a two month voyage to Israel via France, Italy and Greece on a Harley-Davidson. In the course of this third trip the man and bear fall into the company of prophets and pilgrims on a dusty campsite overlooking the old city of Jerusalem. Surreal but true and highly entertaining.
