RAW LISTENER QUESTIONS:

RAW Listener: John Chellew
Question: I was just wondering what everyone wears on their multi climate long distance touring i.e. Jacket, pants, gloves, boots, helmets, base/mid layers, heated gear etc. (inc brand).

RAW Listener: Chris Hall
Question: It seems that some travelers, moto or otherwise, love to criticise another's adventure. Love to hear from the group on what they think of "adventure snobbery" if you like.

RAW Listener: David Morieson
Question: What are your thoughts on Automatic [transmission] motorcycles [in the adventure and sport market]?

RAW Listener: Brian Halbleib
Question: This year I am riding down into Mexico. I don’t speak Spanish very well beyond some basics and I was curious how you all have handled the language barrier in foreign countries. I have heard the Point It book is a useful tool. Any other tips for travel into Mexico would be welcome and appreciated. 

RAW Listener: Dave Hawkins
Question: What do you make of 'micro-adventures' and other short trips into the outdoors? It's not the same as overlanding, but it's a great way to fit adventure into your normal routine and to learn the ropes. For me it's a great way to get more people out there! But would love to know what seasoned overlanders make of it.

RAW Listener: Rocky Mountain Adventure Bike Touring Company (Alan) 
Question: If BMW didn't make motorcycles (or in the Case of GF Kawasaki/KLR) what would you all be riding, and it doesnt have to be new!!
