Fun, I looked at those as well but am committed to go to Mongolia in August for the scenery

I'm not sure at this point what my next goal will be, but probably spring '11 before I can drum up the $$ for another one, Heroes looks fun. Planning some other riding this fall which might include a run to SoCal to store the bikes for a segmented long'ish term run to SA.

Silverstone from Jasper is headed to Tunisia too do you know him?
