sorry to hear thats crap i went up the gammon and flinders recentally and did some of the same travels
... not as many as you yet tho
.... but you have motivated me to get out there more often on my klr.. i wish you all the best with your leg.. mate you're an adventure rider i know your not going to take not adv riding again as an option, you will be drawn to getting out there again by peers and internal motivation.. remeber.... what does not kill you makes you stronger!!!!! (mentally and physically) you will be ready to challenge anything soon.. anyway enough of me telling you what you allready know...
can you give me a tip on you packing methods on your (late) 800... i have a KLR 650 and pack so much more than you... where do you put it all tent, sleeping bag, sleeping mat, clothes, food, tool kit, maps, air compressor, spare tubes, tyre levers, msr cooker and billy etc, etc you seem to have so little on the bike during your travels HOW?...
