Noah in UK at Rally-Raid HQ

We have had the pleasure of one of ADV Rider's US inmates,Noah from Montana visiting us on an unplanned stopover on his RTW trip.He had his 690 stolen in Ireland,and after a few days he managed to get a lift on the back of a bike to Rally-Raid HQ in the UK.We actually had a US plated KTM 690 which was left by Luke Swab,aka Fishfund,from his trip last year.So we are in the process of making it up to scratch for Noah to carry on his trip with.
He has had a great deal of support from bikers here in the UK & Ireland after his unfortunate start to his European leg of his trip,but we hope we can help him on his way.
It just goes to show what a world-wide phenomena that ADV Rider is,with contacts all over the world.
Noah has been pretty busy fabricating an alloy tool tray to go in place of the airbox,as Fishfunds old KTM 690 has a Uni-Filter fitted.
It is looking pretty good now,not bad metalwork for an electrician!!
He has also added our Rear Fuel Tank & Soft Luggage Frames to complete the set-up.
He has had good news from his brother in USA,the new licence documents are on their way so he can carry on with his trip.
