Thanks - truly awesome bike so far. I've ridden a lot of different bikes over the years, and I'd describe the Adventure as the most confidence inspiring of the lot. Completely at home on the gravel and mud at speed, and with the little bit of fooling around I did it was not as heavy feeling as I thought it would be, and it was very comfortable to ride standing. Even through patches of snow and ice I never got in trouble. And the hp really helps on the highway and out of corners. I can see riding this for a long time!

Great job on the route map...that's pretty time consuming work. I'm going to start trying to get a week off at that time now. I might try some short o/n trips at the start of the summer too, get my gear tested out. I have the side panniers for the KTM, plus a custom rear case I put together for delicate (expensive) camera gear that worked out well on the XRR.
