New guy here. Been riding for for many decades on several different dirtbikes and then street bikes of mostly Japanese and American makes. I haven't gotten my DS bike yet. Had HDs for many years and just getting into this stuff. I'm wanting a KLR and it looks like you are going to be testing it way better than I would. I'm still working on a project out of the US for awhile longer. I would say this looks like an ambitious journey. I've cruised and toured two up on a big bike. I'm really interested to see how your bike does with two people and baggage.
Ride safe there folks.
