I've enjoyed your ride and report very much! I would like to commend you for your ability to strike out on your own! That Sir takes Balls! Your choice of ride, is brave and smart. I also would like, if you would be so kind as to post in some way the equipment that you must have and the crap (bad or not needed) you took. Be specific brands and models. None of us here are shy! I also would be interested to hear just how far you stretched your fuel. And if that was a issue of risk? Around here (lower 48) we don't worry to much about fuel. I for one ride a Tenere and can't say I've ever much past 200miles, without being nervous.
What are you planning next?
