Trailwinger F800 with metal cases on the BAM ?? This triggers immediately in my mind Rick, who started the trip with Terry and Cole and had to quit after a few dozen miles struggling offroad.... But Vikings are super duper tough...letīs wait and see...
I beg you a pardon sir..... but a few years ago Colebatch and Teebee ride the BAM with TonyP who also had metal boxes on his stock Dakar, add to that a very beautifull age and he managed to finish the trip .
You know the strength does not always stay in a phisical shape but more in an indomitable will.
Don't get me wrong i'm not an adept of metal boxes in fact i think i am exactly oposite but i also belive that the rider is much much more important than the mount.

In some other way i must admit that i'm an 800 owner so i'm also interested in how it performed the task even if i know from the begining that is not the right bike for the task.

Astonishing rr keep it going guys.
Adventure is not a cable channel.Freedom from the prison of pavement.
The beaten path is for beaten people.Pain is momentary.
Giving up is forever.Rest when you're dead.
