From my recent experiences...Ecuador. Maybe not the best...but at $1.25 for a 22 oz bottle the Pilsener brand is hard to beat at the end of a riding day.

Some more pics from my smugmug account if anyone is interested.

thanks guys :). Beer is present in our local store:) But my girlfried went to mountains so right now I having some sex with XRV engine replacement.
I was asking because have very interesting story how to kill engine using gasket set of one well known company. Right now writting e-mails and if they will not do anything with that - I think you'll see lot of hi-res photos what can be if there no oil in cylinder heads.

Did a 250km, mostly on road tour yesterday. Firstly around our flying area, then up to around 2500m to find some snow;

Great photos Andy and Joz.

Andy your scenery is spectacular. Mountains, balloons and motorcycles....WOW.

Joz, I really like your first shot with the road heading off to the horizon.

The AT is certainly the perfect bike for both areas

Cry AT for sale ????

I am thinking of selling my RD04' 92 AT
It still works but soon enough it's going to need a major service, really major.
Since this period I have no job and I am back to the university studying I can not afford to repair it. I could store it but there will be a few years before restoring it.
So what's your opinion?? ( I know that most of you will tell me to keep it but maybe there is a third option )

What do you mean by 'Major Service'?

Oh - and yes of course you should keep it

wheels, tyres, rims ???

Well, got some new tyres yesterday and my rear rim is full of the famous gold DID rot, its really bad !! its got to be replaced. its the original 21 year oldie so i guess its not a bad run.

I have 2 sets of wheels, roadies & knobbies, the bad wheel is my roadie wheel. Im thinking of putting a 3,5" rear rim on and running 150 rears. Also as my roadie front wheel has a broken spoke Im thinking of lacing up a 19" rim to my road front wheel and running a GS sized 110 front.

Anyone put a 19" front an AT ??, does it give any benefits on the tar ??

Any thoughts ideas etc

The only benefit would be slightyqucker steering and a larger choice of road tyres ,
But a slight reduction in off road ability.

Can't say about the AT, but i have a friend that put 17" wheels on his KTM640 Adventure (originaly 18" and 21") for road riding.
He can't stop talking about how dumb he is that it took him 6 years to do this change.
He's talking about better handling and quicker turns.
