Why hasn't this RR got a FIVE Star Rating? I just voted it FIVE Stars. Wish I could vote it 10 Stars.

Noah, good to see you are using a lock. Try to loop it through the frame of the bike if possible. Putting the chain through the wheel is hunky dory, but thieves could just unbolt the wheel. Also, try to keep the chain off the ground. This way thieves can not use the ground for leverage with bolt cutters.
Keep on rolling buddy. Love the RR.

I usually try. This lock also has a 100 db alarm. I try to park where I am close to my open window where I am staying. I tend to wake up to ANYTHING outside. People around might not notice but if it scares them away, it has done the job.

Noah..





This is the most amazing trip report ever, and I'm shocked how many
friendly encounters you get!

I just got back from the Adriatic coastline (Zadar) to Osijek (far east
Croatia) and froze my but off! 45-46F most of the way. You'll have to
get a bit more south then here to get warm!



That's 44-73F for tommorow, 10.10.

Good job Dude. It's just that I don't think I can handle you losing another bike again!

Great thread

I keep reading... and I keep want more posts!

Great stuff!

This is my thing but I totally recommend a soccer game if you get a chance... Look for a "local darby" (i.e. rivalry game) and sit with the local supporters. I promise that you will enjoy your time, just take in a couple of bottle caps

Thanks for the updates Noah!

Where are you planning on snowboarding this year? What are your winter plans? Getting my season passes in order now. Hoping for a deep year in Tahoe and the West.

No idea who is headed to to Maroc, but I would contact Colebatch ... and read his Morocco ride report here:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ight=colebatch

It's one of the best RR's I've seen on the area. I'm sure tips and routes could be shared. Good luck, ride safe out there!

I hope it don't get too bored asking the same questions you already heard so often.

Keep the rubber down and take care man!

Thanks for the coffee and picture book! I almost had to use it today. I made it to the KTM factory, but since its a Friday, everyone was leaving at noon so I didn't get to tour. I do however get to say I have stood on holy ground.
