Well my Husaberg wasnt back from South America when I left on this trip. I would need time to prep it (a lot of time) and I didnt know then if it would be up to this kind of trip.

The BMW was ready, and its a tried and tested machine for this kind of trip. Its economical, reliable, stable, comfortable and has done the job for me countless times in the past.

Introductions ... Part 3

A few other riding buddies showed interest, and one of them, Rod, whom I will introduce later, suggested the idea of bringing an American riding buddy of his along - Rick. Rick was a veteran of the TAT and Continental Divide Trails and so before long Rick was applying for visas, prepping his bike and having it shipped over to England for the start of the ride.

There would be three of us attempting to ride the whole trail ... Myself, Terry and Rick. Others would join us later for stages of the trip, but three of us planned to ride it from start to finish:



Rick was on a DR650, which had had the stock suspension looked over, and a steering damper. For luggage, he had a lot ... Dirt bags at the sides, a Giant Loop tank bag, some additions front tank bags and a large bag on the back. It looked a little top heavy to me, but we'll see how it goes.

Six pages after only the introduction. This is going to be a great winter entertainment.

Thanks, Walter.

I see Terry's bike is using Mitas E09 tires.

How did they worked? Mileage compared to yours?

I use the Mitas myself and they do the job, but I'm not sure those would be the ones I'd choose for a muddy trip like this could be expected to be.
