Merry Christmas!

I was hoping to hear you made it by L’ Originale Alfredo di Roma Ristorante. I'd go back again just to eat there!

Merry Christmas Noah!!!

Loving the report, and thanks for the pics around Rome! Such a beautiful city, they bring back fond memories of my visit there. The artwork in the vatican is humbling to say the least.

Best wishes, and keep it coming!

Merry Christmas

Mr. Noah - Hope you have a Fantastic Christmas and an even better New Years Celebration!

My Mom just loves your pictures and I am curious how you learned about the keyhole. That is too cool. I love the little, secret things like that.

Cheers

Someone told me about it. I'm not sure. But yeah, it is one of the little things you remember. To think 300 something years ago someone designed it to do that... and it isn't a big deal now?

Thanks everyone! Merry Xmas!

I hope you are as well fed as I was! I got adopted by an amazing Greek family in Larissa Greece. I even got to play legos with the little ones

Noah: I am enjoying your blog, Question, I have a 2010 KTM 690 Enduro R and getting ready to do some long miles on it & see that you started out with aluminum panniers and because of the theft of your bike switched to soft panniers with a rear fuel tank. Now that you have used both which do you prefer & why. Bruce

I switched panniers before the theft. I do not want a broken leg. If I was only riding tarmac.. I would always ride with metal boxes. but offroad.... metal boxes break legs. No now i use soft luggage. I strip my bike every night unless i know it is secure. (like a locked garage)
