How many miles have you done, how much was off road, how often did you clean it and what colour are your socks ?

Have you tried the "film" cleaning trick? You know, where you run the piece of 35mm film (who's got that anymore?) or the motion pro thingy inside the fork wiper. Good luck and toss us a pic now and then.

at least you are making up for the days you missed at the gym! We know from previous posts that you are a hunk and riding a Super Tenere in deep sand should help maintain your figure.

Look forward to hearing the full story... going to Mex later in the year and was considering Baja and then ferry from La Paz...

Yeah, used a 4gig memory card. It now seems worse.

Ride is going great so fun in the desert. Well except the sand part. All that weight people say you don´t notice.....
you do in the sand. It´s truley a Beast and not much fun to pick up. Other than the fork seal it´s doing great.
I´m trying to break it and can¨t. This keyboard is so weird.

In Loerto today. Snorkeled in Cabo yesterday.

Ran into hondavstheworld.com Sean Dillion today in Loreto. He shipped a Honda cub 90 from Ireland.
Been to the Arctic Circle and working his way to Argentina. That takes the wind out of your sail on
"What's the the best ADV bike" He has had it on some of the same off road we have done. Amazing.

Wish I could post some pics. I guess I'll have do do a ride report later.
