Thanks boeta. I like the blue dakar theme. Put new tyres since that pic was taken in Jan. Now have a Mitas E-07 on the rear. That front scorpion isnt nice in mud and sand and will be replaced by a T-63.

Many happy trails. I do about 20 000 km on each bike a year and ride every day, all weather. Even use the bikes for work and get paid per km. :) Caging gives me road rage.

You'll spend a few more bucks on MSR bottles before too long. Make sure you put a strap on each bottle cage and thread it up through the slot in the canister bottle cap then back down to the cage to hold the canisters in place; otherwise they'll go bye bye next time you hit some rough stuff!

You should roll that beauty onto a ship that's headed west and come ride the Rockies! While Colorado's not known for its Portuguese food, I do a pretty good job in the kitchen replicating Fall River (Azorean-influenced) style "Portagee" cuisine and keep a stash of chourico and other ingredients needed. I know a few of us fellow 950/990 riders would love to show you around

Oh yes.

It would have effectively closed all vehicular rights of way, so the only way to see the stones would be to park in their car park (and pay), get on their sodding great land train (which would have run down the byway in the picture), view the stones for a few minutes then come back and exit through the gift shop.

Luckily the Trail Riders Fellowship and the Druids forced a public inquiry (which found in our favour). Wiltshire Council could have ignored the findings of the PI, but the threat of legal action from the TRF was too much for them.

So the threat to the lanes was lifted.

OI think they are still planning on building the vistor centre though...so if you want to actually see the stones (rather than 'experience' them), best get over here quick.

That's a very good idea and i would love to do it
But not this year, so far it has been a very hard year in terms of portuguese economy
But i will keep in mind this suggestion

Last year i went twice to the mainland (Portugal) and did the Portugal de Les a Les and the N2.
Had to send the motorcycle by boat and had to travel by airplane. So, some money was spent...

Portugal of Les a Les is a touring event where we travel Portugal from the very top to the very bottom, from north to south, by traditional roads and by the typical and traditional villages, cities and other locations of Portugal.
It's an opportunity to know Portugal.
Take a look at the pictures andi video of this event: http://www.motoazores.com/index.php/...-de-les-a-les/

The N2 is another touring event that takes us from north to south of Portugal by only one road, the National Road 2 (N2), that is the most old road of Portugal, very used in other times (before highways).
It was an other opportunity to know a little more of Portugal.
Take a look at the pictures andi video of this event: http://www.motoazores.com/index.php/...longa-estrada/

These two events were performed with the KTM ADV

Political Correctness, Multiculti liberalism and disposable culture are destroying the world. Its sickening. Soon everywhere will look as plastic as many parts of the USA, where every motel room looks the same, every street has same chain fast food restuarants and advertising, and you can travel all day and swear you ended up in the same place.

Now its global. Go to any country, same franchises, same music on the radio, ame TV shows, same plastic garbage. Will be a sad day when european culture disappears, to be replaced by 'do you want to supersize your McStonehenge burger?'

So can I.

Still... what's better than a photo of an Adventure? TWO ADVENTURES!

You can barely see the cables that I made up,they are attached to the bottle cages . The caps have to be screwed off in order to get the bottle out.
