... and in other news..

Giant Loop posted about me and my trip on their blog today. The blog has all sorts of interesting stories about moto people doing moto things and the moto industry. Plus they make great stuff

giantloopmoto.blogspot.com

I also realized that most of my Picasa web albums were "private"
So here is a link to my Picasa album... now you can see the pics that I didn't think made the cut. You know.. if you feel like looking through 16,000 photos.

I was gonna be a smartass and point out that you should post up to
2048x2048px pics there so the pics don't count in at the MB limit,
but you seem to have figured that out already.

DAMNIT!

How are you liking the siskyou panniers now that you have a "few miles" on them? Do they stay in place? Do you find they flap at all? Are you still considering cutting a hole for the fuel fill, or have you found it easy enough to move the strap out of the way for fill ups? They look great and seem very practical for ease of access. It's interesting to see how your luggage system has developed since you started. Do you know the weight and amount of gear you started with to compare to what you have now?

I like them. They keep my stuff dry in the rain. They have good tie down points and from what I have found, they are very durable (at least 4 or 5 times I've dropped the bike on them). They stay in place well. I have not cut a hole in the main strap for access to the gas tank but I think I might soon. As far as weight of gear...
I'm carrying more spares and tools then when I started but way less cloths. I am definitely lighter than when I left California. Probably the same weight as when I left Minnesota.

Hey Noah, how goes the adventure? Just landed in London to start my own tour. Didn't bring my 690 tho. I can't figure how you are making it with yours, albeit not the original one. Does this mean you won't be dropping off the rear pegs when yer done? I'm heading your direction starting Sunday but may not get that far. Following here tho. One last thing; one of those windmills fell over and someone mentioned your name.....

Speaking of gear questions...

What are your thoughts on the KTM now that you've put some super serious miles on it? I'm selling my current ride and I'm on the prowl for my next bike. I have been considering the 690 with some road friendly modifications.

Really enjoying your updates and glad to see you're having fun.

Kindest regards,

-Mike

I was electrical so wasn't my fault.
Good luck on your adventure. Let me know what your RR link is when you post.

Hard bags break legs. Soft bags don't. I tip over a lot and soft bags never leak. My hard cans leaked.
