Very impressed with your mindset and overall outlook on things. Have fun..
Mechanical issues are fun for me also. Kindof. I'm learning more about this bike then I ever thought possible. To the point were I don't trust most motorcycle mechanics.

Beside the fact that woman love a good beard... I've also found it is quite useful.

1. Keeps food from hitting my shirt when I miss my mouth.
2. keeps mosquito from getting my neck.
3. Keeps the neck warm on a cold ride.
4. Keeps the face/neck warm while snowboarding.
5. In the "stans" people think you are Muslim. (protects my neck)
6. Keeps the dust from entering your helmet through the bottom. My visor gets way more dirty on the inside with out the beard.

I am just an average guy working to support his young family. I will probably never even come close to experiencing the things you are doing. However I will gladly follow your story.

Thank you again and keep living it man!!
Its all an adventure man. Thanks for following.

Sometimes in life when you reach a crossroads, flipping a coin to decide which path may not be a bad idea, if you don't agree with what the coin says, just keep flipping it till you do...

Ride safe Noah...
Thanks.. I have more videos coming. Keep rubbing it in about the dry N.W. I had some crazy rain yesterday... all day.

Looking forward to more!

Doesn't matter what bike you own. If you are traveling on it.. you will learn to work on it... or have very deep pockets.

Sink or swim.

I'm on Sakhalin right now. In a bikers club in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. I'm waiting for my motor to cool down so I can do a valve check. I also have to install some blinkers that came off somewhere in Mongolia.. or Siberia.. I don't remember. I think the next ferry to Japan is on the 10th.

Bravo!

Noah, fantastic ride report. I have no idea how I missed your thread until now but I can't tell you how impressed I am across the board. You are quite the gentleman of character and it shines throughout your journey. Keep up the good work and I hope you keep the party rolling for a couple more years. Oh, and you're a dick for making me ponder trading in my trusty f800 for a tasty ktm.

Having heard so many tales about the good old days of motorcycling in the 50's and 60's I just shake my head and tell them you would of had to been there. If you did a 100 miles without something happening , you were indeed lucky. The bikes of today far out pace the bikes of yesterday. And yet, still today, if you travel lots, be it around the world or just in one country, you best know your bike pretty well.
Great report Noah and look forward to checking for updates every day.

I met Noah in a gas station last year while heading north to Alaska (he was heading south) And after a conversation over a typical gas station lunch and hearing about his trip, I got home, sold my KLR bought a 690.

Thx Noah! :)
