looks like I won't have to change my title after all

Well, I don't have my 690 back but it looks like I will be buying Fishfund's 690 that went from South Africa to London. Its got a few more miles then mine did but its got american registration so that will be way easier.

Getting excited to get back on the road!

Wow! I'm just in awe that this is the road your adventure is taking you down.

Great to hear it is taking a turn for the better.

The stories that that bike will be able to tell when you are done with it....... Maybe KTM will buy it back from you when you're done to hang on the lobby wall in Mattighofen.

Sounds like this adventure is going to pick up momentum once again!! Interested to hear what events have transpired behind the scene. Sounds like the trail on your bike may be cooling off, which really sucks. But I also have to say that it would be awesome for you to continue on with Fishfunds 690!

Patiently waiting to hear more.....

RTW with Noah

Glad to hear you are continuing your Adventure. Your spirit and refusal to let this Bump in the road get you down is inspiring. Can't wait for the ride of a Lifetime to continue. Thanks for letting us tag along.

Awesome!

Congrats! It sounds like things are working out!

Terrible luck on the original bike

When you get a chance to look back on this I am sure that your possitive attitude with help color this part of the adventure.

Stay safe on the road and enjoy the heck out of the rest of the trip!
