Carry on with the 2008, that's ready by the look of it. I'm sure one of us here in Ireland can look after the 2010 for you. Plus you just don't know what shite the scum pulled on it.

Thats the plan right now. I just got done finalizing documentation for the 2008 and it would take a while to switch back to the 2010. The plan is to go up to Scotland some and figure out what to do with the 2010 in the next week.

Great news on the recovery. Might be a good idea to keep it in storage until your trip is complete. Just in case.

Ohhh & BTW, have you purchased insurance yet?

The luck of the Irish?!

Glad to hear the bike was found. I am amazed at the amount of great folks in Ireland who jumped on the cause to support you in a million ways (on top of all the advfolks here). No surprise the bike was recovered.

This was possibly the most interesting part of your trip so far. Great stories for future generations to hear from you when you are older.

Enjoy Scotland. Great place too.

YK

This story just gets better and better! Amazing that they got the bike back, even if it sounds like someony paid for it. Hope this does not trigger a bike hijacking business similar to the piratry near Somalia!

Ireland is quite small however, so that might have contributet significantly to the recovery - "loosing" the bike in the US or another big state would have been much worse! And now you even have a spare bike.

Enjoy your trip!

+1. It is always good to have a contingency plan should any other bike troubles develop down the road. But really, what else could go wrong? Your just going for a quick spin around the block..... errr, or the world that is....

good news

Noah,
Whew, now I don't have to feel guilty about not sending you any money yet.
By the way, leaves are starting to change on the North Shore.

Awesome

Dude, I've been watching this thread like a hawk daily, hoping to see a "recovered" post. Finally! Knew it would happen, as we all did

That is called the "Power of Positive Thinking", and you Sir, are the perfect example of such.

Was jealous of your adventure before, now how do you possibly root for a fellow with TWO 690 Enduros?

Git on your steed and ride! And then write, and then Ride some more! And take pictures, then type it out...and then ride again! Best of luck to you, a legion of ADV riders are with you!
