Glad to hear that your bike got recovered...

Looks like your spare sprockets are still in the skid plate...

Having 2 690s... now that is a problem...

Hi Noah,
Spent till 2am last night reading your RR. Wish I was going with you...

If you find yourself near Berlin in September, I can offer you a place to stay. And help with your bike as I was a bike wrench for 17 years.

Also, if you are still in Europe near the end of September, you should go watch the ISDE, It is in Germany this year and the Motocross Des Nations is in Belgium in October.

Dave

WOW. Awesome Noah!!!!!

Everybody contribute to the Official ADV bike!!! Just a thought! Find somewhere to store it and let folks "rent" it You get some money out of the deal to help offset the new bike, and we get something to ride with some pedigree

That's Fantastic News!!

WOW NOAH! You must be beaming!! I'm thrilled that things have worked out for you. The best part is that any future problems will now feel like a breeze to solve.
Two 690's, a bunch of new friends, an amazing chapter for your book and 1000's of hits on your RR = I think you've come out ON TOP!

I was thinking of something this. It would be nice to have a bike in Europe... it would be a great excuse to come back to visit all the new friends I've made.

nice!

Noah - awesome that your ride was found. I'm sure there is an amazing story behind its recovery… hope to hear it someday. Good luck in your next phase of your journey no matter which bike you ride. As Lance A. wrote, "It isn't the bike."

Fishfund - if you are reading here… OUCH! What happened? I loved your Africa RR I came across when researching bikes. Get well!

BC
