Ed,

Good Job on the RR. Keep up the pics coming. How many miles are you avg. per day? Any problems finding fuel? What octane gas have you been using? Does it matter on the GS? Travel Safe my friend

Mark

Great rr. I have been having fun reading your rr the last few days and are looking forward to more.
I am writing down a lot of the places you are going since i hope to do south america i few years.

If you make it to denmark next year you are more than welcome to come and stay and i could play your guide for a while. Lots to see and do. It looks like we have many of the same ideas how life should be.... Dirt biking, kayak, beer and travel...not tequila...

I live in odense in denmark. About a mile from the tourist spots like the house of H.C.Andersen and a really great bar with more than a 100 different beers from denmark and europe.

Also i have a workshop to fix the bike and my best friend is a bmw mechanic.

So let me know.. And have fun in your travels.

Great RR, just spent the last few days catching up and enjoying the nice photos :).

when you come to Europe, don't miss visiting Portugal, it's a small country but you wont regret (even more since you're such an wine buff). You'll have a place to stay, jut let me know!

Well, most people don't go that far because the road is so narrow and there are so many people walking on the road.
The surface of the road is made from uneven rocks. Perfect for the GS. But not if I had to stop as it is hard to catch it from falling over because it is so heavy.
WATCH THIS VIDEO. CLICK ON THE PICTURE BELOW TO SEE IT. IT WAS CRAZY FUN AND IT WAS TOUGHER THAN IT LOOKED
I am just glad that everyone got out of my way

Great Video Ed and love the RR I will follow you to the end. Keep the rubber side down.

when you have a chance go dive into some Cenotes (water wells), and you also have Tulum, Chichen Itza, and many other wonderful places...

Don't remember exactly where, but not too far from Cancun is a resort with an underground river, we floated down it. Pretty awesome.

Tulum is great but I had a better time at the Coba ruins. More historical than pretty. Get one of the guides at the entrance. Maybe you can still climb Nohoch Mul.

And Merry Xmas from a lurker.

Enjoy your stay at the Yucatan
Have dove in few of those cave and they are amazing
If you have time visit Cozumel and plaza de Carmen
Cancun is nice but to much tourist and expensive
There are many places to see, look like you already found many site
Ride safe and Merry Christmas
