Nice shot of Al, frustrated, with his rear wheel off the bike. Looking forward to making my own video in about 6 months.

haha, nice catch Rob! My center stand was fucked up so I just laid the bike on it's side to pull the rear wheel and fix a flat.. It was pretty quick work actually but plenty of people stopped and took pictures of me and my beached whale of a bike.. I think a few of the paparazzi bastards actually offered to help if needed though..



I'm looking into options to make the bike a bit more off road worthy for 2013.. Mostly taking off some weight but while not spending a ton of money to shave a few ounces.. I like the Pelican cases a lot but I'm contemplating soft cases or going ultra-lite and just using a waterproof duffel strapped to the rear rack along with my "tank" bag and a hydration pack with a little storage capacity. Plan for a discussion about custom soft cases at the pre-New Years Eve camp-n-ride...

Is that the trail Rudy, Thanh and I found you on? If so then that is where the WR died too, never bring a butter knife to a gun fight!!

Have you considered the DR? Not that I'm letting mine go....

The farkle is wonderfully cheap and plentiful.

I think the DR is an excellent bike but I'm thinking lighter. Like the cheap aspect though...much like the KLR....that I sold...sniff
Really interested it trying the KTM. More power, less weight. Sure fired way to get my ass in a sling

Packing list

I remember seeing a mandatory and suggested packing list but cannot find it anymore. Can someone point me in the right direction?

IS IT JUNE YET?
