Cant wait!

In and judging by the pics from last year the quality is going to be great.

Cant wait to see how the bike performs.

Good luck on the trip

What do you pack for a trip like this

Joe if you have time can you tell us what do you take for a trip like this and how do you pack?

Have a great trip Joe!

It was not easy along the eastcoast of lake Turkana, but then much harder on the west side of the Omo river.








And the final highlight in January 2012 was the Danakil dessert

Question What are you taking and how do you pack Joe

Hi Joe I would like to know what do you take for a trip like this and how do you pack (paniers, soft bags etc). Also I would like to know if you are going to have a support team with you.

Have a great trip and keep us informed!

As you see on the pictures, I'm allways traveling with paniers.
And I never use a support team.
It would take to long to write up all the things I'm taking with me.
There is nothing special, but a lot of camera and video equipment and a laptop.

Joe...

Good luck on your amazing trip and keep the rubber side down!

And PLEASE... ride the living hell out of that bike, write up honest reports, post here, and hopefully... shut up the OCFs (Orange Crush Fundamentalists) who are taking a huge dump on KTM for building a new bike. If the world listened to people like this, we'd still be rolling around in covered wagons with wooden wheels

Awesome ride.

I admire you.
On the equipment preparation, is this a Montana GPS you had on your previous bike? Could you show some mounting photos?
What camera are you using? photos are amazing and clear.
Cheers.

Yes that's the Garmin Montana.
For mounting I used the KTM GPS Holder for the 950/990.

The pictures have been done with Nikon D300/300S

regards
Joe
