Would enjoy catching up with you when you get back to Austin. I've been wanting to ride my Tenere to Glacier NP and am contemplating a trip in late August/early September. Have a great trip.
When first seeing your picture of your loaded bike I thought that you had a lot of stuff on the back of your bike. But upon closer look, that's a real tidy job of packing your gear, and it should ride the whole trip very well. It will affect your mpg at speed, not too much off the highway.
Have a great trip; you're going to one the prettiest places in the world.
I'm in Austin and am considering a similar trip on my 800 Roadie. My brothers live in Alberta, so I will be meeting up with them. I'll be following this with interest.
Hey.... I'm leaving Austin in the morning. Haven't decided on a destination. Was thinking on riding towards the Three Sisters and seeing the hill country. Wasn't sure if I want to go home or on an unscheduled ride-about.
Your bike is set up very nice, Im looking forward to this. Hope you have a great adventure to Alberta.
Interesting to see how the tiger does. Just bought the same bike.
OK, I'm in on this.
Thanks for all the comments and encouragement guys. I was having a great ride today.
I got to Ballenger Texas and this happened.
I hope those pictures aren't huge. I'm on my phone.
So I only logged 200 miles today and I'm about 300 miles off pace so 10 days in Canada now becomes nine days in Canada barring any other delays.
No good about the puncture.
Looks like the adventure part has begun...
Not a goddamn thing worth seeing or doing from Lubbock to Santa Rosa.
Here's today's excitement.
My 800XC when I went though Glacier. : 0
Immobilizer failed. Uhaul to the rescue...
In Moab now. Spectacular rides through Carson national forest, up to Pagosa Springs, Cortez to Moab the hard way. Riding into Moab was spectacular. Pics to come.
Did I use "spectacular"twice? I guess I did.
Several ADV merit badges earned. Key words: moo, oh shit, and "cool".
Great report & pics! Got your moose repellent?
Not yet. I need deer repellent right now.
Carson national forest
Took an off-road excursion and met mr sand.
No pics but...
I had a spare.
Proper planning prevents piss poor performance.
Two things I debated carrying and opted for at the last minute were spare tubes and spare levers. I have now needed both.
Decided on it after gleaning the wisdom of other inmates.
