    Hello DownUnder 2upAussie990....sorry for the Tardiness as I've been moving into a newer House to suit my woodworking skills: bigger garage:rofl. I also cannot believe that my 2008 ADV trip has been found among the thousands of great stories.:huh.

    By USA medical regulations I am considered deaf. Wearing a hearing aid on my right ear just for directional sounds..doesn't work. My left ear is shut off completely. I read lips well and don't hear grinding valves until the motor dies :eek1. At my age I don't think it's wise to fool with CI's. Better leave it be.

    Your 990 is a fine bike and please do see the world from your :ear perspective and let us know here.

    Cheers....

    Hello HEREWEGO...

    No, haven't done the Trans Taiga...but it's on my bucket list of rides before I get a bit too :gerg. I want to finish the TAT....CDT...Baie St. James/Trans Taiga...then with my Missus > Oregon, California, Baja, ferry across Gulf of California to mainland Mexico east, return back to USA via Brownsville,Tx... then home!

    I wish you had told your story here so that I(we) could learn from you about the realities of transitting the Trans Taiga including the few who did it. Not many do the TT, just Bay St. James.

    Aye..Cheers...

    Lovely RR.

    Great food piccies. :evil

    As somebody who had a relationship with a nymphomaniac hairdresser who was deaf from birth - I have to ask, were you also deaf from birth?

    Just because your prose is perfect, where hers was not good at all - despite she being very intelligent.
