And Twinkies. Don't forget Twinkies.
After spending some time with you, you got me thinking about a couple of things:
I think i am going to sell my big BMW when i am finished with in Europe and then finish my trip on a smaller bike that will not limit me
The other thing is i am thinking it might be nice to leave some room for a passenger to travel with me. Afterall, i will be heading thru Ukraine this summer
For now, i am enjoying riding my big 250 thru Vietnam. I don't know how i got in' but i am not asking questions
Morning Ed, listen to Noah. I'm pretty sure He will tell you to sell the big BMW and buy a KLR
If you do ,you could extend your trip another two or three years!
Hmm..kinda late..but subscribed.
Just finished reading the first 200 pages, and what an adventure!!
Thank you Noah, for taking me along.. It's been amazing.
Will be following you until you get back...
Man, a thread like this makes me want to take a trip around the world on two wheels. I have been around the world but not on a cycle. Well done and looking forward to more!!!
After two terms of school I fell behind slightly, but I'm caught up now. After 200+ pages I noticed you switched helmets. Could you possibly give me some pros and cons for both?
250 is perfect in Vietnam.. I bet it would be perfect in Africa also..
Or a 690... or you could take a look at a CCM 450. Its got a re-designed/bastard child BMW(Kymco) motor in it
Thanks for coming along. Its been interesting.
First I had the Shoei DS. It was good but it didn't quite fit my huge head right. When I went down in Yellowstone I got a concussion and bashed the helmet up pretty bad. I figured it was time for a new one.
I tried on the Arai and it fit amazing. Plus the bright yellow is pretty sweet. Although now it has faded.
Both helmets are good. but the Arai is better quality I think. The visor is softer plastic and won't break if you drop the helmet. I know because I've dropped it a lot. I don't like that the vent covers are attached with double sided tape on the Arai. I've lost 2 vent covers now... so they just stay off. I would pick the Arai over the Shoei if I did it again. Better quality, quieter and better ventilation. Also better fit (in my opinion) but that might just be my head.
on the topic of helmets, theres a new one that I think is quite interesting
I have no experience with Caberg though
Is it weird that I immediately thought of a beaver when I saw that helmet?
So all I have to do is get a concussion and I too can have a new helmet. Hmm...I'll be right back.
Now back to the ride report . . . Noah thanks for keeping us updated when you can, and enjoy the ride! Been following since close to your start, you are an inspiration to us all, and your storytelling of the ride and experience is top notch, along with your photos.
Its basically a Caberg Trip which I have used and are alright helmets with a peak fitted and a big jump in price
Noah, here ya go. Look at this. Is nothing sacred?
I was going to say caberg Duke.
From the seat of my Tiger 800.
Just stumbled across this...
Hope you are well Noah.
I know nothing about this helmet. So.. no opinion will be given.
Yup. If you are going to cut a KTM.. you should at least have some talent like Roland Sands. http://www.rolandsands.com/wp/2013/08/09/rsd-ktm-690-tracker
This is probably the most famous Russian bike on ADV rider. Or at least Most famous KLR in Russia.
Wow. That castrated KTM is incredibly ugly. At least the Russian KLR has a purpose. Could we get back to the trip? I'm losing my appetite.
Heck yes, Phnom Penh. Love that place.
I took an Aussie mate on a southern Cambodia ride for his bucks party. The culmination was a stag night in PP.
I think I took $100USD out on the town and paid for all three of us... nearly killed us all!!
I'll live there one day.
