If you're not carefull they will be bringing one of the new watercooled twins in to the fold.
Motoadventura in Osorno are the folks we rented 650 singles from for the second half of our trip in SA. The first half of my adventure in SA was a three week shakedown trip with Compass Expeditions that started in La Paz Bolivia ended not far from Osorno. Then we took a bus to Osorno and picked up the 650s for a three week trip 'south' to Ushuaia. We dropped the bikes off in Punta Arenas and flew home from there. It was a great way to do a tour of Patagonia. I highly recommend it. I would love to do it again.
and a pic from their website with yours truly showing I was really there....
I call bluff!! You aren't holding the white dog, so it's clearly an imposter!
Half the folks on this adventure were Australian and several were retired firemen with outstanding humor and good nature as well as an affinity for mischief. We bought dynamite in Bolivia at a market (five sticks with fuse and blasting caps for $4) that was used to blow up tires in the desert.
I've diligently packed the obligatory 3 pairs of gloves. Now, I've just got to look around and make sure I've not forgot to do anything before we leave in T-3 days...
Front tire is here so off I go to the garage.
Your bike looks ready and pointed the right direction.
I've packed and filtered and packed again. Now to see if I really need all this stuff.....
three sets of gloves? check.
spare keys? check.
only three pairs of gloves - how will you get through the trip
i have five plus the heated ones
five gloves is ok but six would be better.......remember you have two hands....
now if you were a grammarian instead of a molecular biologist you would recognize that five modifies pairs and thus means five pairs of gloves
I must admit I was confused. I thought you were referring to five fingers and was more than concerned that you grew up counting with a slide rule and then my fear took over and I realized that...well perhaps you can navigate by looking at the STARS! Like before GPS......
back in the days of wooden ships I did navigate by the stars - on this ride I am just going to follow Dana
I just hope you guys are faster than the last set of slow pokes. Would you believe that it took them 4 days to get off track 1!
PS My mileage calculation may or (may not) have been off by an order of magnitude....you know what they say: Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.
Gents, we now have experience
which comes from bad judgement......or something like that I learned awhile ago.
So it was a late night in the garage but it was pretty fun. I got the front tire mounted and balanced, rear tire dismounted, fluid in final drive changed....that's another story, and as a bonus I got the extra supports for the pannier racks modified and mounted. So the rear tire should be in when I get home so hopefully I can get that finished up. Not done but getting closer. Saturday night when I let all the stress go from the prep stuff will be great, but Sunday will be a long day as I am sure to be still tired.......but the fun will be just beginning!
