    A definite maybe... will the riding be in the local area using your place as a base camp or will it be a grand adventure like we did in Oregon?

    Base camp and between 100 and 200 miles daily loops. More if you're up to it. Jeff can do 700 mile loops. :lol3

    Everyone, thank you for the help on my starter relay issue. Got everything out and gave the relay a good tap, reinstalled and bingo everything worked perfect. In my relays defence it had been a couple weeks sence the bike was started and it did labor a bit to turn over the bike so I guess that I will need to start her more often if I'm not going to ride just to keep the bettery topped up.

    Thanks again for the help.

    In that case, would it bolt on to an RD07? Something tells me the RD07 and RD04 have the same bolt pattern, but i'm not sure.

    Gentlemen/Cabelleros,
    My friend and I ( We are David and Wolfgang) will start next week from Cuenca,Ecuador to spend 2 months travelling primarily to Brazil but including Peru. Uruguay, Argentina, Bolivia and Chile.
    I just had a regulator fail and must use my spare for the trip. We will both be on Africa Twins XRV 750Y years 2002 and 2003.
    Does anyone know a source for this part in South America. If and when I find them along the way I would like to buy 2.
    We will follow a route from Peru into Brazil,dropping into Uruguay and on into Argentina.We will cross to Santiago ,Chili where we have friends and catch Bolivia on the way back to Ecuador. Needless to say the earlier in the trip we can find these regulators the better.
    Any help will be much appreciated and any A/T riders along the way:1drink would be just another great excuse to stop and talk about the motos we love to travel on.
