Safe travels, see you soon!
Yaaay. Good to see you both looking so happy.
need more trip report, the fucin snow is killing me.
Can't change the past, so the future is all you got. Wishing you the best from my cold rainy office here in Dallas.
Hope the trip just gets bettter and better from here for you two!!!
Hey you two, good to see you getting out on the road again, Cindy says hi...
I was thinking the same thing
You got the bike looking great. Wish the both of you a safe and enjoyable journey on the rest of your trip. Take care. Fay
Its been boring with no reports lately , get riding . Boxs look good . Lots rain back here. Lakes fill to overflowing , Whitestone River bridge near here is out of action again . 4 weeks for me and im away again Ye ha Ride safe Toddy
I see you guys are now off and running again. Way to persevere. Welcome back to taco land.
It was great to wave off the TwoMotoKiwis this morning and to be a very small part of there journey. Big smiles on their faces was priceless. After all their misfortunate and some unwarranted sledges from some so called "fellow" riders, these guys know how to endure. I have to say after seeing their Jeese's I have a severe case of Luggage envy.
Remember guys ride it hard and put it away wet
All the best hopefully we can catch up in Mexico.
Hey thanks you guys for taking good care of our WMC members
Glad everyone has got them sorted out and on their way again
We didnt want to see Andi's sorry arse back here that soon
Now that they are on the road again maybe skype is on the cards again
What?!?! No two-up wheelie for your first trip down the street on the next leg of your adventure? OK. I'll let you off this time...
Seriously though, great to see Maya looking in the sort of condition it SHOULD have been when you first took delivery of it. And with the 'doctoring' of the internals, you guys deserve a MASSIVE break with the run of mechanical luck you've been experiencing.
All the very best for the New Year, new ride, and new adventures. Eagerly looking forward to your next installment.
That would have been funny - we (I) got into trouble a couple of days before after rapid run down that street with Andi on the back of my 990.
WOOHOO The adventure continues!
Good luck to you both, great to see you back on the road.
Have a blast!
With some of the riding I've done with Andi in the past, I KNOW he likes to conserve rubber on his front tire.... Typically hoisting the front wheel in first, and going up through the gears and remaining 'airborne' for extended periods. Hmmm... miss those days.
Have to say looking back at those photos you posted of the finished rig Andi, that luggage looks built to military grade. If those cases can hold your (not insignificant ) weight don't think there is much chance you are going to overload them! And that top box looks strong enough to be used as a cash-carry case by armored guards.
Glade to see you two back out on your trip. Looking forward to the rest of it.
Thanks for the props, won't be to long and we will have some reading up from our stay in Phoenix, we have been flat out working till late each night bolting, fixing, cutting, fixing, tying, fixing, unscrewing, fixing, rescrewing, fixing, and finally the good part of personalizing ..... ouwh and did I mention fixing :huh.
Pete, the cases are actually very lite, their design with folds etc gives them the strength and rigidity, have to say they are beautifully made AND beautifully finished INSIDE and out.
Many other cases are just alloy std finish inside and everything shuffles around and gets grey oxided :eek1.
Although for weight reasons I wanted to go for softies the design on these is outstanding bringing the weight down and in to the centre line of the bike so we ended up better off swinging the weight low rather than on a big rollie back behind Ellen up high.
Our Ozzie mates (oxymoron) have a 990 Adventure (nearly as nice as a SE )with the KTM gobby boxes, even with our case 1 inch further out on the left to get around the fuel tank we are still 5 inches narrower .... first time I am happy that an Ozzies is bigger than me
OK, nuff of this idle chatter, got some serious writing to do so you fullas can can up.
Cool! dude and dudess back on the road.....I have a really boring job and need these Ride reports to get me through the Week ....take care and look forward to your next post.
So what was done to the sub-frame to accommodate the increased load of the passenger and bags?
Any pictures of the modifications?
