    Got it working and it looks good, better than the Topolusitânia I think.

    Just a small update....

    We're finishing a day earlier on Friday the 17th, so that everybody has a better opportunity to get home and get some rest before the workweek begins :wink:

    Routewise....
    Got rid of the idea to add some Northern Spanish trails, the loop in Portugal is lengthy and good enough on itself...

    Draw some rough lines between Viana do Castelo - Braganca - Castelo Branco and you'll have an idea where we're going.

    Now let's see if we can be welcomed again on the same start/finish campsite as in 2011 :freaky

    Tracks and campsites are allmost ready.
    For the first time we have a real rest day :D
    (But for the ones that can't get enough of offroading, there's a whole lot of 4x4, ATV and Enduro GPStracks beginning and ending right there at the campsite:wink:)

    Took my Xchallenge out for a testrun to work yesterday, first time since September :eek1
    Almost forgot how much I love that bike!
    Fresh battery, fresh MT21's, fresh oil, GPS installed...
    Now let's hope the weather forecast keeps improving like it does now...


    BTW:
    If anybody did not receive the tracks&campsites via mail, let me know!

    Weeks ahead of you my young padawan. I have the cleanspeedeng.com lever but I had to get larger bearings as my bike should have had the different newer bolt but it didnt. feck ! Ebay to the rescue.

    hehe.... yes a fair bit the lever bearing took ages but thats another story !

    rack and AS plate dont really fit together so tok time to work it out.

    The LV exhaust also took some trial and error fitting but think its right but not happy the heat guard presses on the rear plastics but its cold.

    u get my whatsapp message earlier?
