    It's in the morning now and I have read your report with such interest I could not stop till the end. The challenge, Adventure, the difficulties and the People along the way that really help. The Photography was so good that It humbles me with my automatic point and shot. teaching us all about CO2 to inflate tires and the way to make a road essential air compressor. The tire plugs with hairiness work best and that in few cases the cheapest is the best. The skills of the People living at the edge of civilization are remarkable, generous, and in fact they become part of a great story of People helping people for the very best of motivation, the goodness of humanity.

    Thank You

    :clap

    I wish it was'nt a terrible day when they were here I was going to do a stretch on the KLR with them, but my suit is far from waterproof so I had to stay back. Next time. This group is far from rude NY'ers! they are all great people and I am humbled to have met them all!....

    take care of the little one gregor!

    Well Judiaann and the new baby are certainly a contributing factor but the fact that my race bike was stolen, blown up and then recovered is also a bit of a factor. That engine was built just for RallyMoto too...

    Have fun!

    Hi Friends!

    Last night Judiaann gave birth at 3:37am to Nadia (6lbs.13oz.) who might be the youngest person to have ever ridden a KTM 950 (albeit in utero) on the Trans Lab Highway.

    Judiaann did it with no pain killers proving once again she is hard core. Everyone is healthy and happy!
