    Hey canoeguy,
    Great read, I recently did the ride from Ushiaia to BA, and I am loving your take on things. Hey can send us a list of the kit you put together and how much things set you back (ballpark figure).
    What did you think of Ruta 40?? bit windy?
    I am heading to Canada next year and I would like to ride up to Dead horse for a look.
    There are some great places to stay in BA you'll love it I'm sure.

    :clap

    You are one hell of a cheap ozzie bastard alright... but man what an adventure rider. I like your style.

    Thanks for the efforts of sharing your passion with us.

    Farkenell Dave...

    How 'bout doing lots of little trip reports ya c^nt... I started reading this at 6pm last night (on the company dime of course)... 'tis now 2:52 the next arvo, and I started again at 8 this morning... and I haven't done diddly squat else...

    I'd call you a c^nt again, but as we know in Aus, c^nts are usefull and I don't want to give you another compliment...

    Without pissin in ya pocket, loved it and couldn't stop till I finished. Fuck Euchuca-Moama, next time I have to haul down to Vic I am coming through Aulbury just to say g'day and hire one of your canoe's...

    (now that I was so nice, can you send me the photos of all those South American chicks sans clothes... I know you have them somewhere in the wank bank)...

    Cheers,
    Daewoo... (tight arse Aussie KLR rider)...

    A good question.
    Aren't Aussie customs fierce on bikes coming into the country
    requiring A HazMat cleaning team to disinfect the Beast first?
    Maybe we'll be lucky and the Ride Report will be finished
    or Daewoo's going to be going to the barbie to find out how it all ended....
