Great video. They sure can dance.
Beautiful is correctimondo. Make sure you go down to Baranco. You can walk there from Miraflores. Its very turn of the century with great food and bars.
Cheers on the ride
That park has many eatery's and some of the women wait for an invite to sit down and have a Pisco sour very nice conversation but the price was a little high.
Today I visited Big Trail Center Peru in Lima and had some work and cleaning done.
Old JT 15t front with over 30,000 miles. Teeth starting to hook a little as you can see here.
@procycle these Polyurethane cush rubbers are like new with over 18,000 hard miles. That would have wasted at least one stock Suzuki rubber set. Most likely two sets. Great product!
New shoes. And the exact tire I wanted
rear JT 43t showing sharp teeth and deep centers
New 15t JT steel front sprocket
Skid plate removed for the first time since Sunny was built. They degreased everything. Just a few dings and gouges
Sprayed on rubber liner holding up well (dampens sound a bit)
New MotoZ Tractionator GPS going on (tubeless)
Old EK SRX2 525 with over 30,000 miles. Quite a few tighter links. She did well.
new JT branded X ring chain. Best they had
Front going on
Michelin Serac from Chetumal Mexico with thin Center. Still felt ok on pavement but was absolutely awful in dirt or rock.
That's awesome feedback!
It's great know they are holding up as well as I had always hoped.
Bang-up job on this RR, Dan. Really good to see you and Sunny staying healthy!
And more Long Way Up breaking news from Peru, again from a rider I travelled with, a French woman Caro Botique. Like Ben she’s a bit further south than me
here’s Caro’s report:
FYI for those who follow, I crossed path with them on the 3S near Abancay today. One of the electric rivian truck a few kilometres ahead, then the three bikes. No signs of the other support vehicles.
She is really holding up well. I just might be sold on my next bike.
I really don’t ride her like an off-road bike. I ride her like a comfy touring bike (which she is) that goes off-road. That goes a long way towards long life.
Her true capability in the dirt isn’t going to be tested by me most likely although I have already ridden some insane unpaved shit in Peru!

I met her near Palanque, does she have a blog?
Great update Dan, it'll be interesting to see how the Motoz tyres hold up on a fully laden Sunny. Pressures?
Not that I know of. She does have a Facebook Page same name.
Where are you riding at the moment?
I originally left on these tires. The rear went over 10,000 miles. First rear tire I’ve ever had to do that. They’re great tires. Even in mud.
To protect the rims I don’t air down my tires for rough off road stuff. Run near max pressure. 38 psi rear, 32 front. Helps them wear longer

Are you sure it was Caro?
I’m pretty sure she flew to Colombia from France, bought her Honda XRE300 in Colombia and has been riding south from Colombia.....
My second LED flasher relay from you failed. Any chance of having a replacement sent somewhere ahead of me?
Here are some pictures from the Nikon B500 from the last little while. Starting with being up at altitude in the Andes in Huaraz ,staying at Luis' Airbnb room and then the ride down to the coastline. First to a small puebla south of Barranca called Penegal and then on south along the coast to Lima. Sorry, not any Lima traffic pictures. I was kinda busy
Sunny posing by another glacier. She's getting used to it and being a little bratty at times.
The never ending switchbacks of PE16 West
Another glacier waiting to collapse and crush everything beneath it
I haven't hit 16,000 ft yet. Getting close
Died and gone to heaven
In the middle of no where on a switchback, a sign for a "mirador" or overlook appears. Barely room for a car to park, but here it is, and it was a nice place to eat a sandwich and devour an orange
Look at the road far below on the right that took you into this cut
Aye thar be switchbacks matey
I'm here at a heavy equipment maintenance yard, changing the oil. I purchased form them 3L of Puma 10w50 semi-synthetic oil. Never heard of the brand. Usually I pay whatever to run quality full synthetic oil. I'm sure it's fine, and feels great right now, especially being back at sea level and getting those 4 HP back
I've passed by several towns with arenas
Odd, (I thought) sculpture. I absolutely love the bright colors of the local clothing in opposition to the often mono-toned background
Huaraz from Luis' roof
Archie, one of Luis' four cats
A good sunset shot of Luis' bank of four solar-water heaters that feed all six floors of his building. The shower had LOTS of VERY hot water if you needed
Contact the sales staff. They will fix you up. I'm hanging out in New Mexico for the next couple of months.
This home was alone at the highest point
Those aren't mountains in the distance
