    Glad you liked it! Yes we made it and unscathed! We are taking a 6 month break from even talking about what is next. Time to debrief and absorb the last 6 years. We plan to be home in Canada for the next 12 months at least. Some non biking adventures planned in that time....The next few for Dan are kite surfing destinations! Looking at new bikes as well for next season as ours are souvenirs now except maybe the HU rally in Nakusp next summer. I might need a L of oil to get there and back :)

    I've enjoyed reading about your travels for a while now. What an inspirational journey! I especially like your honesty about gear, places, and experiences. Your stories have motivated me to get out and ride as much as I can, despite the potential pitfalls. Cheers.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to post a note to us! We really appreciate it. We did try to tell it like it is. I don't like reading a RR that you know from your own experience is not authentic. It was not always easy for sure, but so worth it in the end. Safe riding! S&D

    Bittersweet Day! We sold the bikes. Heard the new owners will rebuild the engines and they want to ride them back to Argentina!
