    Top notch report and photos. Job well done.

    My little adventure (high desert in winter over the mountains in the picture background) seems like a walk in the park compared to yours.

    as far I know mate his leg is all good. He has two breaks and repair jobs pretty close on the same leg. Think he will be real carefull with that leg.

    Thanks to your bump I got to read this fantastic RR.......no BS, no drama, no whining, just a lot of riding and a little trama to spice things up. I wonder what those guys are doing today?....still riding I hope.

    Nice timing mate.
    Most are still riding with a few trading their boots for families. Myself I am just back in Europe after some tours of South America this year and last year in Central Asia and Vietnam 20180823_171129.jpg .
    I think there will always be a road or a track somewhere to explore.

    cheers sra

    Sorry mate no malice in the quote. Is a colloquial term we generally use when we are far from anywhere as Idaho is geographically a long way from us in Australia.
