    Absolutely amazing, best RR I have read. Great pictures too. How are you going to top that trip? Sounds like you had an absolute blast. Not many people would even think about doing that trip, very few would attempt it, fewer still would take lots of interesting detours on the way. You have my utmost respect.

    No no no, you must be cheating! For a long trip like to this you need at least 1200cc, 132 horses, huge aluminium paniers and a bike with a special „arctic, snow and ice super pro“ ride mode, which itself would cost more than your complete bike! With a upgraded 1.5kW alternator to keep your micro processor controlled heated suit and helmet with air conditioning up and running...

    ;-)

    Well done man, respect!
