Thanks, I should have known better! LOL....
When do you think you'll get to Magadan?
IN! This is gonna be good, love the bike.....
The 500/501 may be the perfect DS travel bike. I had a '17 501 that I used for travel like the Dalton highway and it worked great. When I got home I bought a '18 701 thinking it would be a better highway ride. Since then I traded the 501 in on a '19 TE300i thinking it would be a better mountain bike than the 501. Now, I just got back from riding 10 days in Baja on the 701 pulling a Sherpax trailer. Sure enough, the 701 was very good on the highway, but in the sand it's not as good as the 501, but that might be due to rider inexperience. The 701/690 have a close ratio trans which doesn't help offroad. The 501/500 have a wide ratio and it does seem to be more appropriate for DS riding. I may have to go back to a 501 at some point. At least all the replacement bodywork, lights, and racks fit the 300, so if I do get another 501 I'll have those accessories to put on it for traveling. I look forward to following your ride report. If you get close to T or C, NM please stop by. I have a guest house you can use which is 2 1/2 blocks from our great brewery!

I will be watching and wishing I was there! If you get to Tucson on your way south you are welcome here. A first hand report on the Can to Mex tracks would be great!
In - like Flynn!
Awesome! I'm very excited for this. Your RR's are always first class.
I'm VERY in for this one. The bike build so far has been ace Can't wait for this RR to get rolling. Between you and @Aaron.S, I might just trade my TE610 for a KTM
Have a safe adventure Paul. I'm in envy and wish I was doing the same thing. someday...
Thanks Paul for your past postings, and great photos. And in advance for this future adventure.

Looking forward to follow this new chapter of your adventure - and to spend time with you again, when you reach my part of the woods.
I usually find these things half way thru the journey. Nice to be here so early at the beginning to follow along. Good luck RTWPaul. Color me envious
Finally get to read one of your RR in real time . . . Woo Hoo!
If you need a place in Santa Fe. . .
