Happy new year Paul, all the very best in 2019. Looking forward to your next report.
So when you get to the UK give me a shout Paul, I have some dirt roads (well mud and rocks) we can ride
Paul, our door is open for you if you make it to Thailand. On your map I would suggest Northern Laos as well.
Happy new year.
Rock on Paul!! Gonna be a great 2019!!
You’re always wanting a dependable off road capable light weight dual sport... I think you should check out a TW200. That would add some spice to your ride!!
any true word said in jest, the tee-dub is the runaround when i'm in AZ, don't have photos sadly. Bad part is the luggage rack can only hold 7lbs so max luggage is a 12 pack...
@ozrockrat jump in here
I want a TW for the missus!
sounds like a fair trade
What more could a man need??
you're right it does contain all the major food groups...kinda
That sentence is right about beer and a tee dub! Haha
We both know the guy to design and build a rack that transfers all the force back to the frame near the foot pegs (like he did on that custom 950SE setup). I that covers the carrying capacity.
So that brings us to the power side . Having followed your progress over the last couple of years the TW can easily handle that many miles per day. You may just have to ride every day to keep the average up LOL
Then comes reliability. I was shuffling my stored bikes fleet. Guess which bike started first go and which one wouldn’t start at all
Usually the bike that has the highest compression ratio engine will be the hardest to get going after a term in storage...
Hmmmm. Looked back quite a few pages, scanning for a "clue".... couldn't see one but I thought you'd alluded to wanting to get back on a bigger bike? Is the new Africa Twin on your "list"? Not a whole lot bigger, admittedly, but it's a twin vs the KLR single?
Best Regards Paul, reading your educational-have the packing method put to memory and entertaining writing with pics that add another 10k words to the prose. thanks for the many years of steady reports ,each having its own greatness. Best to you this year, looking to be the greatest year yet. yokesman
only need to go back two pages
I must be slow (as is mostly the case), I've trawled the last few pages several times and can't for the life of me pick it. I know you still have your S10 but I would have thought that was too heavy for many of the routes you are thinking of?
So, I'll stay in suspense and wait until all is revealed.
I’m guessing either a drone or a KTM 500 exc. it doesn’t really matter to me as long as you can keep riding, writing and shooting. Oh, and posting. Your ride of choice is always interesting and your modifications and preparations well worth checking out.
I'm thinking the clue involves North Carolina, as that's where the new journey starts.
What bike is located there, ????
