    Heading north - from Ushuaia to Rada Tilly
    After a short stay in Ushuaia it was time to go back north. It went almost without trouble...

    Looks like almost halfway to Buenos Aries. Looks like Peto had some company during that last stop and was keeping a sharp eye out for that cat. You mentioned it was getting warmer so instead of -5 it is now +5 ?

    About halfway - pretty much FFWD mode again but there is really not much to see in between. It seems that temp is mostly above freezing now :D

    Ruta 3 - the most boring road I ever rode (from Rada Tilly to Buenos Aires)

    It was driving, sleeping, driving, sleeping and almost sleeping while driving - watch what all happened on my way up north towards Buenos Aires (12.-22.5.2016).

    As the owner of the same machine, albeit without the sidecar, I wonder how many times have you changed the bearing in the 3 years and have you checked the shimming at any time?
    Congrats on making it to B.A. It won't be long before you see Skippy.

    I guess 4 times whereas it was once broken that the oil leaked, the rest was more preventive nature. To the topic of shimming - I say mañana when I am back in Finland with proper tools. Anyway, based on the remaining noises one or both of the other bearings are also history by now. They lasted pretty well.

    Believe me, I am counting the days:deal

    What happened to the pictures? The last 10 pages don't have any pictures. Miss them. :(

    Too bad - I started to put those very few pictures into the travelogues because I find it more convenient to have all in one place.
    The GoPro is so small and handy that I have it almost always with me. The video quality of GoPro is good but the picture quality is not so great. Besides that when capturing the material it is either picture or video. Carrying both equipment with me all the time is just too heavy as well as taking both series of pictures and series of video clips is too time consuming. A 10min video starts normally with 40-60minutes of material and then comes the editing ;) ... mmh maybe a topic for another video :D

    Going back "home" (from Argentina to Germany)
    It was a busy time organizing all things around the bike shipment as well as Peto's export papers. Besides that I had a bit of a time to explore Buenos Aires. Did I make it to Frankfurt as planned or did I have similar issues as Skippy had...
