Sorry for the Delay team. I have been working like crazy to be able to afford this trip and take a month off. It also seems like every day I have off and could ride its been raining and nasty. I have been slowly procuring all the supplies I need. Here is the list; Pro-taper handle bars (found the bike down on the street with a nicely bent bar) grips GPS mount tires front and rear (Kenda K270s) cables (throttle and clutch) break pads Klim Dakar pants and jersey Scott goggles Frogg Togg pants RK Chain Front and Rear Tubes Tire Pump wicking undershirts Still Need; dry bags to carry everything tool carrier (smashed my old welding tube awile ago) Purchase the maps Air Filter I'm Sure there is more that Ill need and just cant remember now. Hopefully I can do some good riding in the next couple of weeks. Ill keep you updated.
