Garmin Good?

I'm glad to see you got your GPS replaced; too bad it took so much frustration to deal with it's idiosyncracies. I went ahead and looked up the Monterra model. I didn't know a Garmin could do that...

Nice to see!

Austin Vince and the Mondo Enduro boys as well as his Terra Circa crew knew back in '92 and later that a 350 is plenty big for global circumnavigation. In my opinion, we are a little...

Different

Your adventure sure looks a whole lot different than what I'm used to, but not in a bad way, just in an unfamiliar way, mostly flat or seemingly variations on that theme. Riding in a country I don't...

Color-coordinated Fleet?

Tell me it's pure coincidence your new four-wheeled acquisition just happened to be black & white. Tell me you're not going to be sporting black gear and a white helmet.
