I see you have your flex-mount for your camera back on the bike. I remember seeing that in one of your earlier RRs, before this RTW epic began. I thought it was a great idea and wondered why you...

Placitas Cafe?

Selaznog.....when you refer to the "Placitas Cafe", do you mean the Pinon Cafe by The Merc? Or is there another cafe around here that I don't know about?

Great report

John...
Very well written report. Balanced, in my opinion, between prose and photos. It seems that so many ADVers pass through NM on the way to somewhere else and very few spend any real time...

Placitas

I don't see any recommendations for the Placitas area, north of ABQ. We chose this area because it is close enough, and far enough away from, Albuquerque. 30 minutes from our home to the airport...

Good Fortune!

Be safe, have fun, and thank you for sharing.

Can you ID those panniers, and frames to carry 'em? I have an F800 and I am curious about this setup you have.

Can’t beat this from Costco for $15

Very comfy. I have put about 250 miles so far and it is very good. Even in the hot weather.

How do you keep it fixed to your seat? A strap? Velcro?:ear

Great ride! Great ride report. How did the K60's work out? I put a set on my F800....they look like a good 50/50 tire.

I like the way you two toss it back and forth. More so than other pairs of riders; usually one is doing most of the RR and the other only adds a few things here and there. But you two add equally. ...
