Not the water cooled, it's a 2010. And yes the ribbed tire is 150/70-17. I took the last ones off (no rib) at 14,476 km but could have probably squeezed another 2000 out of them. About 35% if those...

center rib

Just put on my second set of E 07 Dakars on r1200GSA. Yes, the rear now has a center rib but much narrower and smaller than the Heidenau equivalents. I think this will be a good compromise, extending...

I'm a big fan of the Mitas E-07's. I love the feeling of confidence in gravel and mud, which I get a fair bit of up here in the mountains. And on pavement they've been fine, no complaints. I...

Heated grips on my '10 GSA are a major disappointment. On low they get warm, barely. On high they do better, not enough for a really chilly day though, and the thing is they cut off after something...

I'm all ears. Love the details. I did this ride 2 up with camping gear, but not the backroads parts. We continued north on the ferry system. Can you post a map? I'm hoping to go back for more...

Nice work on the Spanish translations. Many will thank you.
One correction: for Map (Mapa) it's actually masculine, El Mapa. There are some exceptions, this is one. Another is Policeman, it's El...

The Kootenays

Hi Esther, been following your adventure for quite some time. Not sure what your general route across Canada will be, are you staying north? If you wander down towards the south east part of BC I'd...

It would be really interesting, if you ever have time, to hear more of your thoughts on the pros & cons of smaller vs. bigger bikes for a ride like yours.

I'm...

Regarding diesel additives, a fellow with many years experience in a fuel injection shop told me the only additive to use was that made by Stanadyne (who also build fuel injection systems). I bought...

Mosquitos...

Looks like heaven where you are now! But, when there are bugs, I highly encourage mosquito nets for sleeping because the experience of malaria or dengue fever is not one you'll want to have.

Enjoying the winter

Seems like you've been getting lots of good advice and I'd say the most important thing is attitude, which in your case is sterling. But having lived in the Canadian bush for decades I will chime in...

Poo paper

In all of Latin America, except for high end hotels which cater to gringos, toilet paper goes in the can and it's burned at the end of the day. Although this can be an adjustment for norteamericanos...

Bluefields
