I sleep like a dead man.

WOW! what a shot! Totally front page material!

Earlier, the camping-on-the-road reminded me of my Alaska trip, where i took some overgrown road and was locked in by vegetation to camp right on it!

Again, Bravo! What a beautiful country you're riding in! I can only hope to go have my own adventure in that part of the world. Thank you for taking time and sharing yours with us

You have probably been asked this, but from your experience (riding the X), realistically, how much tougher, if at all, is the terrain on the F800 vs. the X? both bikes being loaded as they are. With kit and luggage, they both are hefty weights i bet. Thanks! is offline   Reply With Quote
