Anyhow, have a great trip and please send postcards! You doing a prelim writeup or anything?
PS - the stock Adv setup is for a 165lb rider so anyone who is north of that and loading gear on should definately beef up the shock and forks.
I'll make sure that you envy me even more after you see the pictures and story that's coming in about one to two months time.
The plan is to go through Marocco, Mauritenie, Senegal, Mali, Burkina Fasso to Ghana and then shipping the Adventure back by boot from Accra.
I'm going for the 85 kilo rear spring (does somebody know how to convert that into imperial measurements?)
