Thanks for taking us along on your trip. The reports and photos have been great. I've been following since the start, since as a fellow Colorado Transalp rider I had to see where you were taking your TA. Looks like It's been holding up well which is great to know (with the exception of some breathing issues lately). How many miles do you have on the clock now. I've got ~85K on mine and still loving it.

I worked with Cigar Mike on prototyping the TA center stand, but mine hasn't seen the miles yours has. I know he had to make some slight alterations from the one on mine for you since I have an aftermarket rear shock. From the pic above it is obviously still in place and working. Has it been holding up well?
