Now, let me get this straight. You built a wheel just by setting the spokes, without a rig? You are a damn magician! That is something I would never attempt - and I did work on bicycle and motorcycle spoke wheels.

Apparently, it's true: necessity is a mother of brilliance!

On another note: I thought you guys were riding in the middle of nowhere. Far away. Yet, anywhere you go, you meet fellow travelers. What's the matter. is the place totally overrun by moto adventurers? Is it like New York City, where the only pedestrians on a weekend are tourists?
