Hi, It all looks good so far and I hope you both have a great journey.
I said I would give you my blog address and the thread on this site is "Grumpy travels the Americas". All good so far but I need to find a bike shop for Scottoil etc as I couldn't bring and on the plane. I had no luck with the pre-filter either as the company & the MD failed to respond to my e mails. The UK rep said he would try but have not heard anything.
Anyway, have a read and I hope to keep up with your thread when I can.
ps. You ALWAYS have too much luggage but not enough when you need it !!
