(Can you size your pictures bigger?....I use and resize them to a 17 inch screen when site also lol)
Cheers weirdo. We saw some pics of the views up there we would have loved to have done it. Ball lightning though...

Picture size should be better now thanks for that

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 !!

I like your photo's!

I have the standard paper filter installed along with the pre-filter and brought a K&N re-usable filter along. Wishing I didn't now and just installed it instead of the paper one to save some space. When I was in Morocco I only had the paper one and it got real dirty but I obviously couldn't wash it so had to make do. If you can't get the pre-filter you might want to think about either carrying a spare filter or changing it over before you get to South America. I imagine it would be verry difficult to replace it in South America if you needed to
