Hey Guys!

The bike is looking good, and it's good to see you back on the road.
Best wishes from the frozen north...

Great to see everything running smoothly again. No doubt a relief for you guys too. Would also like to compliment you on your photos. Very professional look and totally awesome. Nice trick with the fork seal. Had a leaking one on the Tiger oddly but, with the dealer down the road, and current warranty why would you bother... The poor wee KTM is knackered after the DB1K and needs new just about everything so that will keep me amused. Carry on chaps.

Heya Mark, I woulda have had our done under warrantee to if that were the case but nothing on this old girl.

Hopefully sorted it without a seal replacement, time will tell, at least they are a std size seal.

I think you guys did it....plastic spoon in the salsa looks used.

Careful down there if you get any of that on some body parts, you'll be looking for sugar real fast. There you go....my tip on an antidote.Been there. Don't play with the chiles or if you do so.....wash your hands before using the banos.

Read this whole R/R in three days. Amazing! Just amazing.

You've been through so much together, and your positive spirit lives on. There's nothing you can't get through.

I'll be reading to the beginning, and if you keep going this slow (, but not really) - I might just catch up to you in SA!

Yeah gotta be careful not to transfer the fire to other locations.

Funny, in Mexico City we met up with a friend, the only restaurant we have been to in Mexico and I got a crook gut from that.
