Top effort with the diagnostics MR D!

And I see from the photos you are definitely running a 'Spot' again, but your TMK website page 'Where are we Now?' doesn't seem to work for me. :-(

First 'drop' of the entire trip Andi, and considering the conditions you have been encountering and the fact that you are now riding two-up, mighty impressive record bro!

Cool buses in this region, one of many that we saw





Do the busses in Panama also run Racing Slicks on the steering axles?

PO's wiring....glad you got it. That's spaghetti wiring to me.....I mentioned that to the owner of that GS that's in my shop, he said "Tagliatelles"....I said overcooked anyway...Got to fix that amongst other things.

Gotta go back to the big orange thing....Seeya!
You doing firewood or something bro?, yeah the chocolate was nice, lots here in Xela too

These guys seem to have a "bling and shiny off" contest running, some amazing colour graphics and chrome.

Nah that is the dead spot Pete, our new one arrives on the 20th, I just leave that there to stop the mount from vibrating as it drive me nuts and at least that is a good place to stick spot anyway.

Diagnostics ... mate I was getting pretty pissy with it hence the total strip down and I was happy to find that for sure.

Back to square 1 again and cross fingers things go well.

Even had to remove the "shower" just in case the double tree hit it. Was a waste of time....good logger he missed.

I could use a 4WD "specialist" if just to pull more out, can't see around the bend with 50m of cable and need a thick head if the log jams somewhere, that windshield is pretty close to the forehead.

Firewood for years, summer sun in the yard and no more dangerous trees. Big orange thing(s) like fuel....25 Liters so far.

Show more.....confectionaries.

No sir that is how it looks straight off our camera, we don't use any photo enhancing stuff so what you see is what we see.

So yeap we are committing crimes everyday
