Weeks ahead of you my young padawan. I have the cleanspeedeng.com lever but I had to get larger bearings as my bike should have had the different newer bolt but it didnt. feck ! Ebay to the rescue.

hehe.... yes a fair bit the lever bearing took ages but thats another story !

rack and AS plate dont really fit together so tok time to work it out.

The LV exhaust also took some trial and error fitting but think its right but not happy the heat guard presses on the rear plastics but its cold.

u get my whatsapp message earlier?

Ok,
Little change of plans for Saturday the 11th.
We will be welcomed at the Penedono Motoclub in Penedono, they have their own camping field and a bar. Apparantly a couple of dirty bikers are reason enough for a little party :-)
It is only a few miles before the camping that was planned for that night, and the track allready passes through the town, so no need to change the tracks or anything.
We will get the exact address later on, but it's a small town and it should be obvious to find.

due to mechanical/health/ and 1 emergency hospital visit plus planned leavers for the french trip, the WYOA Portugal 2013 team has shrunk from 17 to 7.

weather forecast lied to us with snow on the hills thru spain and ambient temps of around 10c out of the sun in portugal and lots of rain.

We had some nice days and some extreme trails but sadly they took a toll on the bikes.

1 head gasket and rad leak
1 burnt clutch - new parts being arranged in Porto
1 690 thrown bearing - ball bearings somewhere in engine

Good luck and best wishes to all that remain.

photos to come later.

Hi guys,
Feeling sick and dizzy because of the side effects of antibiotics had to make me leave the WYOA 2013 early, unfortunately.

Did a 1250 km in 17 hours on a KTM 690 (From Toulouse France to Amsterdam) for my journey home.

The days in Portugal with the group were great! Thank you all... It was a lot of fun together...
Took some pictures:

Special thanks to the initiators: Rose and Danny

Greetz,
Mark
