WOO!

Helmet showed up Monday evening, it snowed tuesday morning and afternoon but I was able to take it to get it plated. And today has been practicing, learning how to shift up and down, practicing turning, etc.

I did take it on the elk refuge road. Wouldn't really call it a ride as it is less then a mile from my house, but it was a blast! Cannot wait for all the areas to open up in May.

Good eye Delta! Now i notice i'm also missing the RH rear winker.

Rim- old bent. After lots of kms like that, somehow never bothered to straight it back.

Hi izom,

Safe** here where I ride (Israel). You're welcome to come, lots of great riding areas here.
Rest of the Mid-East: heard it's awesome. Safe? can't say by person, because I haven't been there.
My choice is to leave it to others to find out .

Big Red, Simpson Desert, Australia.

fully loaded desert trip across the Simpson a few years back.

unsupported trip, so extra 20l of fuel, 15l water food and camping gear, its a handfull in the sand.

Awesome! ^^^

I have ridden cross country many times and each time I do I make sure I see the Tetons. One of my favorite places on earth.

My DR and our "mountains" here in Maine.

Our family friends built The Teton Teepee so we had ski trips there as kids. Now I want to go back in the summer for some moto experience. Beautiful area.

nzrian - I know for me, I can't wrap my head around an "unsupported" trip requiring that much in extra provisions. It's so convenient here, even in Baja, to get food, water and fuel in comparison. Well done.
