It was the first proper meal we had since Sunday Noon.
As we ate bread and drunk coke......
It was 100% pure pleasure.

Absolutely stunning report!! The photos were great! Great to see a Strom out there as there are a few who doubt the "dirt" worthiness of it.
Thanks for sharing your adventure with us.

He did some maintenance, repair and yet did NOT clean the bike? Terrible service....

Great reading!


(I'm interested your vario cases seem to survive!)

wow, great, can't wait for the rest of the pictures, if i'm not wrong you had changed all the tires of all the bikes, what tires did you use for that trip?

As soon as i find a prof, i'll make a trip like that, say hi for me to prof.

Btw as i understood, riders are more important than bikes for this kind of rides.

Amazing to get a photo of that exact moment

Great report and photos; glad you are OK after what sounds like a nasty fall.
