Bluhduh VStrom

Today, 8 days before the start of the trip, Miguel´s Vstrom would not start. Battery power seem to be OK, but the starter motor would not move.

This happened to the GS1200 2 weeks ago. The BMW dealership replaced the battery under guarantee. Hope this doesn't happen in the future.

Up to now the TDM´s are trouble free , will see after the start of the trip.

A little too much time - and a little anxious

This is the approximate altitude chart that is to be expected. A lot of high peaks meaning a lot of cold weather.

Ahoraquemister, mucha suerte a ti y tu grupo de amigos. Cuando vengas de Mendoza a Chile, los podria acompañar desde la frontera a Santiago. De todas formas avisame a mi mail neosajan hotmail.com, para coordinar algo o por si necesitan ayuda de datos para comprarle algo a sus motos, etc. o por ultimo tomarse unas cervezas.

Por otro lado tambien publica las fotos en Yamaha TDM riders.

Saludos.

Pablo
