The rider was inexperienced, and the 350 had some power-to-weight issues. Me and my gear weighed too much for the available power.

It got more difficult at altitude. The hairpin turns on top of the passes took alot of aggressive riding to climb.

Ladies and Gents...

Sorry for the recent delay. My family has become busy getting ready for memorial services. My Grandmother has passed at 93, the foundation of our clan, after a long illness.

Will get things going again in just a bit, still sorting through 500 pics . AND - Chanderjeet, my brotha, may have additions.

What is the fuel situation - the RE's have the range to go from petrol staion to petrol station did you need the extra containers?
