Thumb Too much fun

My back is sore from getting stuck but some how my feet are still dry. What a fun RR to almost be there, thanks for another great read. Captain Tom

You guys didn't seem too concerned about any of that, do you take any special precautions to avoid this type of thing?

Sorry for the dumb question from the North American city boy, but just curious...
The more obvious ones like BIG Crocs tend to feature in your atention.. I was more scared in a European hospital with their medically resistant bugs, african diseases are still relatively treatable..

You have some balls to wade into those muddy waters MJ.

Thanks for taking the trouble to post this report.

I must say I have not been an envious man, but after reading your artfully illustrated report complete with pictures of a lifetime, I will go to sleep tonight wanting. That was truly an adventure most can only dream of. Cheers to your balls of steel and ass's of leather. Great job guy's, thanks.

Makes me want to spend more money...

This has been an outstanding read these past few days.

Unfortunately, now I want (even more) to add another bike to the garage. I enjoyed hearing the ups and downs of the various bikes. Very informative.

Long time lurker, first post. Best RR ever!!

I stand in awe of what you two experienced and how you overcame each obstacle. You also helped me decide on my new bike. If the F800GS can survive that beating, it will be more than enough for me. I made the deal on Saturday and I pick it up on Wednesday. I can't freakin' wait!

Looking forward to the next MJ RR!

Read it all today. Outstanding work!
I'm very grateful you took the time to write this up and a very easy read it was too.

Simply outstanding report. Getting wore out just sitting here reading.

At least I know I will never ever be able to exceed my last purchased bike's capabilities. I've never seen such.
