No... starts on first turn instead of second now so thats a good sign already. I'm gonna take it out tomorrow rain or shine?

I am interested in hearing what the difference is from your standpoint. Since you don't use the snorkel it should be easily noticeable.

Went on a 360 mile shakedown ride with my new ADV Platform and never saw a gas station or another Human for that matter.

Touratech Centennial Rally for 2013

Just managed to complete the The Touratech Centennial Rally for 2013 - a three day forest-based rally starting in Carlisle. Whacked on some Maxxis MaxEnduros and was ready to go. Day 1 about 120 miles, Day 2 240 miles and Day 3 130 miles. Can't say I was the quickest around the course - but completed it which was objective. Booked in for Cambrian Rally now.

More info on event here:

Good for you Cotswold Ben! The bike looks great and you are out there going for it. Quite enviable- something to aspire to. My compliments.
