Hell ya...keep on going!

Thanks for the ride report from start to finish.

It's been an amazing journey across many scenic landscapes and interesting cultural contrasts. Sometimes I wondered with all the bike problems how you guys would make it through but you did and good luck with your future endeavors.

All you need to do now is go around the world in the other direction on another trip.

Great RR. Loved following your progress. Sad to see it come to an end, but happy you reached your goal safe and sound. Thanks for keeping us all entertained and finishing the RR. Had us worried when you dropped off the radar there for a while. Finished ride, finished RR!

Great report gents. I think I checked both the ADV thread and the blog every day for the past 4 months since I found the initial thread. I will now have to find some other succinct, well written adventure with great photos to cheer on :( Hope to see and hear of your new adventures whenever they materialize. I really enjoyed the alternate spellings peppered throughout the report, including the "fairy" ver "ferry." Good times.

As usual when it involves Luke. Outstanding pictures and report. Just bet the people at KTM didn't enjoy it as much as we did. Bet it cost them in future sales.
Good luck this fishing season and hope you make and save lotsa moola so you can entertain us again next winter.
