Thanks - be safe and see it all while you can.

I know you asked this 11 months ago, but its a suzuki freewind xf650, never sold in the US, they where pretty good, still are but discontinued. It had same engine as the dr 650 but more cruiser friendly

USHUAIA. and another adventure!

Spent the past few days relaxing and also editing videos that you have seen posted on my thread.

Also preparing for my expedition to Antarctica. Well....... My ship has come in.



I am all packed up and headed down to board the M/V Planus

Length:89 meters (293 feet)
Breadth:14,5 meters (47 feet)
Draft:5 meters (16 feet)
Ice class:1D
Displacement:3175 tonnes
Engines:3x Diesel-Electric
Speed:10 - 12 knots
Passengers:114 in 53 cabins

The brochure photos look like this.....




So off I go.

NOTE::: This means RADIO SILENCE for 10 days or so, as I will not bother with interent aboard the ship. Will have a few photos and commentary when I get back to dry land. Wish me luck!! Off to the big snowcovered continent!!.


Get your Christmas Shopping done, finish putting up the tree etc...... You got a bot of extra time now

Ken and I spent the afternoon the day before on the rooftop deck enjoying the views!



More Postcards sent out for little Reese. Hope in some small way it will help brighten their days!



We stayed here, and headed off in the morning to Cerro Sombero ...... Tierra Del Fuego



The wind was blowing .... hard to capture a good photo of how much wind there is but it is a great deal with gusts....



Stopped for a nice Coffee along the way. Sign post tells us how far away we are.



Did I say it was windy?



Yes but I am really south in South America seems a bit unreal. Still worth a windy jump!



We arrive at the northern ferry crossing the narrows of Magellan onto Tierra Del Fuego



At the ferry "dock" we meet up with Robbie from NY. He has been riding as long as I have on a 1975 Honda CB500. After introductions and such, he sees a "radiomanridestheworld" sticker on my bike and says; "your Radioman".... "Your famous"



The ferry arrives:



We ride on and off we go.





Look where I am!



The excitement is building. Just 445 KM to Ushuaia.

... Been away from reading for some time... Do I see right: a guy on a 500T Honda (grand child of the mighty CB450 DOHC) all the way from NY?? These bikes were considered fragile, gutless and not able to do anything (the 500 not the 450)... Wow!!
