Thanks for the Kind words, it is really satisfying to have comments posted like this (ask anyone who takes the time and efforts to do a RR).!!

Yes we can all do many things out of our comfort zone, it just takes dreaming it, then doing it. There are always choices to be made to do these things and not everyone wants or likes the same things in Adventure just like in life!!

Mark I really enjoyed reading about and seeing your Antartica pics. You have a gift for bringing us along for the ride the way you write up your RR. THANKS.
I've been wondering about your bike. After your motor problem in US have you had any other problems other then regular maintainance stuff ?
Has the quality of the gas in different countries been much of a problem ?
Any chance you'll be at Hell's Canyon this year? June 20-23 2013 are the dates.
Take care Radio and stay safe this coming year, rj in walla walla

1) Bike has run well since AZ. Have done scheduled Maintenance and had to change chain and sprockets at 23,000 Miles.
(not including my two unplanned get offs :)

2) I used Octane boost in Colombia and Bolivia but have not had any fuel related problems.

3) Do not know about HellsCanyon.... Do not have a planned return date yet. Just have to see how money and timing works out.

Happy New Year to you!

I don't want you to end your ride any earlier than you want to but selfishly I would like you to attend Hells Canyon. Some times it's difficult to want one thing for myself when that thing might not be what my friend wants.

Keep enjoying what you are doing and have a very Happy New Year.
