I kind of mean, what are your limits with ambition in terms of reliability with it, i.e. would you take it 1000km through the Sahara desert alone and trust that it should get to the end without anything catastrophic stopping you that you alone could not fix

I plan on riding this bike for another 75,000km solo. When something breaks, I'll fix it.

Noah, your travel story is amazing!!! I had to read all ~130 pages over 3-4 days, couldn't put it down. Your photography is very captivating.

I'll be following with interest, especially now when you travel through Russia. Some of the places you describe bring back good memories from not that long ago...

Safe travels!!

Oh yeah... If you happen to be back in Missoula and have time, I'd love to meet.

BMW just posted this on Facebook and I recognize somebody Noah, what are you thinking here? This photo need a caption



KTM should seriously be posting pics of Noah as well. Fishfund single-handedly convinced me not to buy one but Noah is changing my mind. With the exact same bike!

He is thinking ... Joe will never get this overweight piece of steel to the Vitim Bridge - even if he is an offroad instructor :)

Where to?

Noah, man, you are in our thoughts as you prepare yourself and your bike for the next leg. After reading Colebatch's and other RR, it looks like you are in for a real treat (looking forward to hearing your take on the crossing of the famous Vitim Bridge )!

Will you be riding the Road of Bones to Magadan after the BAM?

One to your health:

Hey Noah,

Can't wait for the next set of photos and stories. Love reading your ride report.
I'm curious, I have a 690 Enduro R as well and I'm wondering which luggage setup you prefer.

The Giant Loop Great Basin with the Wolfman Luggage system

or

What you are running now with the Giant Loop Siskiyou Panniers


I have the Rally Raid soft luggage rack and am about to pick up my soft luggage but would like to know the thoughts of a pro.

(If it helps I will be turning my 690 into an adventure bike, RR evo 2 kit, and pretty well everything else that will bolt on).

[QUOTE=live2ridetahoe;19239291]How did the repair on the Badland's suit come out? Did you get them back yet? Photos please....

Do you have any updates for us? How is the prep for the upcoming trip going?

JG[/QUOTE

If it is not too much to ask, what did they charge you to fix the Klim jacket and pants? Thanks.

Small update

Sorry about the small response. Internet is well..

We are in Taksimo. It has been raining for 3 days. We have had some interesting water crossings, "bridge" crossings and 2 railroad bridges to get here. We tried to dry out as much as possible.. hopefully tomorrow the sun is out so the Vitam bridge is dry


The BAM road is under there somewhere...


Wet wood.. on nobblies.. so fun!
I'm not gunna lie.. we walked the bikes across these bridges. On a dry day maybe we would ride... maybe.
