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.

No qualification required, your adventure-cred is firmly established.

Fook no.
I didn't go off the bridge. That was good enough for me.
