Happy new year

I wish you a happy new year. If you ever pass by here in northern Germany, you have a bed, a tent spot, a shower, breakfast, laundry and so on...

Thanks for all the New Years wishes! It is 7:30 pm here in Hawaii so I'm jumping the gun a little bit

I've had a great time on the island with family. I didn't get on a motorcycle the whole time and I'm itching again. We have been helping my sister clear invasive plants off her coffee farm to help get it back to good production. I fly out early tomorrow morning and I'll be in Hanoi on the 3rd. I'll have about 1 month in Vietnam on a little honda.

My bike is in storage in Phnom Pen. I'll be back there around the end of Jan for about a week. Some friends of mine asked me to talk at their school. I also have some new parts to install on the bike... including a new stator, new Mosfet Reg/rec and a Baja Design Onx light bar. 4x 10 watt LED... Should tell people "Get the fook out of my lane!"

This is the first time I have seen crash bars on a 690. Thoughts? Is it worth looking at or not even worth it? (they're custom)

I like crash bars when I'm riding alone and tip over I can get my leg out from under the bike.

Look forward to the comprehensive install writeup for this lot.

Happy new year Noah. Been great following your trip over the past couple of years.
And if you get to New Zealand, there is a bed here for you in Dunedin.

Cheers
Trev.

Wow

Hey Noah, been reading along and I am blown away by your trip. I have a 530 EXC that I love, but as you know the oil capacity is shit, and I don't like changing oil every 2-3 days, but its great on single track, which we have a lot of in this state. Known I have wanted a 690 when a guy had one on the last Mexico to Canada ride I did. If your back in Portland OR and need a place to crash dont hesitate. No I am no a fucking hipster, I am one of the few who grew up here. When do you plan on making your way south down the Baja, and into south America? I must say I never thought I would be attracted to the desert growing up around so many trees, but Baja is some of my favorite riding. If your here in a year may be i'll get a 690 and go down through Baja with you, many of the roads I have memorized. Cheers, keep it coming.

Kasey
