I'd like to transplant a 390duke motor into my 530Exc. That'd be a bike perfect for RTW trips.

PS : Noah's got some moves there on the floor. Thanks for not posting the remainder of the strip dance pics.

Now that I haven't worked in over 2 years, I have been finding creative ways to supplement my income.

I do a lot of winter riding in Spain and Morocco, much of which can be at altitude, and I am an enthusiastic fan of Tucano gear.

In case anyone googles this, the gauchos that fit the KTM 690 Enduro are the R119 model, and the neoprene muffs that fit with the KTM end bar weights are the R361 model.

Did you ever tally up how much year 2 cost? I seem to remember you did better than expected on the first year.

About the same as last year. 3 months in Japan was quite similar to 3 months in Europe... even a little cheaper if I don't lump in my shipping and flights to see family. SEA was cheap but also easy to spend money if you get picky. Having a passenger to keep happy defiantly added to the lodging cost and I wasn't carrying my camping gear. Its crazy how some places $150 will last me for a week... and other days, especially if i'm buying parts for the moto ($60 for a dulop hd tube in java) the money just evaporates. Indonesia is cheap. $1 to $3 for meals. Less then $10 for accommodations most places. Bali is touristy so the price is more. If you want western food, you will pay $10 per meal. If you eat with the locals, you will pay $3.

I know this isn't really what you are asking.. but I don't really like the money question lately. Lots of people have been asking me in person here. "You must be rich.. how can you travel around the world for 2 years".

My reply was usually "No wife or kids and I was saving to buy a house". But lately if someone is being a dick about it, I've been saying something like "Its amazing what you can do if you are not a slacker". Of course I would never say this to a local. The South east Asian people love to ask how much stuff costs. But a $10k motorcycle is a concept most people cant wrap their head around. So my bike cost me $3k when someone asks. They still say "Wow.. so much money".

It's really none of their business so I'd answer however I felt at the moment. You're not lying if answering a dream notional.

You guys are hilarious. I've been cleaning my bike for 2 days to go to Australia. I needed a good laugh.

I forgot to mention.. chicks dig KTMs. "I'll marry you if you buy me a KLR"... Said no woman ever.

Heck Guy,
You really need that kind of bike for what you do with it. Me, not so much. I don't care what you spend or ride. Just keep on keeping on and reporting on your travels. Been a fan since day one, ain't gonna change that. ;-)
