The "hair" is actually a traditional Georgian hat made from sheep. Looks hilarious though.

noah, here's the carnet cost calculator so you can do some figuring LINK -

don't remember if you were doing anymore of africa later in your trip than your jaunt into Morocco gave you a taste and make you want to go back - if so you might want to read John's ride report of Africa last year to see how he managed to get around the whole continent and not have a carnet at all, could save you a fortune - an amazing read too LINK

Used it today in a river near Gudauri. Not sure if there was anything in there now.. or if there ever was. there is quite a bit of construction for a new hydro plant so the fish population might be screwed.

Great to hear you still have your rod with you. When you make it here to New Zealand, the quality of fishing you will experience will put a smile on your face. New Zealand has world class sight fishing, here's a wee teaser vid

Really enjoying your thread

Keep well brother...

I'm on page 51 and I have to say that this is one heck of a RR. What a rough start to your trip in Europe but what an amazing community we have here on adv and in Europe. Glad to see you on two wheels again my friend. Count me in as well to the list of followers!!!

Later
John

My next ADV bike will be another 690 or a custom thumper. Think KTM exe frame with rally fairing and a duke 390 motor. 42 hp is enough for me.
Maybe the new 450 adventure bike from (admittedly somewhat obscure) British manufacturer CCM will be your cup of tea then!
130 kg dry, 17 litre tank, BMW powerplant wtih ~40 hp. Supposedly goes into production in May this year. Retails for 7995.

There's also a thread about here on ADVRider.

Yes, this bike is sweet. I saw cad drawings of it when I was at the Rally Raid UK shop this last summer. I would love to put this bike through the paces. Unfortunately, I doubt it will make it to the US. If its a big hit, maybe big manufacturers will follow.

Good to see CCM coming back to bigger bikes, the 640 was a hoot from a few years ago, was/is part owned by Carl fogarty's wife

Oh and that looks tasty

There probably is a market for that type of bike, but not at that price or at that weight.



Anyway, back on topic...Noah, great trip report. I've read it start to finish over the last few days (not at work!), and it's been a great read all the way through. Just one quick question if you have the time: I'm curious as to how you plan where you're going to sleep for the night. Are you basically rolling into towns and sorting it out on the fly, or is it more organized? And as for camping, are you stealth-camping or is that planned as well?
