Whew. I'll be taking a nice long break from ADV after this.

Thanks for sharing another great adventure Kelly

Fantastic RR & great ADV in my favorite kind of terrain! Really like the Hodaka sticker on Medium Wan's XRL. Old school for sure

I think Bartek might secretly or not so secretly have a closet small bike fetish



LittleWan I can only assume this addition was from BigWan so he would smile every time he looked through the screen.

Great ride through some wide open country WanGan Style
Another excellent TR thanks for all the hard work, and to think all the guys have to do is press the button on the Gopro

Really enjoyed it. Thanks Kelly and all the guys.

Glad the Ridgeline trunk popped loose. Sausage photos are classic.

Hi superhobie!
Wow, I recognize Catavina - that was only taken last year??
Smartek looks so young! He's aged a lot since he started riding with us Wans...
Sorry, Bartek.

Also - thanks for the cool WanGan style image!! Excellent job!

Nope.
It's a road trip, but in the truck and not for fun.











So, I forgot to mention this -
After that hard hit on the poleline road...
We still had this weird rubbing noise on the bike. It sounded like something was hitting.
Matt was worried we had bent the forks or broken the frame...
Oh, crap. We can't get a new bike every 30- 35,000 miles!
We worried about it all the way back.






But, since getting home he took a better look and seems like it was just the kickstand.
The kickstand relocator got bent back (or up and back?) and it was rubbing on the chain.
It stopped making the weird noise at least.
Hopefully that's it.
Matt hasn't had time to take the tanks off or anything.
We still could have a nasty surprise in store...



I'm starting to worry that we need to stockpile 990 frames or something.
We definitely need to keep some spare rims around.

Already, that hit gave Rade's new excel A60 some "flare" and now we owe him a rebuild.
Gah!
Sorry, Radek. We'll get that taken care for you....





OK, guys - thanks again and see you around!

Hi Richard!
yes, thank you so much for "Smartek!"

It was especially appropriate because it has meaning in Poland!
Bartek said it's what you call a bratty, mouthy kid...like a "Smart aleck"
(Anyway, I think that was right - Bartek? Did I understand that correctly?)


Whatever the reason, El Bartek Smartek seems to like the nickname,
and it is sticking!


Enjoy "gettin' dirty"!
