Thanks for taking us along

I do believe it's a lynx fairing-------google that and see what you find.

Hey Boys,

Well, I'm caught up with your adventure. Nice job on the ride report! Lots of us are enjoying it.

Mark, nice to meet you in Potosi. Always good to put a face with a name. Don't hold it against me that I was hanging out with Smitty!

We always rode very spread out---mostly to keep from eating each others dust. I like to ride this way personally even when following----gives you the freedom to ride as you want and go your own pace and not worrying about someone on your tale who might run into you if he's not paying attention.



I couldn't agree more Mark. Every bike with a loaded GPS and spare tubes is the key to making this happen.

50,000 miles on his WR250R----the motor has never been rebuilt and runs as new---awesome---mine is right behind his.
People with gold wings and such think nothing of this---but 50,000 miles on a 250 that has been pounded from Baja to the Arctic Ocean ????
I think it needs a round of applause !!!!!

Indeed !
