Love the XT Tourist. Had one myself back in '76. One of the most fun bikes I ever had.

This is one of the most compelling photographs I have seen in years. It reminds me of early National Geographic work.

Yes, you missed it. Page 13, post 192, penultimate paragraph...

"Mahmoud back at the guesthouse in my final days offers me to store my bike there for if I ever want to come back for it one day, In'shallah! which gives me the idea of doing exactly that. .... Mahmoud's offer sticks with me and today as I write this it is even stronger gathering more and more momentum the longer I am here. I Can't commit to anything just yet... but keep an eye out for Part 2 next spring."
