These are pictures of Mitch and his dad, Andrew. They arrived in Claremont to pick up two KLR's and ride the bikes to New York.

Of course we had to take them up to Newcomb's Ranch!

Container is supposed to go on the ship 10th June. That 5 months wait is crazy! Plus a big journey ahead. It's not a direct sail from Ushuaia to Los Angeles...it's three different ships!

Hi Tuckers,
Hope all is well!

Question: I see you used a 525 chain and sprocket set. Apparently in SA, 525 is rare and 520 is the common type.

Any opinions on the matter?

Thanks!

Well I guess my opinion is stick with the OEM. We did carry spare sprockets and a spare chain each though. I checked the chains daily, and I adjusted them as needed. I lubed them about twice a week. We didn't use any extra sprockets or chains in 13,000 miles.
I cut the front sprocket covers to check it without removing anything and I cut the chain guards shorter to lube the chains easier.

I spent the $ and got a new DID x ring chain and new sprokets. Have also installed a drip feed chain oiler I got from DSM8. I have been surprised that chain hardly has needed any adjustment in over a thousand miles.
By the way, how you Tucker's doing. I really enjoyed hanging with ya's and the fun rides we did. I'll be in Mexico in the next few days. What I have seen of the US has been amazing. Hard place to leave....but in the words of Arnie......"I'll be back"

We are doing great.
You'll have a blast in Mexico. Will you go down Baja?...you should. Go through San Felipe and on to Coco's corner...it's really nice.
If you stop in Guerro Negro that's the place the whales birth. It's about half way to La Paz.
Keep in touch.
