Two KTM around the World!

43 days to go! I thought it was time to post something here to share with you the last part of the planning

So to make it short, we're two mates leaving in 43 days for one year and 60.000km around the World with our bikes, two KTM 990 Adventure

Here is the route, Africa then Americas:





And here is our website where we'll post articles with tons of pictures every 10 or 15 days : Ride the World, The Hard Way!

I'll keep this post updated during the preparation and during the trip, each time we'll post a new article on our blog I'll post it here too

Currently we're dealing with paperworks...

I hope you'll enjoy the story! One thing is sure, nothing ever goes as is planned

Suggestion:

Las Vegas is so terrible that I suggest you leave your bikes at a dealership in LA, fly to LV/return, and continue up the coast. The ride to LV is even terrible. Look forward to your report....Bruce

We could make it to Paraguay for a beer
We're free to change the initial route as we want during the trip, we'll see if we can meet when we'll be in South America
If we can make it, we will !

Bon chance!

Do you have a plan to get through (or around) Libya? I've heard no visas are being issued now.

Check out this thread on HUBB:

Have a safe ride!
