Why Not

Since many of my subscribed threads are closing soon this seems like a good place to spend the next year & ahalf.

And the fact that I'm not a social animal, here is a good place to be as any, after this is a TEAM PYNDON ride.It will be just like dejavu all over again.

Life on the road is busier than expected!

So, first of all my apologies for not updating this place recently. I intended to keep a running blog here but to be honest, man can only do so much and I also wanted to make a complete video series of my endeavours also. Anybody who has done this before will know how long it takes, not only capturing the raw footage but also doing all the editing etc.

I have covered almost 20,000km so far on my KTM 690 Rally and I absolutely love it! I am currently in Kyrgystan.

I have decided on two things:

1) Video footage and episodes take priority and they will be released weekly from this point forwards sharing everything from building the bike right through to spontaneous happenings on my adventures.

2) Photo's and text will be captured along the way but it is likely that I will write an e-book about my RTW adventures after the fact, rather than a live blog. I need to focus my time on the video side of things. Regular updates will be posted on Facebook etc and I will endeavour to cross post here also, maybe just as links but they will be here somewhere!

Anyway, enough of that, here is a taster of things to come with a trailer.......

I have filmed all the details of my riding gear choices and it will all be revealed in later video episodes but for now I can confirm that I chose to wear the Klim Overland suit. A number of reasons really but the main ones weight and simplicity, two factors that I considered really important for my adventure including bike choice / build.

I will use traditional armour and MX gear for racing, since I have to get tyres shipped to the races, I will ship my race helmet, boots, protection and clothing to the races also.

For travelling:
- Klim Overland jacket and pant - grey
- Arai Tour-X4
- Sidi Adventure Boot
- Klim Adventure Glove

For Racing:
- Klim Mohave in-the-boot pants and jersey
- Suomi MR Jump Helmet
- Ariette Goggles
- Alpinestar Tech 10 Boots
- Asterisk Cell Knee Braces
- Leatte Carbon Pro neck brace
- Klim Dakar Glove

Nice vids. I don't blame you for going carburated for your journey. Never had problems with the FI on my bike but that is surely the safest way to go. Safe travels.
