I think their memories have gone and they've forgotten a tyre change somewhere. The most I've got out of a K60 rear was about 8000 miles/12000 Kms and that was riding really easy.
Normal, not taking it easy, riding it would be done at 6K miles/9K Kms.

Heya Mike

Great to hear you are back home in one piece

NZ is a long way from everthing and we felt it when we started in Alaska.

Best for finding a new job mate

Iiny46 , we got 22500 km out of our last Heidy, 150 on a SE, we could have got another 1000 or so east tarmac km too, greatt adventure touring tire, they do nothing special but everything nice

Cheers Andi

Greetings Mike, this location was actually in "For Your Eyes Only".
Loved reading you RR, some great photography and truly informative narrative, most excellent!

It was a K60 and there was no tyre change in Europe

Maybe it is way I ride that helps, not being hard on either the throttle or brake?

I just found your RR, Mate, and am enjoying reading it. We are doing close to your trip next May for 6 to 8 weeks, mainly Western Europe and Morocco for first time over. Going to catch HU in the UK while we are there. We are Yanks and I just bought a used Triumph Trophy that in Heidelberg for riding over there. Cheers

Awesome, let us know if you have any questions etc that we can help with :-)

Enjoy the planning!

Thanks, Mike, I will. See you some time in NZ if I don't see you sooner. If you make it up to the states sometime, let me know.

Think I should become a lttle more calm in the age of 51

How did the K 60 work on wet roads ?

Thanks Andi, it is good to be home to Leanne, Kiwi roasts, marmite, vogels bread, kilo block of cheese..... I take my hat off to you and Ellen who are away from home for so long.

You guys are an inspiration

When you reach 54 the world changes and tyres last longer!

It is not the best in the wet, I have had it slip a couple of times.

We are listed in the "tent space" listing. If you (or anyone else out there) are in New Zealand we have plenty of room here to look after you.

A trip to the US is always a possibility (watching a NASCAR race live is on my bucket list - no don't judge me lol)

Where are you in the States?

By the way! You know what the best part of hiding money when you are away is? Finding €100 tucked away a week after you get home :-)

NASCAR is a favorite of mine as I grew up in Daytona Beach, FL, home of NASCAR.

We are now in Southern California, after having traveled the last four years throughout North America, working and playing. There are great roads all around us now. I accepted a job that gives me 16 weeks off a year to play, the tradeoff being I'm on call 24/7 when working.

Cheers

Where did you stay in Fez. Enjoying your RR. Cheers

It was funny, coming into Fez we were pursued by a chap on a scooter who knew of accommodation, guides etc etc. We could easily lose him as we left the traffic lights (zoom zoom) but he would catch up while we followed a very scenic route into Fez. Luckily as we disappeared into a parking garage, well looked after there (thank you again Carlos) he disappeared.

We have decided to have 3 nights in a Fez, have arranged a guide for tomorrow and will do our own thing on Tuesday. We will update this again Tuesday[/QUOTE]

I will find the details over the weekend (it was good as there was a secure parking garage nearby) and put the details here, and in a pm to you.

In Fez we had two Riads recommended to us by Carlos from Motoxplorers.com


1) Riad Dar Cordoba

darcordoba@gmail.com
Derb Guebbus 15-Batha
Fez – Morocco

PHONE: Tel. 00 212 535 638 340

www.darcordoba.com

2) This is next door to the one above and the one we stayed in as the first was full - Riad Dar Tizwa.

riadtizwa@googlemail.com

There is secure parking not far away from these.

Hope this helps

Mike
