First one is on the ferry to Java from Bali - fully loaded up
LOL - mostly I wash it myself. I washed it mid-trip when I was staying at that mansion because I was a bit freaked out about the silicate volcanic ash that had gotten everywhere on the bike after my trip up to the caldera. It was like sand paper.Very cool trip. What did the horsemen think of your moto. Someone did a nice job of washing your bike at the end.
Thanks again.@Ibex250R -well I did post some here, which you commented on
You do need to do a bit of welding and bending. BAsically I used perforated steel bars as brackets for the racks. For the extra support at the back for the top box would be better to use tubular steel rods though.
You are absolutely right about adventure - it's why I got hooked into being a photographer for the last 3 decades!Adventure is about discovering new perspective and you don't have to ride 12,000 miles to do that. I think its great when people leave their comfort zone be it 100 or 100,000 miles
Thanks for the topcase/luggage info. I would like to incorporate something like that for my next long distance trip. I loved the pictures and look forward to some day riding in that part of the world.
When I was deciding what big trip to do; east asia was second behind the artic circle. I would love to fly out and buy/rent a small 125 and explore those areas.
Did you keep track of gas/incidental cost? I've been better about it in recent road trips and have found it helps you plan future trips when you have a better budget template to go by
I have to admit that I feel the same way. While there is nothing wrong with an interest in blinging-out ones ride - I'm more interested in reading about adventures. It would be nice to have a trip report section on this forum. I'd likely be spending a lot of time there.Good to see the pictures and read the explanations of some unusual countryside.
What people do on their bikes, and where they go, interests me more than how people tart them up and the first wobbles of squids.
Myself also..really needed the boxes for my stuff..yours looks very niceHey Rio thanks for posting, it looks like a nice place to ride and enjoy the 250. I searched for pictures of the rack set up and did not find any. Have you posted close up pictures of the Givi mounting rack? for others who may be considering the cases (myself included)
Well the only times I have ridden in the western and northern hemispheres hemispheres it has been either late spring or summer. I was on another forum and these guys are all talking about tyre warmers and I had no idea such things existed - after all these decades!!!!Rio,
Great pics !!! Makes me wish I was in a warmer climate ALL THE TIME !!! LOL
