We refuelled in Uis and had a fizzy drink. The rest of the guys started arriving and unfortunately, @P.K. had a puncture






Team effort....... Thank goodness I was running Mousses front and rear.. :peepwall:

This part of the trip was real rough and unforgiving. An off here will likely cause severe damage to rider and bike. A breakdown without support will be catastrophic

Noneking, unfortunately ( or fortunately ) for you guys, all other trips in the future will be measured against this brilliant trip and will probably fall short by miles  8) I really enjoy the RR and beautiful scenery.

@Dwerg - how was the Leatt Body Armour - temperature wise?

Itís not the coolest but I prefer it over an adventure jacket for temperature and of course protection. Iíve used it for offroad riding, racing and some touring over the last 4 or so years and itís saved me from injury so many times. The Leatt jacket is mesh on the torso section but not sleaves and airflow is great as long as you are moving. Sleaves are removable if it getís too hot but I leave them on for thorn protection which they do pretty well. Not as cool as an MX shirt but I use the rear jacket pockets for sunscreen, hat and sometimes shorts and slops and a few other bits and bobs. Itís a bit less practical in terms of getting dressed and undressed compared to an adventure jacket obviously. My body armour is way past due as you can see in the pics and Iíll probably go for the Airfit Lite model this tome round for touring. Riding just with that will be the coolest protection but the thorns will stuff up the suit and your arms

I packed my Leatt 5.5 Body armour and MX shirts, but ended up only wearing it on the first day because I tend to overheat in it. Mine is a real mission to take off, especially if I've been sweating. (I also lent it to someone for an enduro race and it now has a funky smell which I've not been able to get rid of). My BMW suit gives awesome protection (apart from chest protection) and I would just take it off at longer stops to keep cool. Once moving it has fair ventilation.

My wife has begged me to finish the RR this weekend as she feels my head is still in Nam and not at home...... :deal:
