As a matter of interest - I bought handlebar raisers before the trip and it helped a lot as my back wasn't so stiff. 

I also have to be much fitter next time as fituge played a big role - or maybe it was he heat . . . . . and drink much more water

U should have had a daily SWIM like the rest of us!!!!!

Plonker - Tyres. Before this trip i had Battle Wings on and they are a nightmare in the dirt. Slightly better if you deflate. The Hydenhaus i put on before the trip are awesome. Good grip on tar and excellent for what we did. Was like riding a different bike. Im sold on them. Now just to see what K's I get out of them. My only complaint is the road noise off the front tyre on the tar and that at 160 i start to get a slight shake on the steering with these. Did not have that problem with the Battlewings. 220 steady as if on rails.

As an alrounder i think the Hydenhaus are going to be a very good buy.
