ADVENTURIZING A KTM 500EXC FOR RTW RIDING – PART 2

What made it, what didn’t?

…reviews of products and gear so far.

I think A to F is a good way to go, cause most of us have been to school and we know getting an F is as bad as it gets, but obviously YMMV.

All parts and gear was reviewed for 7000 miles

Peru Offroad – Part 2

Having lunch in a tiny little Puebla we look at the map to see where looks like an interesting route, we are sitting looking south and find a place called Pallasca, it’s taking the 3N and it looks to have a crazy section.

Peru Offroad – Part 1

Its straight into the good stuff, and before you know it you are riding dirt tracks with drops that will end you

Ecuador Offroad – Part 2

Riding a remote desolate dirt track somewhere around the Chimborazo volcano in the Ecuadorian Andes, Paul and I were talking how remote it felt. The track ran along the endless green highland grasslands and hills, zigzagging around jagged peaks and crossing small valleys. It felt like we were the only humans on Earth: the howling winds ruffled the grass, and there was no sight of any human activity – no houses in the distance, not even a pasture fence.

Suddenly, turning a corner, we saw a tiny figure walking down the dirt road. As we rolled towards the little silhouette, we realized it was a small girl wearing a traditional Andean costume. She held a tatty rope in her hands.

Colombia Offroad – Part 2

From Guatape to Medellin we took a dirt track via Alejandria and Conception until we met the pavement, it had rained the night before and lots of baby heads for the whole way
