5000 miles/ 8000km review of Motoz Rallz and I cut the up at the end to see whats left!
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
all riders have an opinion on what their perfect bike is for RTW travel, choose what makes you want to ride it every day, if stock doesn’t do it for you, modify!
Time for a new bike for me, a 2016 500exc Six Days, time to prep it and get it ready for a RTW journey
On incline starts and general climbs in the sand, it really was a great help making riding a breeze, where a normal knobby would have taken a little more concentration on my part.
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.
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.
