There are loads, literally loads of books written by adventure motorcycle riders, I have tried to compile the definitive list.
I stopped using rim strips years ago as it can add time and annoyance on the trail if you get a flat, getting it to stay aligned with the center of the rim, getting the hole aligned and also them snapping.
It’s obvious that some don’t understand ‘less is more’ when it comes to riding and travel when some bikes are packed to excess – we’ve all seen the photos
where could I take my motorcycle on this planet and write about it because you’ve never heard anyone riding there before?
The perfect adventure motorcycle, is there such a thing? No, because everybody is different and one size does not fit all.
After the lake the sun dropped and the temperature dropped quicker, the track became worse or maybe it was my imagination, the headlight was making the track look like it was lined with basketball size rocks with the huge shadows it created.
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.
Its straight into the good stuff, and before you know it you are riding dirt tracks with drops that will end you
The dirt tracks we nothing short of spectacular with views across the mountains and valleys for days, we could stop for a few minutes and pick tracks that looked fun
All we knew was that it was freezing and getting colder by the minute, all that was around at that altitude hanging out was us and Vicuñas, they can have it, we’ll come back on a warmer day to have another look.
