  1. Appreciate the mention Dan, but at this time I’m not sure when I’ll be back in the US. Ideas to enable continued travel are rampant now. The math shows that for the same basic $$ that it’ll take to ride back to Ohio I can ship the bike to S Africa and make it into Europe before the money runs out.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    We’re talking about how the bike feels in the hands of its new owner, not how you feel.

    Stop. Please don’t turn this into a discussion about how our bike felt in the hands of other forum members. It’ll get ugly fast lol

    Hola Pauly. Paging Pauly

    And you too Jim. No answer to “normal” texts. Messenger or WhatsApp? install WhatsApp Jim. I’d love to say hey and congratulations to n your recovery. This “forum” won’t suffice lol

    Hola Pauly. Paging Pauly

    My old number is history (unless I re-up TMobile when I return which is doubtful. They suck Jim’s remaining ball) attached is my current number , which will change in Chile in a week or so. use this number to connect on WhatsApp

    Hola Pauly. Paging Pauly

    You aren’t replying to text messages any longer. it would be nice to be able to chat once in a while. My phone now has a Peru SIM. And I don’t have international calls. But using messenger or WhatsApp (preferred) calls and even video chats are easy and cheap. Anyways. Miss ya man

    Let's help a brotha out.(EDIT: FUND RAISER ENDED)

    Thank you to all the friends at OR who contributed to the fund Tim set up. Aside from allowing me to replace the Nikon (something I wasn’t going to do, at least not right away, and not with something as nice as the Nikon I broke) it also helped me get back on track again budget-wise was I’ve had a few unforeseen setbacks recently that set me back more than expected. It really was an eye-opening experience to see not only how quickly the amount raised was reached, but also helped me reconnect with some of you emotionally. I’m happy to see that so many from here are following my exploits online elsewhere, and am looking forward to the day some time in the future where I’m back in Ohio and we can all have a few beers and share stories from the road. It’s not easy being on the road this long continually. Even moreso when doing it solo. Checking in to OR occasionally helps me stay grounded in my past, as so many of you were involved in the evolution of my riding goals and being able to someday fulfill them. From the bottom of my heart, thank you all. Timmy is something special. That’s for sure.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    I rode my bike some more. Peru just keeps on giving. I’m attempting to ride all unpaved mountain “death roads” through the back route to the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu/Cusco to avoid paying for the expensive train ride.

    no worries. This is their top of the line X ring rated at over 18,000 tensile. I've already put around 900 hard miles on it and it feels like silk. Thanks for the warning though. Down here you take whatever chain you can find usually. I lucked out that they had the complete chain/sprocket set for the DR650 in stock, as well as the exact tires I wanted.
