    What did you do to your bike today?

    I rode the entire Apache Trail, including the whole 32 mile off road section. Was insane!

    Chain lube myth

    I’ve always used motor oil like Suzuki recommends. And like gear oil, any fling just wipes clean.

  11. So it’s a very informative podcast from a RTW overlanding perspective, but didn’t cause me more concern than I already have (which is plenty) Mainly because I’ll be sailing across the Darien Gap in both directions, and part of the fee for passage includes all Aduena (Customs) paperwork including insurance and is done by the Captain, so when they winch my bike onto the dock, whether in Carti Panama heading North or Cartegena Columbia on the Southbound leg, I can get on and ride away. That guy and his wife in the Podcast were set up as part of an inside job in the airport Aduena. The Aduena woman at the window withheld a specific document (which he admits he failed to check on) and was in cahoots with fake Aduena people who tried to extort the $3000 because he didn’t have said document Harrowing nonetheless. I was stopped and shaken down for bribes by Mexican Policia twice. Both times negotiated to a much lower bribe and moved on. Was also stopped and the bike strip searched by Federales, who said they thought I was a Yankee mule loaded with drugs coming from Cancun to the US (I was kinda in the area, visiting Aztec ruins at Palenque)
  12. Thanks Bubba! Really appreciate it! not familiar with this podcast. Listening now.
