...not about my trip, of course, but about my bike choice. So far, I have been primarily researching the BMW R 1200 GS. But here and there, I am reading and hearing about the Yamaha Super Tenere, a rugged bike built for Adventure, similar to the GS. 1200 cc, with all the trimmings, large capacity fuel tank.
Actually quite a bit less expensive, too. the Super T is actually very popular in Europe, and made an impression at the Paris-Dakar race (now known only as the "Dakar"). But then again, shall I squeeze my German ass on a Sushi machine rather than a Bratwurst bomber? It's like rooting at the World Cups Germany - USA match for the US (June 26th, 13.00).
But then again...why not. I keep my options open for now.
