Well, I have to say...I love the Tiger....... but I've been having a serious stalling issue, which seems to be getting worse. Very tough in a crowded city amoungst a throng of people. Let yesterday in Antigua!

Wouldn't of been nearly as serious if I wasn't in the middle of nowhere with no dealer close by. I'm in Guatemala city right now, and they're checking out my baby. Hopefully all will be good by the end of the day.

I didn't post on here since I last updated the blog, so there was more to read there awhile ago, and I will try and post again very soon. Probably by tomorrow.

take care,
Clay D

Tiger software
 
I think there was a re-mapping software update for that stalling business; best if you ask the dealer to check what version should be loaded.

mapping
 
Hey again,

Yes, I had the Tiger in before and had the mapping updated, but thanx for mentioning that.

I just got back from the dealer and the Tiger will be ready in less than and hour. They said the problem was just a dirty contact in the ignition switch. I hope they got it, because it's a long way to Argentina with a stalling bike!

Looks like you had some good adventures yourself. when's the next big trip?

ciao,

Clay D

trip
 
Great to see this blog - I read through the whole thing last night.

I'm planning a similar trip next year.

By the way, in case you have not heard they are re-opening the ferry boat service from Colon Panama to Cartanega, Columbia in the middle of May. This will be a huge savings in cost.

Hey Jim,
The trip has been great so far. I've met so many cool people and seen so much. I'm realizing you can never have enough time for this trip, but I'm going to make do with what I have.
I'm just trying to secure passage south, but if the ferry re-opens for the return trip that would be great.

hope to hear from you again,
Clay D
PS: I just posted again recently and should have another update really soon.

I'm so far behind I can see my own ass, but I did finally get some more up on the blog.

Hope all you fellow riders are doing well and if anyone is in far South Peru or Bolivia please drop me a line.

loving the journey! :funmeteryes:

more updates
 
Hey Guys,

Here in La Paz, Bolivia with a broken bike. The upside is I had time to mountain bike death road, climb huayna potosí at 6088meters and I can blog a bit.

hope you all are doing well!

hey there
 
so sorry I missed your post before. So, the Tiger was doing great up until recently. There had been a few minor things, but just as I got to La Paz, Bolivia my chain came off and damaged my engine case. I was having a real hard time getting a new chain and sprockets and thought I'd make it here and then deal with it but....not so much.

Anyway, I'm getting some temp repairs done and hopefully that will get me to Buenos Aries.
