Hey, nice to see someone else that has a DRZ. I love mine. How is it doing for the long day in day out riding. I know I am off topic, but am curious. Unfortunatly my boss insists I show up to work before he will pay me. I don't know why, I never do anything while I'm there!

maarten. sounds all good. i'm not sure if there is a problem with this computer or your email link, but i couldn't send this direct through your website. what's your address┬┐
i'm in vina del mar until tomorrow and then into santiago to pick up a set of tires. i don't suppose you came across a 21" front and 18" rear set of tires in your search for filter oil by chance┬┐ after santiago, i want to get a look at aconcagua. after that, no definate plans. how about yourself? jode. jkidmose@hotmail.com

I am headed your way, but won't be in Chile for a while. I'm shooting for TdF arond 1st of year, but am thinking that will be rushing too much. Keep in contact.
PS I'm on XR650L and like it dirty, too.

Back on the road again.

Hi Dave and Sam,

Right now I am in Argentina, La rioja (north-west.. above cordoba on hw 68)
Slowely I am going south to Viedma (arend we all?)
From here I go to Mendoza, via Valee de la luna (yes, also in AR. they have one)
Also comming very close to Santiago to see the Puente de Inca (argentina side of the border)
en then kind of cross over to the east-coast to viedma...

Anyway... something like that... My plans exist from day to day... the only sure thing is I will be in Viedma on 5 december... or I will be dead (I am betting on the first one)

Hope to see you there (I,ll also drop you a mail)

Maartino
