It been a while...
I got back from my second trans Africa by XT600 a few months ago and now the bug is biting again so hard that new plans must be put into motion. As much as i love my Tenere I cannot forget my trusty old steed, the XT500 that Ive had for so many years and so my next trip (Cape Town to North pole or CT up West down East coast Africa.. not decided yet) is officially in the pipeline again.
I would love to hear from any "old timers" out there who have done long hard trips on their 500's. How was it, what went wrong,what went well, what did you modify, what tank did you take etc. The more info the better.
Any reply much appreciated! Thanks,
