    Well I was saved the embarrassment of dropping my bike in the rivers thanks to my good Geordie friends helping me across.

    The prized moment for me was my friend John Tilley - after dropping his 990 in the deep volcanic sand numerous times - ranting about ...

    "What's all this for .... just to see another fucking volcano"

    Priceless

    I don't know if you'll remember it Tim.

    I remember every moment Bill.
    From the moment we all first met I haven't laughed so much in a bike trip....then when they phoned Cabby with a Pakistani accent pretending to be from the bank and he was being charged the full amount at every fuel station

    Not sure if it would be the same for a 690 but, Martin at Torque racing recommends you zip tie a single clutch plate to your rad guard (you can just see it in this pic on my EXC)

    The idea being if your clutch goes you can put an extra plate in to pack it out

    i thought with our weather it pushed the jet stream north which I assume would bring numerous low pressure systems to that area.

    Does it only work if you cable tie it to the rad guard first?

    We are all here now for the second trip. Lots of airport shenanigans for 2 groups travelling yesterday. But they all managed to sort out different flights and even different airports, and got here in the end, some arriving at midnight last night. It took 4 hours to get Harold's bike released by customs because his original green card was only valid from today, Friday, so we had to forward a new one which covered yesterday as well. They really are that particular now.
    This was all because our flights were cancelled and we came a day earlier.
    Anyway we shall all meet up this morning and once the others have the bikes we shall be on our way.
