Awesome! How long did it take? Do you have a more detailed thread, perhaps on ADVrider?

This reminds me of the documentary "Long Way Down", with Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman. Absolutely awesome show.

I happen to think that was a pretty awesome adventure report. Not because it was on a WRR, but because it was an awesome ride report.

Probably left everyone hanging around, hoping for more.

The mountain stuff really appeals to me; the mud/jungle stuff says "don't bother". But I am well known for having an antipathy towards any riding involving mud. No apolgies offered.

Got more pics and stuff for us?

Minus all the support vehicles and crews, medic, security officers, fixers, and guides, of course...

Not knocking anyone's ride, but a solo, unsupported ride is a very, very different animal indeed.

And far higher on my "Holy shyte" scale of admiration.

Also he didnt have Ewan's bank account to work with!! 30K miles is an insane amount of miles.

This was a fantastic review....short story. I think you and the WR were the perfect partners. You were good to each other and respected each others limitations and made the most. What a unbelievable open ended adventure. I felt good about my WR before, but now feel even more delighted I have one in the garage. When I do my 30 mile commute to Seattle I will think of you and your wide open view of the world. Thanks for sharing and very safe travels. cheers

I've been avoiding this post as I was afraid it would cause a serious case of jealousy... I was right.

Fantastic ride! Hope you get the girl back together sooner than later and get her home!

very cool ride & report.. lotsa cajones for this one. ..glad the wr worked for such an epic ride.. thanks for proving that. I liked the pics.. of course all of us would like the long version, but writing long detailed ride reports is a lot of work, & some people have a life. I'm glad you made it through ok.. some brushes with injury it sounds like, but nothing permanent.

I've often thought a lighter bike would be useful with many of the water crossings you get in the jungle.. you confirmed that.

Thanks again for the great post & pics.

It seems to me a bike like the WR would be much more familiar to most people (mechanics) in South America. It does however seem like newer and bigger bikes are making their way down there but your paying big bucks for them (and the repairs). Finding someone to work on the WR should be relatively easy. Parts however is another story. Thanks for posting your trip, its really amazing.
