3 weeks tomorrow, I will be somewhere in France already making my way towards Italy. Today I have been packing some of the last stuff I won’t need to go into storage. I hate packing .. it’s an awful job, but it’s slightly better than moving at least, as I don’t have to go unpack it somewhere now.
This past weekend, I have fitted new tyres, MITAS off road tyres and new heavy duty tubes. I have to say, it was really scary riding on these off road tyres on tarmac for the first time. It almost feels like you are riding on marbles, but it is getting better and I am sure I will get used to it … Good thing I fitted them now I think, this way I can bed them in a little and also gives me some time to adjust my riding style .. no more knee down round a bend – not like I did it before, but anyway 😉
We also have all our visas, except for me, I still need a schengen visa which I will get next week.
I’ve purchased an external 500GB compact Samsung HDD to make backups of photos/video while on the trip and to clean my SD cards to go back into my digital camera and GoPro video cameras. I have also ordered my spares from Motorworks which will probably arrive this week, then I am done as far as buying goes .. I hope !
