    I feel like I'm slowly turning into a couch GS'r. Especially when I just bought the 1200 and stuck 2k of crap on it. It's perfect for any tour now, but I don't have the other stuff to make it happen.

    Have a good one.
    1. the house and others like it will still be there when you get back
    2. the house will be cheaper by the time you get back so you'll need less deposit
    3. what else do you need? if you don't have panniers I'll lend you a waterproof Ortlieb bag and straps to put your gear on the back of your bike
    4. to me this is a real adventure holiday - no guide, open roads, good company, prospect of stunning scenery, 10 blokes to a room, offroad if you want it, your bike will run better when you get back, did I mention 10 blokes to a room
    5. probably the cheapest way to do Morocco - this is my second trip to the best adventure playground and it's like no other
    6. you'll get a sticker - maybe

    Just do it, life is a series of chapters, not a series of deposits.

    Doesn't that says it all ... you can be back ... but you may miss out on home ownership.

    You've got to go. We need to be certain that there's going to be at least one disaster on this trip.

    So how's the prep going? had a new rear Tourance fitted, had a good run down to Goodwood just to ensure the panniers didn't fall off at 90mph but was bloody cold with the Rally2(ie Twat suit), looks like I need something warmer for the 1500mile trek. Muffs?
