    nice trip.. you guys should use tubeless tyres (if there are any) for any such future expeditions... good luck
    What have you been grateful for today..?

    Hi again Dr. Yaqub,

    I hope I didn't leave you with the impression that I didn't have fun on the trip. I enjoyed every moment of our adventure and I'd do it again in a heartbeat, and on the same bike!

    That said, I am enjoying the new GS and I'm currently investigating the purchase of the police rear rack, along with their lockable hard cases. With the rack I think I'll be able to fabricate some larger hard cases for the longer journeys. How is your pannier project coming along?

    @ TrueEye, unfortunately you require you require purpose-built rims to mount tubeless tires, so we're stuck with tubes which is not necessarily a bad thing, unless you buy the ones made by a shoe company.

    Cheers, Richard

    Yep, you're right about the rims.. but my point is that in an event of a puncture (as you guys experienced on your way back), no matter how good a tube you're using, it wouldn't help the tyre to stay inflated for as long as a tubeless tyre would in any such circumstance (at least thats the way they work in cars, and i'm sure they wouldn't behave any differently in motorbikes too).. so it wouldn't be as much a hassle in any such eventuality that you guys had to go through.. imagine having to fix a puncture on the rear tyre..
    What have you been grateful for today..?

    I didnt mean that, i was just referring to the frequent stops we had to make due to overheating of CG.

    I have abandoned the hard pannier project. I think soft ones will be much easier to handle.

    All good Dr. Yaqub,

    The only problem with the soft bags is the inability to lock them. I'm hoping I'm on to something with the police racks, but I'll keep you posted.

    TrueEye, tubeless tires certainly have their advantages, just ask BMW GS riders (I used to be one, BTW). The problem is the expense of the tires and, if you plug a flat, it's recommended that you toss the tire as soon as possible. If you don't want to do that, the safest thing is to put a tube in it and then you are no farther ahead. And if you've ever tried to pull a tubeless tire off a rim, trail side, you'll discover what an pain this is. Ultimately, swapping a tube on one of these local Pakistani bikes is relatively easy, by comparison, once you do it a few times.

    Cheers, Richard
