Kev has just received the 8 litre collapsable fuel bladders we are going to use as dual purpose fuel and buoyancy for any deep river crossings we may have to attempt on the eastern BAM.
Well the container has been delivered, next step is to get it certified for shipping. Gary is sorting all this out, what a top bloke he is!
Container has now been ordered and Garry is expecting delivery next week at his place where it can be stored and racked out.
Things are moving forward, pictures to follow.
The 2014 trip is slowly developing, we will purchase a 20 foot container and rig it out to maximise space for bikes, spares, and kit.
There will be extra space for 4 to 6 bikes so if anyone is interested in shipping both ways or even one way then contact us.
We have put the info on various sites, HUBB and UKGSer’s
Winter is slowly creaping up on us and we have started to update, modify, and fix our equipment for next years trip from the lessions learnt for 2012.
Kev has just taken delivery of his new Rally Raid EVO2 upgrade kit for his 690, and installed the tanks and headlight conversion kit ( all with just a hammer and chisel! ).
The EVO2 tanks hold around the same capacity of fuel (10 ltrs) but hug the frame which makes for a narrower profile and the fuel sits a little lower. Another advantage is they ae quicker to remove as there are no KTM side panels, plus they look cool!
The dual headlight is just plan cool looking!
Next will be a set of BAM riders graphics for it.
Just starting to sort out the blog for our 2014 Eastern BAM trip, been reading black_labb’s (HUBB) reports and the road / rivers look tough!
Kev has also just taken charge of his new Rally Raid dual headlight conversion for his 690 so will be posting some pictures as soon as he installs it.
