Next years ride!

Well next years ride is set. I am planning on riding down to the south tip of South America on my KLR. It is a charity ride for MS. I plan to leave in Sept 2014 and take 4 months to complete.

Check out my blog at www.AmazingRideforMS.ca

Hi Garry!
Good cause. Went to the site and sent a little something. Is there anything you need in the way of bike or trip prep? Parts or help on the bike, supplies or equipment?
I would be able to help and I am sure others could too!

Thanks Jeff, got your donation. There are a few things I need to do to the bike, but I'll work on it over the winter. Could use some help though, not exactly sure what right now. I'll keep you in mind.

Thanks again

Great ride for a great cause, Garry Kramer. We have a friend who has MS. I'll tell her about your ride and your blog.

That will be quite the adventure. Know a guy who did that on a V-Strom.

Hope you know, or will know, Spanish.
