However, before simply handing over a couple bikes to them for the trip, KTM sent a subject matter expert (SME) with experience travelling in remote parts of the world to check out their planned route — a prudent move since, given the high public visibility of the trek, the outcome would have a serious impact — positive or negative — on KTM’s image. Imagine if disater should befal one of these public figures while they were on a KTM; would you buy one?
in anticipation of a possible ride down a twisty road. I can’t help but break into a huge grin and feel a sudden urge to give him a big hug. Whooozzzhhh a good boy… Izzhhh Gunther a good boy? Guntherzz’s a good boy… yesshh he izzhhh… yesshhh he izzzhhh. Hooozzhh-ah-wooozzzhh-ah-wooozzzhh-aaahhh.
tell me of a local place where I can get BBQ sandwiches. Oh, yeah; that’s the ticket. Soon, I’m sitting at a table in Holy Smoke BBQ, chomping on a huge (and I’ve got the “small” size) pulled beef brisket sandwich smothered in mesquite sauce. Without doubt, this is one of the culinary high points of the trip thus far. If you find yourself in Calgary I suggest you try this place–not just for the amazing sandwiches; but for the funky, down-to-earth ambiance. (NW corner of Blackfoot Trail and Manhatten).
something I had wanted to do before I started my trip; but it just had not gelled. Unfortunate, too; for handling 475-kg, top-heavy Gunther in deep gravel has already proven to be a knuckle-whitening experience.
