Great story and pictures Paul,this sounds like my kind of trip. I like the idea of riding this type of bike for a relaxing tour,especialy when someone else takes charge of the maintenance. Ahh, I look back with nostalga when I fixed Triumph magnetoes by the road side and stripped Goldi

carb's to stop the flooding.If only I'd held on to that Triumph T120 though,what a bike that was. If any MO readers are interested,some of my trips can be seen at www.bmwmotorrad.co.za ,under articles & trip reports, heading, From Australasia .Joe Barker.

Well, just a little while longer before my '68 Commando is ready. The engine's back together, and the frame is still at the powdercoaters. I'm hearing that it'll be ready by the next Hansen Dam ride, so I'll be on a Norton for the Norton club's third best ride of the year!

I was just recently in Chile's wine country. Beautiful indeed. I hope to be moving down to Chile in October, and when I do, I'll be sure to take a vintage bike tour.

I'd want all of those bikes to be torquey enough to be ridden in third gear over the entire track. My brain can't think fast enough to adapt that quickly.
