First purchase!

My very first purchase for the trip arrived last October: a portable toolkit, a brush to clean the chain and a small adapter to lubricate the throttle and clutch cables more easily.

2012-10-18 12.53.52The one-year warranty on my bike expired shortly before I started planning this trip in September last year, so I decided that I needed to become familiar with the mechanics as quickly as possible and started doing the servicing myself. So far the toolkit has proven to be enough to perform basic servicing on the bike.
