Adding to the resources

So a couple of things that I will be adding to the pages will be some Garmin Zumo 660/665 reference material and also some material for the BMW F650GS motorbike. Why? Well these are all bits of kit that we’ve acquired and form part of our travel package.

Whilst Google Maps, Waze and iPhone solutions are all brilliant, nothing really beats a functional sat nav that just works, doesn’t need a phone signal and is waterproof. the Zumo 660 is bullet proof, waterproof and works equally well on a motorbike or in a van. Handily I’ve learnt how to refurbish these nav units and know my way around the software for them. I plan to dump my brain onto a sub section here so that I don’t have to remember too much myself!

Secondly the BMW F650GS, it’s a lumpy single cylinder “do anything” baby GS. It’s relatively easy to fix at the roadside and can easily be attached across the back of our Sprinter on a standard motorbike carry harness. I’ve collated several links and places that I refer to, and again I’ll be adding the contents of my  brain here as I go.
