nice one steve,you seem to have left it until the last minute but you"ve got it all sorted by the looks of things,hardest part will be cramming everything into the luggage although 60 litres of space should be enough.

Got myself a load of these tablets put a few drops of water on them & they swell up & open up to be a hand/face or ass wipe the same size as an iPad much much less room than a few bog rolls ....... but if you’ve no water you’ll have to use it to scrape it out ..... I’ve loads spare if anyone wants them
& before halfpint says anything I’m talking about The tablet not my keys 😂😂😂

New chain and sprockets as I couldn't get spare links for the OEM and altered the gearing slightly, new fork springs and oil, a chain oiler kit, got a pair of tyres to fit and alter/weld up the rear rack to fit a tool tube.

The practical stuff I can deal with, but I bought a Zumo 550 last year and can't work out how to get any mapping into it, been looking at basecamp etc and it confuses me! Also got to wire up the cradle for that :)

Warning re Basecamp! The latest version of basecamp has a bug and doesn't transfer the map to the satnav properly. Read this for more info https://openmtbmap.org/tutorials/basecamp-4-7-0/

Being totally new to basecamp and the satnav itself (zumo 595) this confused the hell out of me when trying to install the OSM Morocco map. It said it was on the satnav but when u zoomed in anywhere there was no detail! Took me hours to work out. Downgraded base camp version and all worked as expected.
