My riding buddy considers a trailer to be cheating ("it's just like mountain biking") so I'm wondering how you approach that decision. Thanks for sharing the great rides with us!
Maybe you and your buddy should ride from Victoria,BC on a WR250 to Baja to start a long ride in January. Experienced riders do their homework before starting long adventure ride in exterme weather conditions.
