Superb report, René!
Will you be reporting from the road on your way through the Americas this Fall / Winter? If so, I'll be looking forward to following along with you two! Do you have a plan outline yet? Have you chosen the bike for it?
I want to ride the Americas with my wife so your approach for two-up is of particular interest to me.
Let's ride!!! - No offense, but there've been a lot of people over time who were just as sure, yet got it wrong. - Una necedad, aunque la repitan millones de bocas, no deja de ser una necedad. - "you know that I could have me a million more friends and all I'd have to lose is my point of view" (Prine)
