Bronco: I hear you about NOLA. It's a wonderful place for a few weeks. I miss it a lot, but like most big cities, the disadvantages to living there become clear only when you've overstayed your welcome!
As for the FJ--it might not be an ADV bike, but it prevented me from having to ride with another man hugging me from behind. ;) Also let me bring along a bbq and a ton of food. (Stay tuned for Lemongrass Bulgogi and Kimchee rice!)
I'll have to do DV on a bike made for it.....perhaps Ducati or KTM have a press bike they would like reviewed/ADV tested?
This is what the "closed" road into the park looks like when you get far enough in. My third time up this side and it just gets better and better.
