Seems like a really bad idea. Of course that is the start of most good trips.

In!

I'm in. After reading Nate and Dot's RR I really enjoy the CT's.

Check out http://hondavstheworld.com/! I met Sean at the Acrtic Circle on the Haul Road on his way to Argentina on a Honda C90 Cub. He has a RR on here but his site goes into more detail.
Good luck on your jorney!

Awesome!!! Thanks for the link. We just got one of the bikes registered. This is the one that we will mock up in a couple days with the engine, suspension, and wiring. Bring it out to the ranch and figure out the sprocket ratio and all of the other unseen problems. Once we get that one all ironed out, we will build the 4 other bikes just like it in on LONG weekend.
As far as fuel, we will be running the stock tank (seat) and building a rack that holds a larger plastic fuel can on the rear fender (left side). We will have a total of 3 gallons per bike. If we know we will be in for a longer stretch, we will just fill up soda bottles and such. I know a lot of people put dirtbike tanks on the backbone of the CT's but to me, it crowds your legs a bit to much. Especially when your in a sticky situation. Ive rode a long stretch in Nevada with a 2liter soda bottle full of fuel with no problems. Once again, just as a back up.

How much were the engines? I saw that a 125 CC for my sons TaoTao ATV was $125 new! The Chinese Honda clones do seem to be pretty reliable.

What are you doing for carburetors?
