This site has been such an inspiration to me. I want to thank every single person, who has ever done a ride report. I try to read as many as I can, and I've stumbled into some good rides. I wish I was the kid who at 6 was doing doubles, but my journey started out when I was 16, and a car was just a little bit out of my budget. At the age of 18 I was introduced to a CR 85, my life has never been the same. I've had the privilege of running into some ADV'ers, and all of them have shared some valuable information. For example, I was introduced to the phrase Safety Third...which I ride with everyday. Thanks Hayduke The following reports are ADV induced madness, often resulting in bent handle bars and other damages. These will be my several day trips that I attempt, and hopefully survive.
