    Given that we have a new home, how about we spread the love by linking our adventures with our F8/6.5 bikes here.

    I certainly like to read ride reports not just for the adventure but also for the bikes so it would be nice to have a place where all the ride reports feature our favourite stars.

    I know some of you have done the TAT, CDT, Pacific Coast, Colorado, Alaska, etc....so here's another chance for you to share.

    Given some recent additions via Jedi5150, I thought I'd give this a bump.

    Post up your adventures or those you enjoyed reading!
