Hey All, First post, figure I'd make it here. New to adventure Riding, been riding Harleys for 15 years. Dont currently own a motorcycle, but have been looking at either a new Tiger, Tenere, CrossTourer or the like. I'm planning to pick something up next spring and am in learning/ research mode right now. I REALLY enjoy getting out on the road & going places. Harleys were good for this but mine never really handled well in the dirt. What really got me hooked on this stuff was "The Long Way Round" book & vids. Need it. So anyway, looking forward to meeting you all and getting out on the road. Any & All info/ Wisdom is appreciated. -Face P.s. Several years ago I bumped into a gentleman named 'Toby' in the Ojai area of Southern California, riding his adventure bike around town. He was involved with the local ADV club & gave me some good info. Just curious if anyone on the forum knows of him. Really nice guy.
