Right? :eek1 We hope to camp a lot and hope that some of you nice guys will maybe lets us stay at your places also? We wrote down a lot of places that could be fun to see and plugged it into my GPS. So if why get near the waypoint will pop up. This is not an excact plan.. not at all.! Lets se where the wind blows The bikes The trip will be done on two DRZ400S..!! One is already in stock at GSdiablos place. Number two will be bought when we get there. The mission.
