Here I go again! Seeking experienced riding partners for next summer. Yes yes its way ahead but it did take a while to figure out the bike shipping for my South America ride and getting a month off means plenty of advance notice to the boss. I've got a draft of the route (it takes time to figure out route, distances and hopefully invites from fellow ADV riders for homestays along the way). So keep an eye on my thread and I'll post each country's route and highlights so you can do your own research. Join me for any part of it or all of it. Consider it a hop on hop off if you like. About me: Plenty of RR here on ADV if you want to get to know me but here are the basics of a ride with SpecialAgentNancy. Toured Eastern Europe, Western Europe, South America, Turkey (3 times), Alaska/Yukon, Iceland. Stopped counting countries toured after I reached 30. Experienced, efficient and self reliant. -Camping. I prefer camping due to its simplicity, guarantee of comfort and cost, plus its always smart to carry your lodging with you in the event of a breakdown or emergency. I like to alternate with hotels for a hot shower and laundry. -Food. I've been called the "hobbit" and not for my hairy feet. I'll make strong french press coffee each morning to share and then first order of business will be eating a warm meal, often. -Safety. I'm way past proving I can ride this or that narly road. I'll prefer pavement over dirt and ride the speed limit. We'll wear Sena to communicate, each have GPS and I also carry maps. Delorme/Spot and medivac important. -Riding. Looking for at least 2 other riders to share most if not all of the ride but if you are a local and want to ride a section of it (show us your backyard so to speak) great and I appreciate invites for backyard camping or homestays. Some other facts: I'll probably ship my bike from Oakland CA by container or air. Triumph Tiger 800 XC. I do my own service right down to valve clearances and pack all necessary tools and know how to change a tire (read my Alaska RR) and other maintenance. My life depends on my bike, I respect it accordingly. I spend the month before training physically for the ride. Expect 300-500KM days with shorter ones from time to time. I'll be cool with making changes or splitting for a day or two as long as they make sense and keep us on track. Route Denmark>Sweden>Lithuania>Latvia>Estonia>Finland>Sweden>Norway>Denmark. 1 month.
