Got a call from a friend that I met, and rode with, during a trip to Alaska a few years back. Hey Andy, are you still thinking about riding to South America? I just bought a new bike Since I recently dropped out of the working world I have been wandering around the country (U.S.) for the last 3 months . And, now Im back where I started . So, a new direction seems like a good idea to me. Larry is from Alberta Canada and Im in Southern California - hell be riding a GS1200 and Ill be on a DR650. The ride will not start for a few weeks but the preparations have begun .
