Currently 108 days in. </p> I meant to begin this ride report much earlier, but was caught up in riding and having fun! Better late than never, right? At first I struggled with how I wanted present this ride report the perfect sentence, the coolest picture, and so forth way too exhausting, so please forgive my crappy writing and horrible pictures. No promises on posting frequency either.</p> For the longest time I didnt want to do a ride report, I wanted this experience to be mine. I changed my mind because the ride reports on ADVRider and Horizons Unlimited were a source of inspiration and something that I could live through vicariously when a motorcycle trip was not an option. Hopefully this can repay some of the debt I owe all the riders that took the time to document their trips.</p> On 29 June 2011 I set off from Morgantown, West Virginia on my first bike, a 2006 Suzuki DR650. I dont know how far or where Ill go, but the basic plan is to do the Trans American Trail and then take a left and go south. When fun or money runs out, the trip will be over.</p> </p> </p> My bike has approximately 3k miles on the odometer. 1,100 of those miles were mine, with about 30 being off road. I needed miles under my belt. Off road riding is the quickest and most challenging way to build the technical riding skills I am going to need for a trip south time to TAT it up!</p> NOTE!! I am writing this report while on the road, currently in Guanajuato, Mexico. Ill try to give a rough route/schedule and would love to hear from other riders or individuals along the route. Next up is Guadalajara and then Mexico City.
