I'm thinking about doing a "fly and ride" from Salem, OR to Tucson, AZ about a month from now. The plan is to take an MSF class next weekend, practice riding a friends Yamaha TR250R for a few weeks then fly to Portland, pick up a new Husky TR650 Terra in Salem and ride back to Tucson staying off the interstates. I'm a 53 year old avid bicyclist yearning to try out adventure riding. I've been researching bikes and the Terra seems ideal to me. There's a time pressure in that the Terra's are selling out fast and the later summer is already scheduled for family vacations.
