I'm finally back in the shop working on a long planned build. It's obviously a departure from the usual ADV fair seen here. I happened upon the whole Adventure riding thing through this site several years ago mid stride of another Harley build. It struck a cord with me with memories of my youth riding dirt bikes. To scratch that itch, I found a KTM SE and thoroughly immersed myself in that world. The journey has been fun and I've enjoyed learning about this genre. This is intended to follow a similar, but different strain of what I've found I enjoy. I'm from Wisconsin and I identify with the proud Harley heritage of the state. I marvel at the iron butt warriors of the past, so I'm going to emulate their grit and give this a go. If nothing else, it'll be a story for my kids and future grandkids. Several years ago I was gifted a shovelhead. It was built of little but aftermarket parts.
