I depart for Alaska on May 17th on my great adventure. Bought Lovely Rita (2014 Vstrom DL650) in November and started to plan for our great adventure. Sunday, April 9th we leave on a 2000 mile solo SE USA trip (of course when I say "we" I mean Lovely Rita and me) to prepare for our biggy from May through August to Alaska. My plan is to post photos starting in the morning and talk about my trip here on my ride report. Perhaps we can learn together. Glad to have you along. Hard to believe I leave in the morning.
