    Well, I got my new Shelter in the mail today. I think this will help with the visual of where this is going. The old shelter did not fit the look of the bike, this one is from an 1100 Goldwing and fits much better. I will still need to figure out how to mount it, but that is easy.

    This Goldwing has been around the world.

    It's not an adventure unless you undertake the trip on the most inefficient bike possible.

    I recognize Emillio Scotto's bike from his book - the longest ride. He had a great adventure!! Is it in a museum somewhere?

    I read that book and that goldwing has 500 hundred thousand miles on it. When he stop in Japan at the factory that made it They were shocked that it still ran with all the faults they found it and then honda rebuild it for him ?? Neat book . The guy bought it from a shop that thought he couldn't keep up the payments in Argentina . 3 months latter the Argentina government depeg there money from us dollar . He end up buying a new goldwing for 1/4 of the 20 grand is should have cost him. Then he left for 10 year world tour going places only ADV bikes go.

    Thanks for the heads up! :beer
    I just ordered the book on your recommendations. :thumb

    And just the other day I told my wife that I need to figure out a way to trade books with other riders.
    I have many ride books, a couple I have read more than once, but I keep buying more and after reading they just sit on the shelf.
    Hmmmm.... :hmmmmm

    Some kind of book trading thread here on adv?
    Any ideas or suggestions on how to make it work? :ear

    When I saw that bike and read the materials there at the museum my itch for an inappropriate adventure bike became overwhelming.

    Everything about that bike screams "Let's go!"

    cool. He almost never paid to stay anywhere . He stop for the day basicly and people would talk to him and end up offering him a place to stay.
