Show me the money!!! something stinks on this one!!!!!
There are plenty of "adventure" riders that have plenty of time to posts pictures and stories from their "adventures" once they have safely checked into their hotel room and switched on the wifi. We are 9 days into our Rad-icle Ed-venture and we have yet to pay for accommodations. We have been resourceful and have found places without being robbed or worse.
To do this RR the justice it deserves, we are too caught up in the actual adventure to post a complete summary. But once we are safely back to civilization, we will go back and fill in the details. Neither of us is making any money or getting product endorsements. One day, maybe we will. But it seems like the guys that get the money and stuff are guys that spend most of their time posting and editing than actually Adventure riding.
So if you want that sort of Adventure, then there are plenty of other RRs that will offer you something that smells sweet to you. As for Rad and I, we haven't had a decent shower in over a week......so yes, we stink
smells sweat to me, have a sweat time, we can wait for the main event .
This is turning out to be a much bigger Adventure than I ever thought it could be.
I lost my reading glasses so now I can't see s*** when I type so hopefully this message will be spelled correctly
Looking forward to this ride report, and pictures. This definitely sounds like it could be a real adventure.
Dane at Sargent :)
Another adventure in true Ed style. When you're back stateside I'm sure we will all get to ride along on the trip.
When out on a bike adventure I usually don't even find the time to crack out a camera for pictures, let alone burn endless hours working on the posts. I save that for when I'm back in the office and I've been pulling my hair out.
Keep up the fun times & stay sharp!
This short trip to this little Caribbean island is turning out to be one of the greatest Adventures of all time. Who knew?
Perhaps all it takes is fellow traveler who is on the same page as you!
Nothing like a wingman.
We are more than a team.
We are brothers
This says volumes. I thought your previous Edventures were pretty spectacular.
Looking forward to this report whenever it gets shared.
Another cliffhanger?!! Can't wait to read it! :)
Got a great message from Rad and Ed.... so funny.
I'm sure this RR will be crazy.
Back now so should be updated soon!
Awesome, I lived on the Hatian DR border for a few years. Awesome country, wonderful people.
If you get to Restauracion, have a beer at La Malaria!
I commuted from Cabarete to Restauracion on a CRF 450....fun fun
We rode / pased t thru Cabarete. Had dinner with some new friends there. We slept just outside of town. Strung our hammocks up between coconut trees on the beach there. Lots of gringos there. Women out numbered men 3 to 1. Wish we had time to stay longer. I even spotted a unicorn there.
We were heading for Restauracion, but we had some issues with the bikes.
These bikes are definitely making this trip more of an Adventure for us. Outside of Cabarete, we had not seen another foreign traveler in over a week. And definitely not traveling by motorcycle. And I don't know anyone else crazy enough to try it on these little two strokes. Even the locals can't believe it......but we are doing it
Enjoying this thread immensely Ed. Love the DR - Love Cabarete. Honeymooned there many years ago (while competing in a windsurfing contest - yup I am a true romantic) and have kept going back to this special place.
Over the past 15 years, my wife and I have rented DT 125's in Cabarete and toured that region along the winding dirt roads in around a 100 mile radius of Cabarete - SE past Past Playa Grande to Cabrera, South to San Frisco de Macoris, and NW past Puerto Plata to Monte Cristi. Traffic is insanely unpredictable, but once you realize its going to be unpredictable, it gets really easy to figure out.
Earth moving machinery wins, lots of young guys with limbs missing from riding around on their moto-conchos, the standard mode of transport!
Absolutely LOVE the Dominican people, friendly helpful and just so hospitable. Regularly stopped for gas on the side of the road from young kids selling gas from old plastic 2L Coke bottles. And often invited into local's homes for a meal.
Keep the story coming!
do we get to see pictures of this trip any time soon?
I think Ed and Rad are getting their stories straight or waiting for the statuettes of limitations to expire.
And history has shown us that "truth is stranger than fiction" when another Edventure rolls through !
