I know it's early, but I'd like to be prepared. Surely some of you want to give it a try. I'm sort of a 'novice', but not entirely. Over 20,000 miles of riding, a lot on sand, dirt and gravel. Not a lot of 'technical' riding thus far, but working on it. Think about it. I'd love to get a few ADV riders together for this. None of my friends would touch this thing, let alone ride outside of town. About me: 28 years of age as of this Thursday, ride a F800GS, want to camp mostly, with a motel once or twice a week, and easy to get along with.
