Hi I'm Janine from ERTW, my boyfriend, Pascal and I are riding our two DR 650 "round" the world. I will write a ride report about our trip. But because we are already on the road for four months , I'll keep the beginning a little shorter. For the ones who want to see a little more of the already experienced things, can also visit our homepage. www.ertw2015.wix.com/ertw We are both from Switzerland and 25 years old (I'm 25 in a few Days ;-) ) Our plan for the beginning is to ride from North- to South Amerika. After this part we will see how we get back home (fligh directly to Switzerland, ride trough Africa back to Europe or to Australia.. Russia back to Europe) The launch of our Trip was on 4 April. We flew from Zurich to Toronto, with our Bikes in the same Airplane. Philippe another Swiss guy flew also with us (he has also rides a DR 650). But in Toronto our paths have separatet till...( you will see later) Our Bikes arrived in one piece in Toronto. It was like Christmas. From Toronto we rode down to the Niagara Falls and crossed the US border. Then through the Appalachian Mountains. Where we hit the first offroad trails. And had our first three flat tires. After the States New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee we came to the end of the Mountains and the prairie began. The first days were interesting but we got bored verry quickly, so we decided in Oklahoma to go on the interstate for our first time. So we past Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico in to Arizona. In NM and AZ we rode our first BDRs, there are both very nice and not so difficult. Arizona. Biggest Pine tree forest in the World. And Pascal search for new Trails. So this shoud be enough for the first part, the next post will be coming soon, so I can catch up with the contemporary.
