You ever sit down at the end of the day, look around at all the crap you have, and think to yourself, "fuck this"? If so, you know where we're at. If not and you want some encouragement, live in DC for a while! We planned on doing this next spring (end of the summer isn't the best time to start out), but after having our bikes stolen (but recovered!), it was time. Enough of kicking the can down the road doing weekend trips and watching motorcycle youtube videos at home. On a 790S is my partner @Pad Kitty Mao, and on a 1290SAR are the dog Surak and myself. What's the plan? Right now it's camping our way west and then south until there is no more south, then across the the Atlantic and up the next continent. Of course this is all subject to what happens along the way and whatever we're feeling. We're not big on hammered out, detailed plans so much as having a vague direction to go. That said, knowing what's around you is important, and in this vein I'm constantly adding stuff to the map so we can look at it and connect the dots. Thanks to the inmates here, the dirt riding is looking pretty good: Obviously there are people to see and things to do along the way, and we're always looking for suggestions or folks to ride or have a beer with, so send 'em! Surak says he's also looking for other dogs to chill with. I'll be posting updates here periodically. Everyone starts off with sexy pictures of bikes and gear and stuff, but I'll end this initial post with the most stressful part of this: ...all the junk that needs to be not here in a few days. Anybody want some? Hope to see y'all out there along the way!
