Every year I take 7-8 weeks off and ship my bike, a 2014 BMW F800GSA named Goodenough somewhere around the World for a ride. This year I was a week away from delivering the bike to Air Canada to ship it back to Bogota where I would meet it and then arrange for it to be flown to Panama where I would ride it home through Central America. Borders started closing, first Guatemala, and El Salvador. I knew I could be trapped somewhere and I would have trouble getting back to the job that I love. So, after much deliberation and no small amount of whiskey to drown my sorrows, I decided to explore my own backyard with a loop around the American Southwest. A quick primer on my journey: South Korea https://advrider.com/f/threads/sokcho-joe.971299/ Russia to Scotland https://advrider.com/f/threads/travels-with-goodenough.974271/ Seattle to Nova Scotia: https://advrider.com/f/threads/last-lap.1088467/ South America: https://advrider.com/f/threads/travels-with-goodenough-south-america.1234266/ Morocco: https://advrider.com/f/threads/travels-with-goodenough-morocco.1318050/ Lower Europe: https://advrider.com/f/threads/travels-with-goodenough-lower-europe.1318519/ A lap around the Black Sea: https://advrider.com/f/threads/travels-with-goodenough-a-lap-of-the-black-sea.1382698/ So with that said, join me in a bit of America. At least this trip I can speak the language.
