This site has undergone quite a change recently. I realized that I had minimal content, and that redesigning would be better done now rather than later.
So here it is. I plan to store "blog" (I hate that word) posts about motorcycle trips. This summer I hope to sell my R6 and acquire a KLR650 to start my "ride everywhere" plan. I'll start by taking it on trips around home, much like I currently do with the sportbike - but with more off-road. This will give me a chance to figure out how I want to set everything up, what accessories I really need, and what tires are best. Then, it's off to Alaska for my first long trip.
Next, I'll do the Panama Canal round trip from home, then maybe a cross-country US trip as well. That's the end of 2-4 week trips I can take without shipping the bike across an ocean. The idea is to use vacation time while working, as opposed to those people who quit their job and spend years riding around the world. I just can't do that :)
Next I'll ship the bike to Brazil, ride south to the southern tip of S. America, then ride north all the way home. After that, who knows. Perhaps South Africa to Europe? Then Europe (London, for example) to India or Thailand? Of course, I also want to take the northern route across Asia and see Russia...
