Just for reference - I google mapped this adventure. I doubt it's the exact route he took but, wow....

Jonathan,

How about shipping the bikes to Cabo San Lucas and starting the trip from there!! Now that's not something that's done often :thumbup:

Bong and Mark H have been itching for a ride. If they agree, then I'm in! Strength in numbers.

I do love Mexican food..... http://tinyurl.com/mno4bcq



The lingering dream is to 'replicate' in a more modest way Dennis's cross country Panigale expedition....although I think the MTS serve better than my 848: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=808437

Their route is mapped here : http://dewith.com/2014/ride-north-plotting-a-course/
They took the time to see the scenery, hikes, etc. Fun stuff. Your route to Mexico is nice, but why stop there ? might as well go all the way down!


How about here:?

Just to keep my string of "I am a chickenshit" postings going,

I would not ride a bike in Mexico.

That was Argentina, but parts of Mexico are worse than there.

I'd love to ride to Prudhoe Bay at some point. Seems like it woud be an epic trip.
