On the Road

Posted by on Nov 4, 2009 in Mexico & Central America, Motorcycle Vagabonding | 2 comments

Well, I’ve spent two days on the road so far and the bike is running great. What a difference to be riding a 650 instead of a 350. I put about 15,000 dirt miles on the DR350 this summer and, well, that gets you pretty used to a bike and it’s shortcomings. You just sort-of learn to live with them. The DR650 is a dream–I can cruise along at 70 comfortably (thanks in part to the MRA windshield). I’m still working out some kinks, and it seems I start every trip with a new bike by running out of gas. Yeup, somewhere in PA yesterday at 188 miles on the odometer I ran out of gas. I just assumed that with a 4.9 gallon IMS tank, at ~60 mpg, that I could get to 200 easily without having to...

Launch!

We had a fantastic day Saturday (Halloween) and quite a nice turn out for my send-off party. It was great to reconnect with old friends, and be able to show off my bike. Twisted Throttle did a fantastic job on my DR650SE (2003) and it looks and runs GREAT! It’s the perfct setup for my ride to South America, and the bike fits me incredibly well. Plus, I was pleased that all the crap I packed fit into the panniers 🙂 Actually, I tried to pack really lightly, but when one is at home imagining a big trip, the mind distorts what you will actually need. I am sure as I travel I will throw out a bunch of stuff. The good news is that I weighed the Trax box liners when full of my stuff, and I was...

I’ve decided to make my South American trip an extension of my “Adventure for the Cure” fundraising efforts this summer, and will be riding with the goal of bringing breast health awareness throughout the Americas, and fundraising along the way. Donations for finding breat cancer and ovarian cancer CURES can be made directly HERE . Please know that any monies you donate go directly to the CURES… I am paying my own travel expenses!!! TWISTED THROTTLE has come on board, and they will be outfitting my bike. They offer everything you could possibly want to set up an adventure touring bike, and I am going to prove it. I’ll also provide valuable product feedback on how the parts work in real-world environments. I just love how committed Twisted Throttle is to only distributing the best accessories available on the...
