Awesome write up. Congratz on pulling off one of the toughest/most rewarding trips to do on a moto. It's one of the things I keep saying I will do, but keep putting off. When I do, I'm going to be referencing this write up.

Been trying to catch up; dry up the tears, etc., etc. and finally got a chance to read about your trip. I'll echo what Brian said, down to the fact that I'm going to do that one day and I'll be looken for pointers. It's so awesome that you just grabbed the opportunity and ran (or rode) with it!!

The "Ride Planning" thread that prefaced this "Ride Tale" titled "50CC Cheerleaders wanted" has also been archived to this Forum. The link is here (clicky).
