Just given you a follow on Instagram. Looks like this is going to be one hell of a journey, I look forward to seeing more of it! Best of luck, and congrats on taking the plunge!

Only just realised your trip had started Doh!

Looks like you hit the Carolinas about the same time as I was there.

How far south do you think you'll get? I had been thinking of doing an overland down to Peru/Chile but had forgotten my A level geography, the Darien Gap could be a bit of a sticking point!!

Happy travels, good luck Thumbs Up

Think I'll probably get as far as Guatemala and Belize, after that not sure. I'm in Arizona at the moment, Utah tomorrow. Lots of stuff to figure out, shipping home etc.

80 days on the road now, 9,500 miles.

Nah, but it's the best decision I've made, I love it, and I normally hate cities. Off bike shopping today. Might ride to Thailand for the MotoGP.

Lunch with an iced coffee cost me all of two quid in a restaurant.

Great thread and really well done and I'm jealous of you exploring but you could at least have taken a Honda Shadow because cruisers are best

I love my life/wife/kids/job etc but I'm jealous as fuck that I never did shit like this before I settled down.

Oh well, 20 years and the kids should have moved out and I'll be free again! Rolling Eyes

Made it coast to coast, 13k miles.

Didn't trust my mates bike anymore after he ran it out of oil... Mine, however, was perfect.

I'm home now but heading back out to Asia for a month in a week's time. Bike arrives back home on the 5th, but I fly out on the 3rd Laughing
