Hey there! I'm about to start my biggest moto adventure to date and I'm doing things a bit differently this time by making videos as I go.
I made this little intro to tell you about the trip. :D

My plan is to collect ideas, destinations, questions and challenges from you guys as I go to make it an interactive experience and hopefully more fun and interesting for both of us!

I'm flying into Alaska, buying a bike and embarking from Fairbanks on July 20th (just a couple days!) so please post some ideas and challenges up on this thread or YouTube and I'll do my best to incorporate as many as possible! I have about a month and a half for Alaska and the west coast and I'm factoring about a year for the whole trip, so the pace should have room for lots of side adventures! The wonderful rotarygirder will be joining me for the Alaska leg and my good friend Andrea will be riding South with me from San Diego!

Thanks in advance for your help, I'm super excited to get this show on the road!

I'm in. You go girl and be safe. I like your video and the pink hair is cool too.
I do have a question? How do you finance a trip like this? You are doing what a lot of us would like to do if.......... I hold young women in high regard who take on an adventure like this. I have a friend from your area that is an adventire rider, she goes by the name of Operaflute. :thumb:thumb

I met you briefly at the Roll the Bones rally last year. Heard about your upcoming adventures with Andrea over rib dinner. My Sherpa gas tank still has a Becktastic! signature. It is waiting for me down in South America while I work this summer for more travel funds.

So happy to see you are taking off. Have a great trip! Hope to see you down in South America next year.

Your ADV pal,
Tio Juanito

Thanks for the support! :D I'll try to do a future video about financing a trip like this, since I think there's a lot to that answer and a lot of people would like to know haha!

Of course I remember you! And that awesome rib dinner! It was all we could do to finish it with two of us! Keep in touch and hopefully we'll meet again on the south side!

I made a short clip about the kindness of Alaskan strangers and getting my bike prepped for the Dalton Highway. James (rotary girder) should be getting his bike in Anchorage right now and rolling up to meet me tonight, we're going to have a welcome feast and take to the highway in the morning. It's been raining a lot, but I'm not scared! :wink:

Further down the road
 
Hey there, have a safe ride and have fun.
It's a bit early now, but when you get a little further down the road, you, like other ADV riders have, are welcome to hang your helmet at our shack on the beach in Playa Uverito Panama. Your Tio Juan Downs has stayed there as well as DylanS the crazy little fella and Randy from Alberta.

My son, Cam, and I are heading out in November for our 6 week ride from our driveway in Teeswater, Ontario, Canada to our driveway in Playa Uverito, Los Santos, Panama. We plan to get there a week or so before Christmas. But hey wether you come by before, during or after, you are welcome to hang out and enjoy some rustic, typical Panamanian culture and hospitality. There are a few pics on Tio Johns rr somewhere around page 78ish at the shack.

Maybe see you down the road. Looking forward to the rr.
Safe travels:clap

You go Girl, I was supposed to Fly to LA on the 15th/10 to ride to the tip of south america then back up to Artic cirlce. I been riding around Australia in the mean time but just had a crash on Cape york. Got an xray after 2000 more kilometers and have 9 broken bones in foot an ankle. So surgery for me and delayed trip.
Have you any tips for a positive healing experience after your wrist??
Enjoy your trip, I will definatly keep posted as I will be in your tyre tracks soon.:clap

Thank you! I'm realizing why it is uncommon though, electronics aren't easy to haul around, keep safe and charged!

Yikes! I would say finding a really good surgeon is the most important and get that metal out of your body if you can. For me, the second surgery was the best decision I could have made. I had constant aching from the metal and limited range of motion from scar tissue until I had them removed. And do your physical therapy! Don't be afraid to accept help offered to you, don't isolate yourself, healing is long, often painful and boring, but remember it is a temporary state and you will get better! :hugs and healing thoughts your way:

At least you can watch this video and live vicariously until you can ride the Dalton yourself! :D

I'll follow along, it's been pretty good so far...

Have you preplanned your route south or are you just winging it?

adventurebound9517 08-01-2013 08:49 AM

What a great way to present a RR. I'm not usually a fan of video.o but this is the exception to that rule. Rise on Becktastic Ride on. :freaky
