Here's my $.02 worth.
I rode from Phoenix to the Panama Canal last January and the one regret I have is we didn't have more time. So, if you don't have a firm schedule like we did - we could all...

05 Wee Strom

Just adding my $.02 worth.
I can't really give a fair comparison because it's only my second bike, my first being a 1981 Honda GL500 Silverwing, but it's fair to say I'm VERY impressed with the Wee!...

Sorry

I just re-read your post and see that you're not leaving until August.
August?! It's REALLY hot there in January, I can't even imagine what it's like in August. Mind you, we visited SF this past...

Absolutely!

Go for it!
I did the same route this past January on a 26 year old Honda GL 500 Silverwing. Trust me, I would have traded you for your bike anyday!
My wife and I are doing most of the same route in...

No guts no glory

If you want a REAL adventure do what I did.
Sept 06 - get a wild idea to ride to the Panama Canal. Only one problem: no bike and no license

In Jan I rode my 1981 Honda GL500 Silverwing from Phoenix Az to the Panama Canal. So all the "the only true adventure bike is a BMW or KTM" types should take note - it's not what you ride,...
