I have no idea on the ADV riding....Sell it, buy a cheap street bike like the SV650 when you get there. When you return to SoCal, but an 800 adventure. Boom. That's what I'd do but that's just me.

Maybe leave the 13 yr old at home and bring him back when he gets his permit. The idea of towing the 80 with the 250 while two-up is crazy in itself :lol3
