Very nice. I met some guys traveling similarly here, some with their wife on back.
I am fortunate in that I look out the window at mountains that have single track and roads. So a little bike for me is very useful.
Agreed just to do the CD gravel road a big bike would work. I admit, I am after something else, a bike that is easy for offroad or singletrack is more important for me than comfort on highway.
