I was able to convince my wife that it would be a good idea for me to spend the first 3 months of my retirement wandering around Mexico on my new bike.
There should be a stickied post for reports on how to gain approval from, or a least break the news to, wives of riders who plan to take off on an adventure. Sometimes that's the hardest part of planning, and maybe even the trip. For me, the "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" line has worked well. I just don't know how many more times she'll believe that line.
Sounds like a great trip! Perhaps our paths will cross on my way back north in 2013. Subscribed!
