Hey nuttynu, how about you read my ride report on taking a sportbikes across the TOW? And through some of the construction zones.....and campgrounds....are you planning on using some of those newfangled semi- knobbies type tires on the Bike? Or full on sport touring tires?
Please visit trip planning as well. And equipment.
I was a noob as well,( aren't we all at some point?) and the folks here were and are fantastic!,!! I am very pleased to call many of them friend.
