Have much confidence in my bikes 1995 XR650L & 2008 WR250R. Have a little mech. skill accumulated over the years & some great friends that after a couple days would come looking for me Always invite others to join me on these rides but if no takers I go solo & really what's the worst thing that can happen?


DAMN, Tom a 439 mile "day" is more like an endurance ride. Hell my ass is sore, knees a knock'n and thigh's burn'n... just think'n about it! ... and I'm several years short of your age.

Tom... I agree with your thinking... re/opportunities. Having confidence in your riding skills and bike make solo travel much easier.


Looks like a great trip. Thank you for taking us along.
