Am I being a fool for wanting to take such a trip on an old moto that is not exactly dual sport? Again, for those that haven taken the trip mentioned. I know that at least in Colombia the locals ride 125cc "standard" motos.
How many times have you EVER seen where all the roads from North America to South America was all hard packed dry, much less paved? Seems every time I've seen anything about touring down into Central and South America there are areas where the road ways qualify for off roading if they were in the U.S.

The answer is legitimate considering the question posed.
Ever get lost? You know, that good kind of lost - come to a dirt road intersection and you have no idea where you are or which way to turn? I like when that happens!
