What could possibly go wrong?

Go for it! And like many others, we use soda bottles etc. for fuel containers all the time, they will likely be the most reliable kit you have. :-) Have fun!

Awesome. How long do you have slated for the trip? Will a 125 get you up a mountain? Will you be properly fitted with GoPros? or another helmet cam? Can the guy in the chase van post videos while you guys are out? I really want a play by play on this trip!

Good luck and have a blast.

Crazy or Genius??

Hey... I say "genius" of an idea. After all... isn't "genius" on the same page as "crazy" in the motorcycle dictionary???

You should use the Starbucks coffee bladder trick. 1.5 gallons that rolls flat. I might have a couple laying around here some where.

The coffe bladder is an excellent idea!! Yes, we will be outfitted with gopros and regular cameras. Everytime we meet up with the van we will exchange our memory cards. When ever Josh (van driver) has some wi-fi somewhere he will upload the vids and pics.

Crap. I've just about talked myself out of a CT-90 and I see this.
I've been banned from motorcycles since my pile up with some rocks in the mountains. Family is OK with a "scooter."
Have the urge to build something anyway.

Excellent ride! Will there be one or two in the support van? Will riders trade off with the van drivers? And....which engine and engine accessories will be more reliable; the "commie" Lifan or the "all American" Mo-Par 318/383?
