Wow great first pic! Totally in! The more I read about 250ccm bikes the more interested I get. Looking forward how they handle the trip. Have a good time and stay safe!

Deans suit is made by Klim. I cant remember the model but price wise it falls between the Traverse that I am wearing and the the Badlands. We both got wet in the crotch on a day that we rode in the rain for about 8 hours straight.

as I can tell your pics are gonna rock.
The camera is a Sony RX100 point and shoot. I am using Lightroom 4 to process. I just got the camera and sofware for the trip so I don't really know what I am doing. I pretty much just start tweeking stuff until I think it looks better then eventually I've tweaked to much and I undo the last few tweaks. Sometimes when I'm done I comare to the original and it looks better than my version. At that point I just pic one of the presets and move on.

Sweet! As a fellow WR owner with big dreams I look forward to reading this. Maybe at some point you can give a run down of what all you guys packed. Looks like you guys have a LOT of stuff.

I had to laugh when I saw this picture-------looks like your packing a dead body.



So imagine what people thought when we were hauling all the way across the country to Mexico. I can't believe we didn't get pulled over.

If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.

Those were Mikes (shower) slippers. All I can say is a big thanks to Adventure cycle in Fairbanks and his very handy pressure washer! For some reason all the buckles and straps started getting hard to operate. Calcium chloride I think. I'm really surprised you didn't get pulled over to, great pic
