Peru to Peru

I thought I'd practice for my trip to Peru this past weekend. I need to try out my cold weather gear. So I suited up and headed out off to Peru





Well not actually the real Peru but close enough. Peru, IL.

I figured if I started this ride report before I left, I might actually finish a ride report.

Peru to Peru

I don't know if I'm crazy or what for attempting this trip.

I've only been riding for less than 2 year and now I am going to tour the country of Peru-with ?? road conditions.


This is only the beginning....

The rds arent too bad down in Peru....mainly watch out for oncoming vehicles, and animals in your lane! And for sure dont drive at night!
Other than that, you will love the scenery...looking forward to your posts
