Great RR! I stumbled upon the story early Tuesday morning, almost ended up being late for work because I lost track of time! While at work that same morning I'm sure I was less than productive, at lunch I had to tell my coworkers all about your trip (and one I felt I was on with your descriptions and pictures).
Thanks for the inspiration!

This quote sums up the spirit of the guys, their journeys and this thread pretty good!

Then of course, the 640's choke adjustment acting up sure didnt help either.

What an adventure!!

Great stuff! You guys had quite the time! I totally know what you're saying about the beach riding, slogging through the soggy sand, trying to beat the tide. Glad you guys made it. Ride the World!
