thanks, brother that was great. I was lurking around on the WR specific forum looking for LD adventures and came across your ride. Sweet! Gives me inspiration to upgrade the DR with something a little more modern.

I'd leave tomorrow on another trip without hesitation if I had the time and cash. I have plans in the works for this summer, not planning to go as far afield but instead I'm going racing, hoping to run the full Atlantic RallyMoto series and a few Dual Sport rides. I'm also debating a trip down to Key West and the Mississippi Hill Country trail, or going back to the Plains.

Thats flippin sweet... I don't know how I missed this action for so long. Awesome report and thanks for the gear reviews... they'll be helpful to those of us who keep planning on taking a trip like that but probably won't be able to for 5-10 years lol.

No time like the present to start planning! Who knows, once you've got the plan you might find a way to get away sooner.

Bookmarked....another great RR I wanna check out.

I know I have seen it before, but rack system is this with the incorporated gas can. Its probably the one I'll get when I get my WRR.

It's raining here and my arms in a sling. I just spent the afternoon reading the entire thread. Great job, I really enjoyed it.

emerson.biguns made the rack on the left side, but I don't think he's making any more. You'll have to find one used... I think if I do it again, I'd mount a 1gal on the tail and stick to saddle bags for luggage.

Glad people are still reading and enjoying my little ride. :)
