>>Part of the reason I chose the scooter - adventure is all about your frame of mind, you can find it anywhere, on anything.

I love the part where you take 'the Usal Road.' The adventure inside an adventure, you so embody the spirit!

Just goes to show all those people who need all the goodies on a big bike what can be done without it.
I would love to do a long ride on my TU250, which would be massive and fast compared to your feat!
Almost like riding a gold wing....

Wow, bump of a long idle thread! I really wish I had done a true ADV style ride report for this, especially now looking back on it. So much happened every day that is lost now, aside from a few random photos and the like. Crazy.
Ride Reports:
2011 - South America on Three Wheels
2010 - DC to AK and back on a 106cc scooter (mini-report)

This one deserves to be kept up near the front.

An inspiration to those who can't afford, or can't justify, spending 30 large on an "adventure" bike with all the farkles. It's the rider who makes it an adventure bike, not the other way around.

Amazing trip, and part of the inspiration for my upcoming trip to Prudhoe Bay on a Honda Rebel 250. It will not be nearly as long, as it will start and end in Phoenix, AZ. I am 52 and have fairly severe arthritis, so I'm not going to push it to much. I am however, taking things one step farther. Being a mechanic, I am building the Rebel out of parts from salvage yards, eBay, and have bought a few from members of various Rebel forums. Being 6'2" 220 pounds with a 34" inseam, I'm having to make some modifications, like moving the pegs/controls 4" forward, and adding a lot of foam and a beadrider cover to the seat. I considered doing this on my XT225 dual sport, but decided it had to be done on a streetbike after that guy did it on a stock Ninja 250.
