You are at the top of the heap as far as I am concerned in the ADV world. What you did was truly as adventure. Makes my ride to Alaska on a big ole GS sound like a ride around the block. Dude, you rock...

That or you are truly insane. You will fit in well on this site. Welcome aboard.

Yo Trackpete!

Hey Pete!

When I joined this site, the first message to pop up was
"WELCOME TO THE ASYLUM." Dude, you are truly insane and I'm happy to find you here in the ASYLUM!!! A truly gutsy adventure and interesting trip. I checked out your FB page and really enjoyed the commentary and photos of your trip with "RED" in S.A..

Good luck and keep the stories coming! Thanks for letting us tag along :)

I don't think that it has to mean anything... other than an amazing experience that you will always treasure.

The pictures that you posted on Facebook are beautiful... I really loved the unique self portraits.

I'm planning a similar odyssey from DC to AK on a 50cc Ruckus I'll outfit for the trip. It'd be great to buy you a beer and get some feedback if still in DC.

Yamaha riva 200 (1987)

From laval to lac-megantic runing around for a couple of hours their, and back to Laval (Quebec,Canada) 375 miles. (600km)

Its a 26 years old scooter, but it feels like new, so i say lets test it. Very well built and confortable. 0 issues. So the next one will be much more far.

Meeting a Legend

TrackPete: Your trip was as interesting and outlandish as some of the stuff Nick Saunders has done. I was wondering, when you met him in the middle of nowhere, did you have any idea who you were talking to?

What did he have to say about what you were doing?
