The red Honda still runs (after it's third engine overhaul, I have 10 bent valves from it on my display case). You (anyone reading this) are welcome to have it for $1000...



Selling points include stranding Daan on the highway, in Canada, and at a gas station each time with a new form of catistrophic engine failure!

I really need to quit reading this thread since I can't make it this year. Last year's ride was probably the best dual-sport adventure I have had yet!

At least this year I should make it up there for the Paris 2 Dacre

Keep the pics coming! you guys are really stoking me up for this.

And in regard to the logo...how about a black silhouette above the words, of a rider standing in a puddle pointing. Like the one pic "the go around is over there"
