wow..Ride safe, be careful. $600 is not much money at all. You just reminded me of myself 20 years ago, going to Canada from Russia with $80 in my pocket. I'm still here

Just to Clarify

I already did this, but I sold the bike in New York. Got back a couple days ago. Didn't bring any electronics so I'm posting it now.

That settles the question of how you lost a camera in a place you hadn't been to yet.

It must have really been HOT! But the whole idea is classic. Wish I'd thought of it...

Waking up to the a flat tire and the Sierras

Not really something I enjoy doing. Taking off the rear wheel of this thing is a pain. It doesn't have a center stand so some milk crates underneath and a bungee cord holding it to a near by air pump is the best I can do without putting it on its side. Took about an hour and wasn't too pleasant. Like an idiot I forgot to bring tire irons so I had to use my open ends to take out the tube.

My home and one of my favorite places in the world, the Sierras steep, sheer, and sudden.

Sweet RR so far - kind of an American version of Nathan Millward's trip around the world on his Postie.

So in short, may the wind be at your back (a must with 70cc's) and if you need anything (don't be afraid to ask), there are those of us at ADVRider who will lend a helping hand (or a few bucks) - be safe!
He's home...Looking forward to the story.

And you guys are going to have to wait a little, I have no pictures of Nevada due to camera loss... so I'm going to try and cook up some Ernest Hemingway writing.
