Oh shite this is gonna be GREAT! What's up with your buddy from the island? Is the plan for him to ride as far east as possible and then find a way back to Cali. so he can head back to Hawaii? If so what is up with the bike? Put it into the van as an extra in case of a failure or do you have someone else to ride it east?
I have to share this with a few buddies!

This is insane. This makes me feel like a completely normal person for wanting to do this on my WR250R.

I've got the CT110 back in Australia. For extra range I fitted a Honda XR250R tank, it's an easy fit and just sits in place with a couple of cable ties to secure it.
I'll be following.

Never bothered to take an accurate reading and as I'm usually riding with wide open throttle it's probably not that great, I'd guess around 80MPG

Subbed! Fair winds to you; sounds like a great trip. I'm building a CT90 myself from the frame up, but I'm using an original Honda engine ('71 engine in a '76 frame).
BTW, there is a set of XL125 forks on ebay right now for $60 shipped, buy it now price.

Wow!!!

Rode a 1965 ct200, Trail 90, from 50 miles south of Los Angeles to
Yellowstone Park in 1972. 1080 miles and $3.08 in gas. Still have log book and sore ass.
Do you need someone to take over from your friend thats going back to the islands?
