Can you imagine bands of 20-30 pirates on the TAT.

It's actually too bad they didn't keep a line in that direction.

Adventure touring in this country started long before motorcycles were ever invented.

They were pioneers back then - I mean they were called Pioneers.

They did for me. The first real motorcycle I ever rode was my neighbors brand new Rapido 125. God I loved that bike even though it got me in a world of shit with my dad. I went out and spent my paper route money on a new Kawasaki KE125. And he was PISSED. But I haven't owned anything but "enduro" bikes since 1976 thanks to that Harley-Davidson.

I'm sure you don't use that term to their face,though. Only from the safety of your basement.

I think the Conestoga wagon was the first adventurer tourer in the US.

I do. I also tease them when they have a meeting with 20+ people and there are only two bikes in the parking lot (due to rain).

I say: Well you all have on your Pirate costumes but how the hell did you all fit on two bikes.

People who dress like pirates do not mind being told they dress like pirates.

Can you imagine in this age of farkles and 100 hp BMW station wagonstroms if someone made a new 175 dual sport for the American market?



As a matter of trivia, was that a 175 dirt bike with a tag and indicators?

That's a very cool ad. Thanks for posting it.
