You have taken the whole point of riding a motorcycle and run with it.. This type of adventure outing is, in my opinion, the finest use of a Motorcycle.

thanks for taking us along with you.

Thanks for the complements. And thanks for reading, I'm sorry it's so friggen long.

I've got a bit more stuff from the two days we spent riding around Torrey but I'm headed off on a cruise for a week (gotta take care of the wife, you know. I've had my vacation, now she gets hers- poor me. )

I'll post up the last two days of good stuff when I get back. You're probably not interested in the other two days of Highway 50 it took us to get back... Scratch that, I'm trying to forget that part, I'm not gonna write about it!

Let's see if this thing will let me post the GPS tracks for those of you who know what to do with them...


Nope, looks like I'll have to post a link when I get them up on my site.

Thanks for the post. Would you reconsider your bike choice after using your 640 on this ride? A smaller bike maybe?

Your description sounds like

Great story!

haha...if you had seen the bike he used to so shite like this on, you'd have thought the 640ADV was like a pro Supercross bike in comparison...

I think that the 640A is about perfect for the ride. It's huge tank make worrying about gas kinda insignificant. Also, there's factory and aftermarket accessories for it that make setting it up for luggage a "bolt on" ordeal. Some people don't like the hard bags but after the pounding they took on my get-off, I'm a believer... The sub frame is pretty light as big bikes go, and Luke's home job rack put a bit too much leverage on his, and started a nice bend. I suspect that smaller bikes would not be up for carrying such a load. There were a few spots where a smaller bike would have been nice, but not so many that I'd want to give up the advantages of this one.

The 640 Adventure is a keeper.

Boney, Long time no see. I guess while my dual sport was collectin dust yours was makin it.

The bike swap must have made it a dream for a trip like this.

I will try to lurk ADV more often and maybe get in shape for your next one.

Until then keep riding them and writing about it for those who don't have a leather pouch like you.

Muddy

PS:I have 250 hours of paid time off that is just beggin to be burned. And incase you dont remember me I did your Mendo forest ride last year.
