/ Who rides motorcycles? #491
You'll probably enjoy this if haven't already visited:Nice ride IT. Be safe. Stop and smell the roses. Neal Peart, the drummer from Rush, rides long journeys IIRC on a Beemer. He likes going to exotic places and no one recognizes him. He can just be a normal fellow.
Here is a blog for some cool reading at nights. It is a chronological blog from his journey. It is kind of hard to get to the beginning, but he went thru a pro and con process for which bike to buy and take. He left his Tenere at home and took an XT250 for it's lightweight and simpleness. Here stateside, I would prefer the Tenere because we have mostly great roads.
