Wine and slow riding sounds pretty good. Do they eat chili in Chile?



Oh, 1st post.

Awsome article! It's like stepping back in time to an era of when most of the bikes were born, and then some. There are a lot of places in Northern Ca. that I have seen that could be nice to do that in. But you have to put up with a lot of tourists, traffic, and high prices. Too bad you have to travel half the world to enjoy a ride like that.

Fun read.

I often think about owning a vintage bike, but the guys I know that have them are always "working" on one thing or another. They usually are trying to find some part from 1958 and they are much better with a wrench.

I'm afraid when it breaks it will stay broke. Maybe I could duplicate the experience with a 2005 Super Glide.(just kidding)

Now that is an adventure tour. If you've never tried flipped brake/shifting, take plenty of time to get used to it. If you think learning BMW controls is a challenge, boy are you in for a treat. Especially if the shift pattern is reversed too.
