Thanks for sharing, Tad. I've done a couple of 1000 mile weekends and thoroughly enjoyed the travel...
Your website is inspiring. Time to start thinking about longer journeys.</p>


PS: great pictures!</p>

How's that test/comparo with the new Sporty coming along? Looking forward to it, too.

Of course, if some of us had the time, we could do Alaska TO Brazil - and then some more.



What's the record for Prudhoe Bay to Tierra del Fuego?

Somebody actually did that trip on a BMW R69 back in the 60's. BMW had ads in Cycle World that chronicled the several month trip. What an adventure. Especially considering the roads back them. Imagine trying that an an AMF Harley. Or a BSA.

Actually it was Mrs. Cook's idea that you ride point.

Read "Riding the Edge" by Dave Barr if you would like a taste of tripping on an AMF Harley. There was also a web site showing guys in the 50's on their Panheads riding mountain trails in the snow and jumping them. Pretty cool stuff.
