Hey guys,
So far, I have driven from northern Canda to Costa Rica. 6000 miles. I was wondering how long you guys have been waiting before oil changes when just cruising. I have been changing about every 2500 miles. Also, I adjusted my valves before I left and was wondering how long I am good for on those.
I am also selling my bike when I get to Chile if anyone is interested.
PS Costa Rica is beautiful. The water, the beaches, the women!

I would not take a WR426 that far. Get something like an air cooled XR600 that you may be able to get parts for down in South America. Bring a gun. Be careful. Dont ride alone.
