That looks wicked excellent! I would VERY SERIOUSLY consider this adventure (of a lifetime).
Instead of starting in VA, how about NH?
Kind of makes that KOUBA PILOT SCREW T-HANDLE PRETTY IMPORTANT.
Who the heck wants to wait while Mr. Screwdriver has to stop, hop off his bike, roll out his tool roll, find the scrrewdriver, adjust it, roll it back into his tool roll, mount it on the bike, re-start after stalling the engine and go.
Us Kouba carbed Thumper Riders will just reach down, give a quick twist and blast on, leaving Mr. Screwdriver in the Dust!

I figure I’ll need to ask for 5 consecutive weeks off from work. 4 to do the ride and 1 week to recover from a serious case of monkey butt!
I met these four Brits riding around the world on DR350s at the LA-B2V ride this year. Those guys were great! They had already been across Europe, Central Asia and through Japan before shipping their bikes to California. These guys had some pretty amazing stories. There is a little info on them from their woefully out of date web page at http://www.terracirca.co.uk I think the worst thing they had to deal with thus far was one of the guy’s bikes was stolen the day after they uncrated them in LA. Any of you guys living in So Cal keep an eye out for a well used (~20,000 miles) DR 350 with a GB plate and all kinds of funky brackets/braces/mounts/boxes welded to the frame. Checkout http://www.millhill....terracirca.html for some pics of their loaded down bikes. Amazing…
The $**thead that stole Gerry Vince’s motorcycle needs to be shot!
