When I did a trip on my previous SV650 from Montreal to Vancouver, I thoguht I was one of the most frugal LD rider, but there's someone much more hard core! It took me 10 days to complete that trip, but this guy did it in 12 days without using freeways while covering Niagara Falls and Grand Canyon.
I don't know if this is the right category to post, but I wanted to share this report of a guy who rode from NY to CA, through Niagara Falls, Great Lakes, then Historic Route 66 all the way on a beaten up EX500, which got already 120,000mi on odo when it started its trip.
I really enjoyed reading, he sounded like a bit n00b, like riding with a nail on rear tire, only with 10psi? Not carrying chain lube? I just love something / someone less perfect.
