So I get this sudden urge to fly to the East, buy a vintage bike, ride across Canada, visit New York on the way back. The film "One Week" probably had a strong influence, I'm thinking of picking up a newly (engine) rebuilt Norton, or a Triumph or something similar.
I plan to fly out there, get some gear in ON or NL depending on where I end up buying the bike. Also travel insurance, tow truck insurance, health insurance. Ride down to NY, then Coast to Coast via the super flat and super straight Canadian prairies. Staying at hostels, couch surf, camp the entire trip.
Any thoughts, preparation, packing list, slap in the face etc? 3 weeks max as school starts in Sep and there is the Aug 6 track day that I don't want to miss.
