    Hi – Thanks for the invite. I am pretty interested in the ride but I don’t own a Triumph 800. My Dual Sport bike is a Yamaha 250 cc (plated, registered, etc.). I can pretty much keep up with just about anything on trails and backroads, but if there is a lot of highway driving on this trip I would be inclined to pass.
    I am definitely interested though. Please let me know if my bike is OK for this tour.
    Thanks, Peter Hubbard.

    I am signed up. Been ridng here for 50 years. Interested in the routes Jimmy picks. Thank the lord I know all the bypass routes. I always thought I was a pretty good rider but riding a large adventure bike brings a whole new level to the game. Bought. 1200 xc from Freedom and have been having a great time. Riding this event should be an invaluable experiance, not to mention the food, drink, and company.
