Yesterday I dug out my old motorcycle with the idea of getting it road ready for spring. It was a monster bike in its day, but there are modern bikes out there that will pass me like I'm sitting on jacks. However, the old bike climbed Mt. Washington and could easily break highway speeds. How much power do you really need?
Then you get guys like Ed March. Just a head's up. While he's funny as heck, he's also more than a bit rude.
To sum up, this guy's been all over the world riding a little Honda c90. Ed shows how to adventure travel for small money. Once again going simple has its advantages.
Ed did inspire me. No, I don't want to ride a Honda 90 all over the world -exactly. I was thinking that I could pick up something like a small scooter on Craigslist. It would be a blast to go on an extended trip around New England sticking to twisty old back roads. Small scooters that get crazy good gas mileage combined with stealth camping would make for a pretty interesting cheap adventure.
After watching Ed's videos I really don't have any excuse.
