    Good luck!! Should be one helluva ride. I tried to get into the Dirty Kanza, but my schedule is a junk show this year. Let us know how it goes!

    I have the Ti Fargo (featured in Overland Journal's last issue). It is an incredible bike. I'm not one to line up to buy Double Tap, but I must admit, it does work quite well. No complaints from me....

    To expand on my recommendation, I've been pleasantly surprised to find the Dakar does well enough for every situation I've put it through. It's better off-road than I am (see above). It is a little...

    I concur with p-nut. The Salsa is leagues ahead of the 520 or LHT which are specifically designed to somewhat represent traditional (read old) touring designs. For what it's worth, this small corner...

    We recently sold my wife's 150cc Vespa and holy cow, was that a scary proposition. Throngs of people lined up to buy it, and selling it was a sinch. We bought it for $2800, rode it for three years...

    I see no reason why you couldn't mount any light to this lid. It has a solid wrap around my head which is ideal for keeping larger light systems stable. It really is a great helmet.
