Exploring CA instead of riding further south?
With all the costs involved, I'm starting to reconsider riding all the way to Argentina, I would like to do it, but for the cost of shipping back, I could ride through every country in CA, and home again.
With the bike I've got, I'm ideal suited to pavement and gravel, mountains, desert and long days are no problem, but mud and narrow trails are a bit due to weight(without bags, but full of gas the CX is over 500lbs.)
I can use just about any quality of water, and function without outside repairs etc, I'm well kitted out for that, but just not for the kinds of trails where a light dirt bike is better.
I am given to understand that SA might provide more of that, so it might be worth it all, I'm not really sure what to do.
I don't have the time to ride all the way to Argentina and return anymore.
