Whatever you have now, whatever "style" it is, will probably do fine. It will go around the world. Maybe a little slower, maybe a little more repair work, and you may have to pick your route carefully - but it will make it.

Harley/Guzzi

Hi there, if you wonder about suitability of a Harley check out Guzzigalore where a Dutch bike journalist posts about his Alaska to TDF trip of about three years. Scroll down, watching on the right side. From about Colombia it's in English, but photos from before are great and there's a bad online translater at foot of page. Note: the ship, the Shtahlratte, which offers transport from Panama to Colombia. Really enjoy your travels, I'm envious, Linzi.
