as Dr. Nick would put it "hey Everybody!"
im new to the forum... heard about it from LAZ1 and thought it would be worth checking out.
Ill start off with a little about myself, i work for the Canadian Coast Guard as a Senior engineer, which means i get 4 weeks off every other 4 weeks... paid... and i just baught my first "adventure" bike. a 2011 DL650 with the adventure package. LOVE the bike. and am looking forward to doing some trips on it.
my first "big" trip will be baja mexico in march. then maybe the mojave after i hit overland Expo in May, but we will see. speaking of which anyone gonna be there?
What i would really like to do is fly my bike down to southern SA and ride home. im married one year now and would preferably like to do the trip 2 up... or maybe i can get my wife on her own bike we will have to see.
so that is me. Cody, Cody1771 as i am on ALL boards i sign up on. i wouldnt be suprised if im recognized from other sites as i am a forum addict hehe.
one quick question that the search function failed me on. is there a list for a full set of tools for my bike? im sure i could put one together with some work but a complete list would be great if anyone knows of one or maybe a thread. thanks!
oh yeah... grew up freeriding, and Downhill racing, then progressed into Dirtbikes so off road is nothign new to me. i got into 4x4'ing (overlanding) for a number of years after graduating college but got sick of poor gas milage and expensive operating costs. so went back to what i enjoy most
being on 2 wheels!
