my Goldwing update
thanks to you all.
West highland way completed. Not much fun..
Dropped 4 times.. Bloody heavy
Thanks for the car tyre suggestion. This made a big differance to the bike off road. But not to sure when on the twisty roads around Glen Coe and Kinlochleven. ( bum doing rabbit poo inpersonations) but exellent off road.
Items I forgot.
and sleeping bag. Thank god I was not on my rtw trip. longway home. (sorry)
Will I do it on a goldwing?? Why not, it will be lots of fun and lots of picking it up and I will be very fit at the end..
Only concerns now are secure parking,repairs,tyres and cost of parts when I break down and can I fix it..... But these are only small worries as I have now given myself a longer time limit for the trip (say 4 years plus).
I will be doing more of these trips over winter and hope for lots of snow so I can ride and test the bike with the car tyre on.
I think I have now answered my own question on A'm I mad? ANSWER IS NO BUT I HELPS.
Thanks to all who have given advice and links to other rider sites..
Ps cost of damage to bike from the drops £362. (its only money and you can earn it back. but you only have one life so use it to the fullest and only leave a broken used up f&^%ed body behind when you go.)
web site is under construction and will be oneworldbiker.co.uk
will up date training and progess here.. So lets have fun and ride.
