Transamerica Trail - planning phaze
With me finally getting back to some decent riding capbility since smashing the knee a few years ago, I have a desire to do a real adventure ride and make up for lost time. Combine that with me turning 50 next year, I've said to the wife that I'm planning on my mid life crisis next year and want to ride across America, so while I expected some resistance to the request...she actually said yes..what the!..sheesh, now I better start seeing what it's all about.
So now that I have emotional approval, I need to do some planning/logistics and after reading phreakyphils TAT ride he actually shipped his bike over there, so I also need to make the decision to buy over there OR ship my 690. Personally, I'd like to take the 690 as I know it, and have no doubt that it will be awesome to ride. Plus for me, I don't just want to ride any old shitter just because it might be cost effective or have more perceived relibility, I want to enjoy the bike as much as the scenary and trail...so no 250 for me.
I will reach out to phreakyphil to find out his experience for shipping, US compliance and all that crap...but does anyone have any experience with shipping to the US of A?
...back in the saddle, and getting a little!
