I once toured all the states West of the Rockies on a Suzuki 500. I had my wife, a pup tent, one burner stove and a couple of sleeping bags that zipped together on the back. We felt we were quite the adventurers. We met a somewhat younger couple on a BMW doing much the same thing somewhere in Colorado. I asked them where they lived. The wife pointed to the motorcycle. There must be something about that boxer engines that makes people crazy.
