Awsome article! It's like stepping back in time to an era of when most of the bikes were born, and then some. There are a lot of places in Northern Ca. that I have seen that could be nice to do that in. But you have to put up with a lot of tourists, traffic, and high prices. Too bad you have to travel half the world to enjoy a ride like that.
I often think about owning a vintage bike, but the guys I know that have them are always "working" on one thing or another. They usually are trying to find some part from 1958 and they are much better with a wrench.
I'm afraid when it breaks it will stay broke. Maybe I could duplicate the experience with a 2005 Super Glide.(just kidding)
Thanks for the article....I always appreciate a vintage themed piece. This tour seems really cool.....lots of folk with vintage stuff dont ride em thwemselves much les you ride it. Another experience to put on my "gotta do one day list"
Now that is an adventure tour. If you've never tried flipped brake/shifting, take plenty of time to get used to it. If you think learning BMW controls is a challenge, boy are you in for a treat. Especially if the shift pattern is reversed too.
This would be a nice ride except for the wine. How bout a beer what the heck do you guys have against a good lagar. Do they have radical militia problems in chile I will have to check janes and find out if I get Oldman Napped I want it to be with a bunch of lagar drinking amazonian women who love a fat man on viagra.
