Talking ADV Rider is Undescribable!

Not sure if any of you guys are members on ADVrider.com, but it is one of the best forums I have ever been on. The info is great, and they cover all kinds of things, but the ride reports are indescribable. Some of the stories and photography are breathtaking. Anything from dual-sport death trips across Siberia and China, to BMW trips across America and South America. Serioulsy if you look at some of these reports you will read for hours and get a huge case of wanderlust. I will post a link to a few of my favorites. One thread a guy rides a hard tail chopper entirely around the globe!

Makes me want to swing a leg over the KLR and head out every time I go there.

I'm ready this one right now about a guy that rode from NC to Maine back and then to Alaska on an old Goldwing.

Yeah the story starts so bad and ends so tragically, one of the first ones I read, there are so many more that make up for it though!
