Re: Lois Pryce - Lois on the Loose - Touring Question?
I certainly am not of a mind to attempt something like that, but my opinion at first would be a K1200 GS, then I think about the weight and maybe a 650 or 800 GS. That is thinking in BMW terms though, there are certianly other bikes that could tread the line between function and weight, like a KLR, or Tenere.
I would like to be able to carry enough spare parts and creature comforts to make the trip more likely to be completed, so the really small bikes would not be my choice, but the weight if dropped would probably keep me away from the heavy ones.
Not an easy choice! Any of the above would do it, just depends on how you want to do it.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
EX: '01 Black LT, BAT BYKE (Totaled at 110,000 miles)
IBA SS, BB, BBG, 10/10ths.
No bike now, but maybe in the future.
