  1. No, I had to use a translator. Italian is such a beautiful language. So many ways to say love, and it shows in it's people.

    Noob trailer question

    Like Bruce said, A utility trailer is the way to go. More room than most truck beds, easier to load bikes and gear, it can be modified (axle rotate to below leaf springs replace the tiny 12" tire/wheels and replace with 13" ones '$140 on walmart.com') now you have an "overland hauler" like I do. I recommend buying the trailer at Tractor Supply Co.. I bought their smaller one for $500.00; added a sheet of plywood over the metal mesh floor, then installed some tie down eye hooks, welded two 3 foot lengths of angle iron from the tongue too the trailer (to strengthen), and finished by bolting down a $31 Plano sportsman's box over the tongue for water resistant storage. Easy peezy! Hope this helps! I pull mine with a Subaru Forrester and I get to save $70,000.00 on a new Ford F250! I would send a picture of the trailer but my wife is using it in Anza Borrego State Park for the week (carried two twin beds, two large camp chairs, big EZ Up, Folding table, Gazelle 4 person tent, two huge sleeping bags, big ice chest, propane for the two burner stove etc.. you know, the basics for camping!

    Iron Butt Rally

    I wonder what state his 2 stroke is licensed? I realized that I could not enter the IB after riding from the Mexican border to San Francisco in one gulp. My ears took a few days to begin to hear again; and my butt has still not forgiven me LOL.

    Why it's best to run DOT tires

    The Anza Borrego area is composed of 90% loose sand. Non DOT Soft / Intermediate rated tires ("wide open blocks") ultimately translates into rider safety due to the motorcycle's best traction capabilities. I agree if a DS rider slides out on the asphalt into the path of an oncoming vehicle (most likely the rider's fault) that the inspecting Highway Patrol person will note whether or not the DS rider's tires are DOT approved thus the insurance companies may in fact not to back their insured rider. So by all means choose a DOT tire to keep you safe with the law and the insurance companies. For me I select the best tire for the riding conditions I am currently riding, and this keeps me the safest on the dirt. I ride 90% dirt 10% slab.
