Hi All,

Just scouting through the internet and came across these postings so many times, I thought I would register.

... needto include the other 1/8th, so from now on, it's we or us!!



WE puchased 2001 GL in April 2009 - first REAL tourer. Since then, done 6,000 miles - a lot considering this is in addition to a car. Somewhat impressed with the fine US engineering here, all seems to be holding together.



Story goes...

I have not ridden a bike for let's say, 14 years, back then a Yamaha XJ900 - nice bike, but... Then, I for some reason decide to buy a 'Wing, not only did I not know anything much about it, but it seemed to suit OUR requirements for getting out and about. Liked it so much that we've decided to leave little old New Zealand (small island off south-eastern coast of Australia [Australia - largish piece of real estate in southern hemisphere]).



So, selling up the bike shortly, going to US and will buy a new 'Wing and tour around US for several months, then head off to UK.



Since we're taking on a bit of an unknown entity,we've decided to PLAN - not something I do regularly.



Phase I

Buy bike, trailer, camping gear and other necessary equipment to travel around US during May 2010 to July 2010.



Phase II

Plan route - partially accomplished, needs some work, but 50% completed.



Phase III

Activities en-route - still under planning.



Phase IV

End up in NY and get bike ready for shipping to UK - to be worked on.



Phase V

Leave US - will be sorted in early July 2010
