20,000 km roadtrip

Hey everyone,

I thought the bike riders of revscene may be interested in this. My cousin from Vermont is doing a 20,000km road trip with his dad on their bikes from Vermont to Alaska and back..in 6 weeks. He's starting on their trip today and will be blogging along the way. Here's his blog if you're interested in reading about their journey.

4WheelsLESS,

Try doing this:

(In Italian) Ilario Lavarra's Ride to Argentina I met up with the guy yesterday @ Scooter Hive. Guy flew in from Italy, rode from east coast USA, across the country, up Alaska and was here yesterday. His ultimate destination is Argentina...all this on a Vespa Sprint.

hehe...yes I do envy the Vespa's luggage compartment and ankle windshield! What a comfy ride to do this on....just takes a bit longer.

WTF! on a scooter! Does that thing even go fast enough to be on major roads?

Yes, but it's not a REAL Vespa.
