I was browsing this subs top all time posts yesterday and was inspired by the girl who traveled 2 years on a scooter so I thought I’d do something similar : overlanding

I posted originally to r/advrider but since I was inspired by a post I saw here I figured it belonged here as well!

Oh, and since this isn’t a bike specific sub I won’t assume knowledge of what it is. This is a 2017 Honda Africa Twin CRF1000L (manual not DCT)
