an idea

my Z1000, loaded down at the start of the Alaska Highway

I guess this idea started back in the summer of 2007…I took a leave of absence from work, with plans to ride a Kawasaki Z1000 around the US and Canada for a few months. Before the end of the almost 18,000 mile trip, I’d already decided that someday I needed to do a bigger trip, and at the very least, that trip would have to involve leaving North America.
