The mileage and ther nuber of Manchester's keeps changing as the invites come in. There are 39 we have outlined (a aprt from Manchester UK Man1). Even Jamaca has one. Some have disappeared in hurracanes or floods, and some are nor accesible in one road trip. The final route and numbers will be depending heavily on just which states the sponsors want to cover.
Desite the Long gap, I am still here and still planning. The NEW BMW R1200GS Adventure is in my garage, and despite not being the Triumph Rocket or Harley I would have liked for the USA section (most of the trip) It has a great pedigree, a massive 400 mile tank, and tend to be very reliable. I have had some interest from potential sponsors but the current financial problems in the UK and USA are not helping. Any how, the bike is ready, I am ready, just need the £25k to get the video production system and trip on its way.
