My name is Lam Wind (spell Nguyen, but pronounce Wind).
I lived in Memphis, TN for awhile now and are getting the travel itch.
I have own my ruckus for 2 years and now decided that she is going to take me to places.
I figure that the best way to see america is by bicycle, but i do hate the sweat, so the ruckus is the best option.
I will be mostly camping out in the wild or stealth camping when i can't find public land.
My wife is going to school, so that freed me up a few months/years to go to the school of life.
My ruckus ("Little Red") has a few mods. here's the list:
- a new varianter
- a new cdi
- 12v cigarette plug/USB plug
- a motorcycle alarm (it's rarely used)
- a side kickstand
- a extra attach fuel tank.
My current plan is to head out this thursday to the Smokey Mountain. Hang around there for a while maybe a week or so), then from there, i don't really know where to go next. I have never seen some of our national parks, such as Zion and Yosemite. After that, if my hall pass is still good, maybe i will head up to Alaska. I have a friend in Mexico that want me to visit, after that, maybe somewhere down to brazil. My plans are pretty much open. My only restriction is that I want to keep my range to about 100 miles per day.
But I will need some help. Since I don't know anyone out there, except one person in Mexico, i'm asking the Ruckus community to help me. I need navigators and guides. If you can show me any neat place to see and any neat place to camp (wilderness camping) I will be in your debt. You don't have to be there (but if you are there, it will be way better to hang/ride with), just text me the GPS coordinates and a small blur (one or two sentence about it), I will built my map and route with it. I will be updating my blog and the TR forums with my scooter trip. My blog are not quite ready yet about for this trip, but you can hit it soon when i can blog more about my scootering trip.
