Anthony Gots is an old friend of mine from my Whistler days. I've had him on Facebook for ever and recently noticed he was on an epic motorcycle trip from Whistler to South America. The best part was the little 1980's Honda he was on. Since October, I've followed his trip via social media and now that he's home, I got him to send me a story to share on the Road Apples blog. Here's what he sent!
My Trip to the End of the World
October 1st 2017. The day I left Whistler and set out on the most epic ride of my life! Trying to beat the cold, I packed up my bike and set off south to go through the America’s, with Ushuaia, Argentina as the end goal in mind. The southernmost city in South America, and the world... the end of the road!
On the trip I took my trusty steed, an all original 1985 Honda XL 350, Rhonda the Honda. A single cylinder air cooled beast that would go until the end of time. While my friend Simon, was on a 2007 Suzuki V-strom 650. The main reason I decided to take the Honda was that it’s simple. It’s easy to work on, There was no shortage of Honda garages or parts the entire way down, I felt comfortable riding it and well, it was the only bike I had haha. But the best bike to take is the one you already have!
