Back in April we reported that our long, lost Brooklyn Traveler, Pipe Adams had crossed over the equator on his mission to set himself free, and see the world on a 1970’s Honda CB500T, which is not top of the list of adventure motorcycles. Well, he has just passed the 1 year mark on his travels, mostly in Central and South America…After 1 year on the road, Pipe has seen some incredible adventures, and documented them on his blog. When I read his stories, always wrapped in a road-weary warp of poetic tongue, I instantly have wanderlust.
Kudos to making it a year on the road, with a bike NOT inspired by Charlie and Ewan, piecing together a modern Burroughs-esque life, filled with adventure and the unknown.
It’s always refreshing to see a guy (or gal) out there on the road, looking to experience the adventure of a lifetime. Even better when the adventure is done on an old Honda, and the trials and tribulations that come along with that. This is not an experience like ‘Long Way ‘Round.’ This is old school, seat of your pants, adventure on a bike that was last expected to make a trip like this (if ever), 35 years ago…
There are plenty of adventure motorcycles on the market these days, but this is not one of them. This is taking the experience to a whole new level, and we are proud to see Patch making this bike work for him.
