Where is Niels?


For two weeks during September 2011, I'm riding my motorcycle all over the northwestern states of the USA. Here you can see my progress, pulled from a webapp on my iPhone. See our planned route map here.

The Bike

Here's the interesting part. I'm riding a 33 year old Kawasaki KZ650-B2. It's rusted, ugly, and only does about 40mpg. It's constantly broken down, sounds like a trash compactor eating a bag of ball bearings, handles like a truck, and is faster than an M3 - a very stupid and dangerous combination. Did I mention the stopping distance is, what, 2 miles? I hate it almost as much as I love it. And for all it's faults, it just refuses to let me down. So, hey, let's see how far I make it. Hunter S. Thompson would understand.
