The bikes are tanks. I am not worried about the engine as much as all the other little parts. And at around 30,000 miles it will need some work. However, I am confident that it will be an ideal bike for the trip and I can't wait to start riding.
I am also trying to get my dad and friends Eddie and Jason to meet me in Ushuaia to ride a section of Patagonia around the middle of February. I'll keep yall posted, as it would be an amazing experience to share.
