I have a new motorcycle! It’s only fitting for an adventure motorcycle blogger to actually own an adventure motorcycle. For those of you that don’t know, an adventure motorcycle is designed for both on-road and off-road, or “enduro” styled. Just as I was in the market, my kind friend in Antalya was selling his endure bike. The bike was a perfect fit for my needs and my wallet, so flew down to pick it up.
My new bike is a 2005 Honda NX400 Falcon. It has been immaculately maintained and in great condition. Ready for some new adventures in Ordu. Now I just have to ride it back 1200 km (730 miles) in the middle of winter.
