This post here on Splodz Blogz is for anyone who is interested in reading about my North American road trip. Coined #Zartusacan (which stands for “Zoe and Allister’s Road Trip of the USA and Canada, if you were wondering), this ten-week motorcycle tour of the west of the USA and Canada was a dream that LincsGeek and I worked hard for two years to make happen. With an expected 10,000 miles travelled, these blog posts will give you a taste of what I got up to together with lots of information for anyone wishing to do something similar.
With my bike.
