    Nice! Sometimes it's nice to just go on a long relaxing ride

    That's awesome Bruce!

    I need a good road trip, they soothe the soul.
    Did someone say custom printed Tshirts??

    Looks like a sweet trip Bruce. "Speed bump" is a good description for some of the frost heaves up there

    That R1 is sick lookin

    I'd love to try a streetbike but I know I'd like it too much and that would be a danger to my health.

    Riding Solo on a long trip is akin to jumpin in a time machine,
    only a few hrs. ago, i was in a place, seemingly back in time, with residents who haven't left the local area in thier entire lives......& they look at & speak to you like you ARE a time traveler.

    I had a Ol Vt. farmer tell me i looked like i was ready to go "scuba divin" er somethin........." w/ all that stuff you gaot oan"


    Then theres the sense of time while on the bike................i can ride for 8-10hrs.,yet it only seems like 4 or 5!

    I just got my passport last fall. I needed it for a trip to Europe last month where again I racked up 4,000KM on a bike in less than 2 weeks touring northern Europe.
    I've been to canada 4 or 5 times and this was my first time crossing at the I-91 border crossing. The road were great and the scenery was awesome unlike the other places I had crossed in the past.

    Time does seem to go by much much faster being solo. Seems like you had just stopped, next you you know the fuel light is on again. Kinda wish I had a bike with a little more range...mines running on fumes at 125 miles
