dadogs' big trip

For everyone keeping up, I heard from my brother last night. 600 mi the first day, safely to Indiana. He's well on his way to Nebraska.

Thanks for the update. Go Dadogs! (Advil and Anti-Monkey butt powder are really good for these trips...)

Up for a ride?

I was at a Harley store and a guy bum rushes the sales kid squawking about monkey butt powder. Sales kid says "sorry were out." The guy flips out and walks away cussing to himself. The super smooth sales kid looks at me and says "that guy must live far away."

Godspeed dadogs!

Dang. Sounds like the old guy is makin' some serious tracks out to Nebraska.

After many years and many dreams I have realized my goal of riding in all 50 states!

Where are you? You don't call? You don't text? WTF?!

I stay safe and have a great return trip. Enjoy it. The weather is one of those things that you will never forget and say ... I went through that crud!

When you're back ... my turn to treat you to sushi.

3443 miles and I'm home and alive! Will give a report when my hands stop tingling.

side note: met a woman who rides a 919 and her husband a ST, they did 10,000 from Jersey to Cali and back....I'm NOT worthy!

Glad to hear you're still alive and kicking! Welcome back. Also, don't think this long ride makes you any less of a homo. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
