Thank you all, this is really really good stuff.
I completely forgot about the way we kept our children quiet in the car on long trips,
you know counting VW bugs or license plates from other states.
I know I have found that when you stare at the odometer all that runs through your head is crap I only went
100mi or 20mi or whatever. That really does kill the fun of the trip, making the end point the goal not the fun
of the ride.
I love the counting up and totaling the price of the farkles, if it doesn't keep you busy it might make you cry!
I forgot the horror of riding east in the morning, so true.
And it's so true the more you ride the further you need to ride to see something different. I was a road salesman
for years and I can remember my wife saying lets go for a ride and all I could think of was I needed to ride four
or five hours just to get out of my daily territory.
2007 R1200GS almost farkeled to perfection!
