I just rode this summer with a friend to KS from FL & back in a weekend (4 days) and he's 73... that's one tough MF. He never once said anything negative in the 90+ degree weather and the 800 mile day. He was up before me and ready to go. I have a lot to look forward to (I hope).
Thanks to the Interstate Highway System, it is now possible to travel from coast to coast without seeing anything.

I never plan a ride, just the destination and that's always subject to change.
