Cool.

I wonder if he'll even be able to use much of TN now?....they went on a mission to pave every road in that state since he plotted the original TAT.

Looking towards home....needed to be heading that direction soon before the cold set back in....











Stopped in the middle of my lane this is on my Left.











....and this is looking down from the saddle of my bike immediately to my Right from the same spot.











Can you believe it?....only one shack shot for the day!




I'm a ride junkie and I was jonsin' for a fix.

I don't know how many more rides are in that old thing...actually I'm thinking about getting another land barge an old Gold Wing or something.

what's the mileage by now on your DR?

gold wing? you need suspenders, regrow your beard, and a teddy-bear harness....

An old 'wing would make a good 'tow vehicle' for taking a smaller dual sport out West. My old XS can pull a trailer but....

Not sure the exact mileage on the DR but it's in the mid 40s....and 3rd gear has been broken for almost 1/2 of that!
...still runs pretty strong tho....

p.s. The old XS has actually hauled the old DR down to Georgia and back!





The only real reason to do such a thing was just to see if I could.

I think you should get yourself an Ural Hack with a "flatbed" and put the DR on it....


and who needs a 3rd gear anyway?

If I had a hack it would have to be used for the dogs...and a Ural can only pull itself @ about 50mph...how slow would it be with a trailer?


Oh, 3rd gear?....yeah, you're right, who needs it?!




Don't forget...that bike has a home-made ignition too.

I was more thinking something along this lines (and have an easy conversion for the pooches):
