disagree.....

marry the right woman, one who also shares your sense of adventure (but not until your at least into your 30's).

Never procreate is more like it .... now THAT will tie you (and your wallet) down for a loooong time

I found this RR this morning and almost quit reading at page 2, but the "bro's" somehow ended up growing on me
I'm glad I stuck with it, very cool

Thanks for the ride report. I have done some of the roads (and many others in Arkansas). The Oark store is a treat. Thanks again for sharing this with us.
P.S. Bro............

Shed loved the RR. Read it all at work today and I'm still employed

Loved your attitude and your writing. Hope you keep riding and writing. It was refreshing, entertaining and just the right amount of suspense. A great memory for you!

We're known as Volunteers for a reason. Thanks Tn bros for representing

I'd have to say this was one of the most entertaining RR's I've read.

When I was reading it I heard the voice of a guy I used to work with years ago. He was a bro'd out kind of dude.

Keep on shredding, young bro.

awesome ride report man.

I had a bad ass time following your journey. Such an epic series of events and encounters. I got such a crack out of the xterras and dumping the bike in OR and cracking the case after all of those miles.

Very fitting.

I'm jealous. Someday soon i'm gonna do it

There was a TAT RR a few years ago that was pretty good. Rider made it all the way out to Port Orford pretty unscathed. From there he rode up to a place where he could put his bike in a container to ship home. He needed to run the gas out of the tank so went for a ride. While in the parking lot he decided to do some wheelies. Long story short, the bike came all the way over on him breaking his ankle. Ended up in a cast for the flight home.

Enjoyed the RR. How often and how much oil did you have to add between changes?

Great RR, only one I have ever read that had me laughing out loud. Great solo adventure, it takes some balls to do this solo.

Megashred you rock. In the 1980's I was in my 20's I did 3 months and 13,000 miles around the USA, coast to coast.
I think you stole my 1980s sunglasses.
Meet any sweet babes?

Awesome RR bro while you are still a grom in my book you shredded a righteous ride. You avoided any major sand facials and chose to bail in all the right places. Off the wall read bro.
