Get off the Interstate. You can ride the Deep South Loop / TET adventure trail from FL to NC.

We have trailered bikes from home (northern N.H.) to Virginia- time constraints mean using 98% interstate- BORING on 2 wheels- and the return trip would have us arriving home in the dark. Due to the possibility of meeting moose, we do not ride in the dark here.

Moose are starting to re-establish themselves in parts of New York now. Moose hair is quite dark, making them difficult to see at night, as you note. To address this problem, I hear the New York State legislature is considering a bill that would require all moose entering New York from another state, or any moose born in New York after January 1, 2014 be equipped with retro-reflective striping to increase their visibility during low light conditions. If passed, this law would have the tri-fold benefit of saving the lives of countless moose, reducing damages due to moose-automobile collisions, and increasing the sale of retro-reflective tape.

When contacted for a statement, Governor Andrew Cuomo, avid outdoorsman that he is, is rumored to have said "What's a moose?"

That particular lot could be done with the Ural towing the other two.

Would probably take him 5 days to get there via the TET vs 13 hrs on the slab in the truck.

Can't tow with the Ural for another year, voids the warranty.

There is a reason for that.
