I love this story. Thanks so much for telling it. Its really inspirational and fun.

I'm quite curious to see how your adventure turned out.

(BTW: You also inspired me enough to get off my a$$ and register on advrider so I could tell you this :-)

Hey RicH2,

You can click on "View Unread" and it will take you to where you left off. I don't know about everyone else but the "View Unread" option sure makes it easy to keep track of the many RRs I'm subscribed to.

just loving the flow of your ride report and pictures. Working on the bike as almost a daily chore. Kinda sorta reminds me of Motorcycle travel in the 60s where you needed to be a mechanic or have a lot of money to pay them to keep them old bike going when roaming about the country.

I loved AZ! Page is literally one of the only places I've visited where I would want to live. Alamo Lake in the desert is one of the strangest places I've ever been. No one could ever convice me it's anything other than a pit to throw tax dollars in. But overall the state was fantastic!

Wrenching on the bike never stopped. I can change the oil and adjust the chain on this bike in under 10 minutes without evening thinking about it. It's all muscle memory now.

more like 10 minute oil change and 1/2 hour clean up I love these 2 pics and all the rest of the pics .
Your RR is definately 1 of the best I've ever read

haha, very true. that first oil change in las vegas NM was a disaster! i felt like i was leaving the scene of a crime when we rode away! the funniest thing to me is looking at the picture you can see i started to run in one direction and freaked out and went the other way

Great thread!

Love seeing the older Hondas out on the road! Best value out there - I can't wait to take my '77 XL350 out to see the country this summer.
