I made it home from the Cannonball.
5 weeks total
5,000 miles on the '28 Indian :)
2500 miles on the Kawasaki cop bike :/
1000 miles in a truck :(

Its good to be off a bike for a bit.
Wait... whats that noise in the garage?
Its the sobs of a neglected knucklehead!
It's even crying! (I'm guessing the oil spots under it are from tears)

OK, just a short ride......

I think you should pull yourself over for speeding, and then try to talk yourself out of the ticket

Looking forward to that daily report & the shiitload of pictures no matter how long it takes becasue a RTWDoug report is worth the wait.

Congratulations on the finish and making it home in the style only you acheive.

And Don't forget the greatest rock & roll band, The Rolling Stones recorded Sticky Fingers there, while they still had the great Mick Taylor.
