Thanks to all for the encouragement. I decided on the project about a year ago and spent the winter planning my routes. Thanks to a warm and mild Spring I was able to get out there early and knock off a bunch of the distant spots. Then I started to get some of the closer ones. July and August was so hot I just didn't go anywhere but picked up the pace again in September and continued until it got too cold to take longish trips. By then I pretty much had all the location photos and I combined them with some dual sport pics from 2010 mostly when I did the CDR with some friends. Then around mid December I started putting it all together with the video software and just finished it last week. It was a lot of work but I retired last March and had been wanting to do something similar for several years. I'm lucky to have had this opportunity and I'm glad it all turned out this well. Thanks again for all the positive comments.
Jeff

Awesome! That must have taken a bit to nail together. Getting all the pics certainly would have been the fun part!

I take it you like your bandit for distance riding? I am thinking about getting a 07-09 bandit 1250

I've had quite a few bikes over the years Paul and each one is a compromise. The 07 Bandit makes a pretty decent sport tour machine but doesn't really excel at anything in particular. For me though it seems to be a good fit and I'll probably keep it another year or 2. I'll probably move to something else when it gets close to 100k miles. If I had to do it over again I would buy it in a heartbeat!
