    Not sure why it quoted post 1. My phone is acting screwy. I don't think the weather and riding over the thousand and thousand of miles has been to kind to it.

    Made it up.from tampa, saw destin, and ended up in Baton Rouge, LA. I'm visiting family for a couple days, so I'll let you know when I'm on the move again.

    On the way through Destin, I did run into an ADVer from British Columbia. He had a decal on his BMW duel sport (I'm not well versed in these yet) for every iron butt rally and major thing in North America, including Mexico (and I believe a Baja decal). That guy had probably been everywhere in North America

    And my friends say IM a wild man!

    Chad, you should do a ride for a few weeks some time just to travel. Most fun I've ever had

    I would love to JR. That was one reason I got my Strom and now the Uly. But there are a few things that hold me from riding far from the house. I really want to ride to PA to visit family then TX to see my sister and a few friends there.

    You are cruising along, but I keep forgetting that the pictures are at the front.

    So would it be, 'Something yellow rollin down the strip, airborne rider on a one way (round) trip'.

    You're either putting down the miles or hooked up with some of those southern girls............... What about an update?

    Trying to leave the chicky mommas out of the report. My mother follows this thread and would probably rather not hear about it, but we'll see what I can do. I'm going to go visit the most beautiful red head in the world in TX shortly.But I do love me some southern women!

    Update is I'm still in Baton Rouge chilling with family. Burning some time before I ride texas and the Trinity Bomb Site (Opens april 6th) and is only open two days a year. (grand total of 12 hours annually)

    Don't worry ADV the ride is about to get epic and very beautiful out west. I just hope Glacier NP is defrosted enough for the ride by the time I make

    Ah yes, my apologies to mom. They do like to keep tabs on us now, don't they? Mine just left here saying be careful on my ride this weekend in Arizona.
    And I'm 51.

    Thanks for the reports! Keep them coming along please.
