    Be warned there is no off road in this report so if you want to take 31 minutes out of your life click on the link, turn on the sound and hopefully enjoy. I know I did doing it.
    It's a little Nashville and Elvis 'heavy' at the beginning so if you are not a fan skip to the 12 minute mark.
    Pictures are good storytellers not me. I'm not in the same league as some of the posters here.
    Total miles were 3,591 and a little more Interstate than I prefer but time became a factor.

    I did poke fun at some Tennessee folks and hopefully no offense will be taken.

    I would but the Flash player thing doesn't work for me. Why not put it on Youtube?

    I think it's too long. I'll have to ask my grandson.

    Great imagery. It's kind of ironic that the great HD rescue of 1982 turned me on to motorcycle adventure in the first place. I think it was the now defunct Cycle magazine which had an article about taking the new FXRT Sport Glide to Alaska. I vowed to take a trip like that someday. Years later, a Motorcyclist article featured a group ride on gravel roads with a variety of new bikes. One was the FXR convertible affectionately known as the pack mule. As the riders switched off and evaluated various bikes, each was reportedly keen to get on the comfortable and stable FXR. Harleys, especially those with the 19 inch front wheel, make pretty good gravel road bikes. In any event, it is all about the journey and the sights along the way as your photo series shows. Thanks for posting.
