Can't believe I missed this the 1st time around. Epic RR, brings bac some good ol' memories.
Awesome ride, what an amazing trip!
So Ive found this report for the second time...I read it first on your blog a while ago and it was really the first well documented trip of its kind that I had seen. Then I eventually found this forum and was contemplating asking you to post it here until I came across this today. Really inspiring stuff. Glad to see that you and Trevor (kerncountykid) are aware of each other as your respective trips have been a huge inspiration to me - a fellow 70s cb550 owner in his twenties. This has made all of the work on my bike through the winter at once inspired and gut wrenching as I cant wait to get back on the road come spring. I hope we can all cross paths someday, planned or otherwise.
thanks for the story
I'll add to the heaps of appreciation here.
Fucking balls dood!
I hope to make some travels (longer ones) on my 550 in the future as well (mines a cafe'd '75).
And flatout in TX I'd say you were travelling ~110mph (if you were near redline). I always say that 100+ on these bikes is akin to 160 on a modern sport bike - nothing like a 35yr old motor between your legs screaming for it's life at redline in top gear :eek1
550 = nearly unbreakable.
I've overreved mine sooooo many times missing a shift, hitting 12,000rpms, and it KEEPS ON RUNNING.
Keep it up man!!
Just read this mate. Its like 4am in the morning before I finished it. Twice I tried to bugger off and go to bed and decided to stick it out as I wanted to get the end.
Bloody good read. Well done.
Nice post... interesting !
Loved your story.Iknow im way behind the times.First post here.You still got the bike?
Great lookin bike, Really enjoyed the story.
What an awesome ride report!! Thanks for taking the time (in 09) to share it. What does your bike look like now? I am searching for more posts from you. All the best!!
absolutely inspiring! amazing journey! i love the old gas station. wish i ran into while you were in ny, you probably went right by my town on your way up to buffalo.
great trip, cool bike, awesome pics!
Awesome trip! Definitely inspiring. If you don't mind me asking, how much money did you spend on the trip. I only ask because I plan on taking a trip from ny to the west coast this summer and I want to get a good idea of how much I should save. Thanks!
this report deserves to be brought back to life.
My son turned 13 this week. I'm going to make him read it.
I'm bringing this one back from the dead. I Google'd cb550 road trip and found this. Really enjoyed the read! I have a 74' 550.
