    Thanks. I travel a lot for work...usually between 80 and 100 nights annually at my employer's expense. So, I rack up a lot of Holiday Inn points. I've got their highest membership level. Wes is the same way with his job, but he goes through Choice hotels.

    This was awesome! Loved the drone footage. Reading through this makes me want to do the CDR again...

    Just stumbled across your ride report last night. Watched the teaser and the wife and I sat down this morning with a pot of coffee, and was blown away with your footage, cinematography, and music!!
    Well done!!
    I plan a 7 to 10 day trip every year into northern Canada for friends and family. I make videos.... But, cell phones and beat up gopros don't come close to that drone footage!! Again... Well done!!

    Enterprise was fantastic to work with. I told them the story of what happened and they had zero issues renting a van. It was considerably cheaper than U-haul or renting a truck even. The van was big enough to hang my hammock inside so I didn't need to get a room when I needed a rest. It worked well.

    Hmmmmmmm...... you must be referring to my extra large personality!!!!! Bahahahahahaha but yes I would agree the power and weight was a for sure combination for rubber wrecking. Plus it's so easy to wheelie that bike... and a little addictive.

    Believe me I would rather my stuff not have came apart as well. Honestly I had assumed they would install them quickly and we would just get on the road. That was not the case....
