    Left Saturday morning Just returned 10/22 and the ride back was hands down hard core! Left Vero Beach,FL stopped @ Daytona for a quick look see at all the bikes. Continued on until North Carolina 600 mile day 10 hours in the saddle. Left around 8:30 am for NYC 550 miles in 12 hours because of traffic and accidents along the way. One close call on 295 outside of Philly when there was a quick slow down and I moved over to the left incase the care behind didn't react in time and sure enough that car stopped even with my back wheel.
    Made it to friends house for much needed rest and then off to RI for a easy 2 1/2 trip home. People and local food along the way make this trip worth while and I can't wait to try something a little farther away.
