    Thank you for being a wonderful guest in our home (both literally and figuratively) and reminding us of some of the great sights we have here.

    I look forward to seeing you again one of these days, and will be watching for your next adventure.

    And thanks for the commentary on the Bonneville! Very Nice Report all the way around.
    You visited a lot of the best places in the U.S. I could suggest my hometown of Huntsville, AL (birthplace of America's moon rocket program) and maybe the Florida Keys and Daytona Speedway. But after that, you just need to go back to whatever place your heart says you didn't get enough of. So very glad you visited the U.S. and made it home safe and sound.

    I really love your comments about "Mr Bonneville". So many people have their ideas about what one cannot do on a Motorcycle. In the end, it is possible to do many things on almost any bike! You have certainly proven that a Triumph Bonneville is a worthy machine for distance riding. I bet Steve McQueen was smiling down upon you from Triumph Motorcycle Heaven along your entire ride.

    Cheers, Weronica- and all the best! :norton

    Great trip, Weronica! I still want to plan an all-girls adventure, maybe Mongolia to Europe or around India. Keep it in mind, and any other girls reading this report :)

    I'm about to cross into the US from Latin America- almost home, minus having to ride all the way up to Seattle. Would have been fun to meet, but looks like you had some great experiences with other ADV riders!

    Take care,
    Elisa

    Good for you and congratulations on your ride. Good luck on your presentation. I can't make it. Going to LOCKN Festival in southern VA.

    Weronika,

    First, you're AWESOME!!! Keep it up.

    I'm coming to this RR kinda late, but I had to comment on this post. I really couldn't agree with you more, the Bonnie has so much soul; she's just a beautiful bike in every way. I have a couple of bikes, a Kawi ZZR-1200 is my street ride, and an old 1994 Kawi KLX 650 as my "adventure" bike.

    My ZZR is just awesome in every way. 175 HP and nearly 100ft-lbs of torque, she has power dripping from every pore. She handles well and she's as reliable as a Singer Sewing Machine...But she has no soul.

    So I find myself lustfully eyeballing Bonnies; I'm like stalker. I'll drive extra exits just to catch up with and get a good eyeball on a nice Bonnie. I can't decide if I like the T-100 or the Scrambler best, but I get all weak in the knees when I see either.

    I think you chose exceptionally well for your trip. 67 HP is right in the "just right" zone for one up touring, or two up short trips. I think if I had a Bonnie, I would ride the wheels off that thing. Congratulations on your choice of bike, and thanks for your Ride Report; it's excellent.
