    Agreed. He also hurried his way down and (at least on video) didn't interact with anyone - just blew through. I can see that wearing on the psyche. While I don't mind going a couple of days not speaking to anyone, it's pretty helpful on the road to break out of your shell and at least throw a smile to the occasional stranger.

    Enjoyed your extended post, which showed up on my email but not here. Maybe that's the way you intended it, but I wanted to take a second to acknowledge the time you took to vent about your experience riding with a friend who wasn't on the same page. It just doesn't seem like it should be that hard to be a good riding companion, does it? Take a trip with someone, though, and their PITA tendencies, if they have any, emerge quickly. Or, honestly, it could be your own PITA tendencies that don't mesh with their way of doing things. As a general rule, when three of four guys are swearing off ever including the fourth on another trip, it's usually pretty clear where the problem lies.

    Still, he totally lacked the 'joie de vivre' and the plain wonderment and happiness of seeing new places I associate with big multiday motorcycle trips...
