    I gotta say it: When you didn't show up on the thread for a couple weeks I throught for sure you pussed out. But the reality is you were busy putting this thing together. Way to go man. A sincere, hearty congrats. That photo of you and the keys says it all. What a Dork!

    When I was an 8 year old cub scout I would've loved to have something like that. I would've ruled. Think of it as an early letherman tool, keep it as a good luck charm and to remind youself to be prepared, like keeping your rain gear where you can get to it. :lol3

    Not Dork but, first aid kit. That is what he told the owners son (my boss) when he asked "is that where you hide the weed". That conversation happened just like he posted, funny stuff. :D

    Oh, I see. This thread got moved downstairs. No wonder I missed it. And here all this time I thought Dork was a dork (lowercase, see?) who blew this trip off. I'm kicking in a $40 and an invite to the Mighty D should he make it to the land of Mickey Mouse to make up for my doubting ways. Stop by, mang, and I'll show you the side of town not in the tourist books! 'Till then, rawk on!

    Congrats MR Dork on getting the hardest part of the ride over... the first turn on the key to the on position... hitting the start button and moving forward...


    Ride safe... see you when you get to Colorado. The hot tub will be up for about another 2-3 weeks and the weather here is usally very good on the west half of the state until end of Sept... then you never know...




    BTW



    Paging Rider, Flug... someone with house power... Maybe Dork should change his name to MR DORK now since the ride as begun...

    Wow, by now you must be realizing you can travel on a lot less than you have packed. Ship most of that stuff home to mom, and travel lighter...You will enjoy the ride part a whole lo more. Only need about one pair of jeans, cuppla t-shirts. When you need more, stop at WAlly's place and pick up another pair.

    Not trying to be critical, but skeers me to see stuff packed so high on back of a bike.

    Dork,


    PM me if you get to Raleigh, you can do your laundry, eat and get your bike tweaked by a fellow Strommer.

    Then I will show you how to pack. :deal

    What's with the radar detector? The trip will be a lot more fun at 50mph, and where do you have to be anyway? :evil

    Poor college student here. If you make it around Bloomington, IN feel free to stop in for a night or two. I have a garage and tools if you need to tweak anything. Oh, and probably there will be some homebrew on tap soon as well.
