    Bikes ready I'm ready the money is right it is time to go. Moved my departure date up a few days. Leaving Northeast Ohio the morning of 06/02/2019. Maybe get to dip my toes in the Arctic Ocean with a little bit of luck. I will do my best to keep this RR updated and current. So hopefully I will see some of you Adv.Riders on the road. Here is my MC. 8ZLeWXsVSZS3xCt+tajvfw.jpg

    Had a late start this morning. Did not feel like starting in the rain.I have ridden as far as Wisconsin just outside the Dells for the evening. Not camping until I get to cooler climates. They say the Tics are really bad this year. I don't like mosquitoes very much I truly hate Tics. The only photo that I took today was one of my breakfast. Basically just making time until the fun begins. Once the scenery gets better I will post some photos. Might do some food shots and a bike shot or two before then. The AT is working fine no issues. The Mitas E-07 front and the Mitas E-07 + rear seem to be very nice tires so far. No noise issues no stopping issues no cornering issues to date. Here is a photo of my distance traveled today 620.5 miles is my distance ridden today. 643.2 is the total milage on the Mitas set of tires. I will let everyone on here know exactly how many miles these tires last. View attachment 1712587
