@cabanza congrats on the new toy.
Be safe on the road.
Some nasty looking weather along your route - be safe, enjoy that new ride!
Thanks guys! We’re just chilling in historic Mobile today. The rain isn’t too bad yet but I know it will pick up later. Rain or shine, we’re leaving tomorrow. We’ll try and leave late morning for a late lunch in New Orleans. It’s been forever since I had one of those beignets from Cafe du Monde.
Congratulations on your new toy, I’ve done 7.5k miles on mine and love riding it. In case you have missed it on the main thread do carry a spare battery for the fob with you, mine gave up the ghost after just over a year and left me stranded.
I am outa my mind jealous! But, I’m quite happy for you. Cheers. Wanting one very badly. Blasting #honda_powersports_us all the time about them selling it here in the states. Safe travels - rubber side down!
Another long day today. We did 350 miles, Mobile, AL to Lake Charles, LA. We had some weather challenges. We got rained on close to New Orleans. Thank god for the beignets from Cafe du Monde! Delicious! We stopped for lunch in Baton Rouge. At that point we thought we were in the clear in terms of rain but we got hit hard 20 miles west of Lafayette. A huge thunderstorm forced us to seek cover. We got lucky and pulled over at an overpass where we stayed under it. It was quite a show! Lightning, wind, and buckets of rain. Anyway, we’re fine and we finished strong.
At this point, we have 145 miles to get home. We’re planning on leaving early so we can avoid the heat. Houston’s forecast calls for mid to upper 90s tomorrow.
I will try and get a state inspection so I can go to the tax collector’s office on Monday. This will be the big day. We’ll see how it goes. I might be tired and wanna rest tomorrow afternoon. This means I’d have to wait until Tuesday for my state inspection.
All I can say is best of luck with it. It would definitely be impossible to register in AZ.
I had a van from Japan, a toyota Hi ace. I had it in AZ forever. I did not have an eyelash batted registering it or passing emissions.
It has a Florida title so I don't know why you think it would be a problem to register in Arizona, you know that full faith and credit clause in the constitution. It isn't like he is trying to register a vehicle with an otter of country title.
We are back in town.
I had the bike inspected this morning. I will go to the Tax Office on Monday. Like Cheryl said, I have a Florida title. And a Florida license plate.
Here are some pics from my trip. I hope I won't overwhelm you guys with me. But you know, it's just like when you get a kid. Ya gotta show the pictures!
The owners were waiting for us at the airport. I had a chance to see the bike as soon as I came out the doors. It was amazing!
I can't say enough about Christine (the previous owner). She was so nice! Everything went well.
We hit the ground running as soon as we could.
The X ADV is such a cool bike! Storage space is limited though. When they say it fits a full face helmet, that is it!
We rode the coast in Florida and had a blast doing it.
I just couldn't get enough of my new bike
Florida has very nice riding roads. Texas? Not so much... Floridians drive fast!
Mobile, AL was very nice! Weather wasn't too great but we still managed. I'd recommend it if you ever go that way.
The rain hit us pretty hard as we entered New Orleans. Nothing a beignet can't fix though. It had been more than 20 years since I had been to New Orleans. I hate to say that years of Hurricane haven't been kind to the city.
Another city, another meal. This time, we had Cajun food in Baton Rouge (boo! LSU). Blackened catfish and dirty rice. Yum.
