    I just re-read the first few pages . I'm not sure I have a word for the feeling: humbling, nostalgic and happy to know it really came to fruition.

    I'll have to find a new RR to check everyday

    Well done Brett. Waiting anxiously for the "rest of the story" to tie up the loose ends and finish this off completely. :lurk

    Enjoyed this RR thanks for taking us a long. Including any wrap up trip after action report with below would be interesting:
    - why the trip (from your new perspective)
    - best and worst part
    - how you have changed since (if so)
    - fav location
    - moto choice reflection

    I got into ridings to get me thru a time of my journey that I am well past. Now I ride to have some adventure and because I find the peace of experiencing a relationship with the Creator by riding in His creation. Curious what riding means to you now after this trip.

    Thanks again for taking us with you.

    My entire being is covered with goose flesh...absolutely stunning.

    Of this I am certain. A friend for life has been made and we WILL ride together in the future.

    Much love and even more admiration.

    Honda needs to buy Annie and put her in a museum for all to see. What an awesome bike. A real testament to Honda reliability.

    I can’t wait to hear what is next for Mr. Anderson.

    Don't put Annie in a cage, she deserves to continue doing what she does best!

    We should all be so fortunate to have the memories from such an adventure as Brett.

    In my not so humble opinion, Annie belongs where she will be understood, revered, and appreciated. Having just spent Friday walking through the hallowed halls of the motorcycle museum at Barber Motorsports in Birmingham, AL, I have no doubt where Annie belongs.

    No doubt, indeed.....

    Or maybe Annie in the Country Music Hall of Fame, maybe they have some sort of interpretive exhibits
