    This trip is quite tame by most others posted here, but here goes. Not even sure if I'm looking for travelers to ride with, but thought I'd throw it out there anyway, see if something remarkable springs forth.

    I'm leaving Pittsfield, Massachusetts (01201) on September 10th, I'll be traveling almost entirely on US Rt.20 with a final destination of Salem Oregon. I plan to take 12 days + or - and want to ride approximately 300 miles per day. My goal is to camp out as much as possible and see the "less traveled" side of America with some tourist attractions thrown in. I'll be leaving my bike in Oregon and flying back to Massachusetts.

    I don't smoke, do drugs or cheat on my wife, but love good food and wine and a great story. I'm 56 years old, married with a baby coming in February (three weeks, maybe?). I drive a 2008 DR650 and though I've hitch-hiked across the US a few times in the 70's, I've never ridden a bike this far or for this long. I certainly don't have any reservations about going alone, but my wife thinks I should find a "buddy" to increase the safety factor. Well that's it....
