2000 miles and one sore hinder
Did my first "long" weekend. Did little over 2000 miles from Friday to Sunday. Had to go from Wisconsin to Virginia to see my daughter go to prom. She took the plane, I got to take the bike.
The trip out was not too eventful, it was a rainy 5 hours, then once I hit the mountains, the reason I took the bike, it was dense fog, rain and night. This made for a little slow down. On the way back I got a hotel right at the beginning of the mountains so I start out Sunday trip back with morning air and twisties ahead. It took a long time to get out of the mountains, I kept finding more roads to go on till I looked at the GPS and it said I was going to get home at 01:00 in the morning. This would not make for a good night sleep having to get up at 5:30, so fun time over and time to hit the straight and narrow. The rest of the trip was very windy and hot. Someone ordered 85F and sunny. I had cold weather gear and ready for rain, not scorching heat in the north. Heading into the Twister party in midwest. The light show in the sky was very impressive, followed by the high winds blowing the bike all over the road.
All and all it was a good ride. I need to make some changes to the seat, it is still stock. Now my hind end is not happy.
After all the riding, I saw my daughter for 5 minutes, just in time to get a picture and they were off to diner.
What excuse have you used to spend some time on the road?
