Coast to Coast ride (sort of)

Leaving Phoenix on the 3rd of Sept. Going to Houston to see my dad and older brother. Probably will ride over to North Carolina to see some friends there. If I can find the Appalachians I will ride them north to West Orange NJ to spend the night or so with the bro.in law and his wife. After that ride up to Cape Cod to meet up with the wife and long time traveling companion at a beach house in Truro. From there will most likely ride over to Nebraska to see a buddie over there and then back to Phoenix. Should only be gone about 3 weeks.

The big question is What kind of music is best for this ride??

Why am I here and what day is it??

Re: Coast to Coast ride (sort of)

What ever moves your soul. I have about 8 gigs on my IPod with about 1/2 of it local artist. I also have Sirius & bounce around from Jazz to country to old rock & new pop. It all depends on my mode & where I am riding. Flying down the highway it is mostly Old rock. In the twisties I like jazz.

Gee I dunno, that's an awful lot of states to cover. Are you sure it's possible to ride so far in just three weeks?

Bring whatever music makes you happy and that you want to sing along too. And have a good ride.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Meese, Last time I did a long ride I covered 18 states and two country's in 14 days. That was on my GS with a stock seat. This time I am on a real long distance bike.

Why am I here and what day is it??
