Was on the road next day.Went East Winnipeg-towards Thunder Bay-turned south and entered US at Duluth-drove north over the lakes -Detroit-went into the Apalasians-did the entire Blue Ridge Moutains-Smookey Valley-Headed South East hit Eastcoast at Savannah-followed the coast south to Florida-following the coast all the way to Key West- went back up the Westcoast of Florida( new reartire in Naples) going north throug Alabama(motorbikemuseum in Birmingham)heading Chicago-Oskosh WIsconsin -stayed there 18days for the Airshow(im a pilot to and i did 120some hours of voluteerwork) When the Airventure was over i was back on the bike to Chicago-hit Route 66-and did it all the way to Los Angeles-EPIC-AWSOME. Then i went up to San Fransico-my wife and girls flew in, and i parked the bike for 3 weeks and we went touring in a RV.
