Welcome jd, Great trip around the country to be had. My little lady & I did a cross country last year. 9000+ miles but we only had a month to do it. Both of us still put the nose to the grindstone. Again welcome to the GWOF, have fun & ride safe.
By the way make sure you get to do at least some parts of Rt.66 if not all of it. We did & had a blast.
Welcome from Down Under, and congratulations on your retirement. I have heard it said that for some poeple that have retired, they don't know how they had time to go to work. Hopfully this is how you find it. Eric
Welcome JakeDog or should I say "lucky dog" retiring and taking off on your wing. Anyway good luck on your trip and ride safe, oh and think about us poor working stiffs as you are tooling down the high way.
