Starting Odo: 23243
295 miles

I was talking to Lynn a few months ago and she said "take Pete on a bike trip". Who am I to say "no"? Pete has many weeks free in Summer. I only have two this year and we agreed on Juy as the "right" time to hop on motorcycles and go touring. Well, Pete got a head start and went out West (think Rocky Mountains, etc) for a few weeks. We loosely agreed to meet once I finally head out.

I packed my bags, then repacked them so they would fit in the hard bags on my bike :)  Niki has been wonderful in helping me get ready.

A last minute trip to the dealer for service was not the best plan, but needed. You don't want to go out on the road if the bike's not ready.

I finally pulled out of my driveway at 2:30PM. Three hours of head poundng, full face wind at 85mph later, I was filling the tank in Lake City FL. I took FL90 due West and regreted it in about 20 miles as rain clouds descended. Turns out that an entire string of storms was lined up on FL90, so I headed North to find rolling hills and green earth.


Spent the night in Mountrie (rhymes with Poultry.. and smells like it).
