A while back I posted that we might take a trip to Alaska this year. Well we did not take that trip but we are traveling now around part of the country. To date we have put on 4600 miles. Been on the road 3 weeks but we are taking our time, seeing the beautiful country and visiting family and friends. We left SW Florida on
July 5th and went to NM stayed in Taos 2 days then went to Colorado rode thru the mountains to Ft Collins, spent 4 days there. Ohio was our next stop for 4 days. Rode thru the Amish country there. We have been on secondary roads the entire trip, except where they become interstate for short distances. Riding the country roads is beautiful and the scenery and small towns are great. (It is slow going though). We have had good weather for most of the trip. Got rained on a little in Montgomery,AL. Hit heavy rain and hail in Colorado for a short time, HIt very severe heavy rains and wind in Ill and had to get off the road for 2 hrs.
Got rained on and hail agian up at the Finger Lakes in NY. There we went to a winery and 2 different falls. Had 110 degree heat in Wichita Falls, TX and hot weather from FL to NM, then we had perfect weather thru NM and Co. We saw the devastateing tornado damage in Al, the floods in the mid west (Nebraska/Iowa border), rode along the Allaganeny river in Pa, thru the Pocono's in Pa and the mountains in upstate NY. we met lots of great people and other people traveling on motorcycles. Right now we are in NJ now for a few days and then will be on the road again heading south. We hope to stop in Nashville for a while too.

The bike has been flawless and we are pulling our trailer. (turned 96,000 miles) The AVON Cobra tires have been great, handling very well and stable in the rain, the steel bridges in Port Jervis, NY and grooved pavement. Showing no wear @ 4600 miles. This in my second set of Avon's, I put them on just before I left on the trip.

I hope I have'nt bore you all with my post. We are haveing a great ride, enjoying the liesure pace, meeting great folks in the heartland of America and seeing our great country up close.

not boring, just making some of the rest of us intensely jealous that you are out riding and we have to do other things!

Have a great time! :thumbup:
