2000 miles in 3 days
« on: August 27, 2015, 01:30:29 PM »
Plan on riding up to DC this weekend, gonna leave Saturday Morning about 0200 and ride all the way to Stafford VA, which is 983 miles from home, then on Saturday go up check out TUN TAVERN and the USMC museum for breakfast and on up to the Lincoln Memorial in the afternoon. After all that will head back south to Atlanta or there about to spend the night then ride on home on Monday morning. Total mileage will be over 2000 miles and I might even decide to just go all the way home on Sunday........but the abundance of Deer on the roads in MS at night have me thinking twice..

I have done 200 miles at one hit on it and the seat seemed to be ok, I did plenty of 1000 mile days when I had my Goldwing so long trips are not new, but I am sure I will be a little sore. I skipped the gym this week for that reason, did not want to try this already sore, so gotta make up for it next week. And not to worry will post up some pics and a ride report when I get back.
