I’ve been creeping towards a motorcycle free life, but a 200 mile ride last week makes me think I’ll keep the strassenfloosie. Maybe just raise the bars and drop the pegs.

You should keep that pretty machine, or give it to me.

I don't know if you can slow down enough to stay with us but I am willing to try it.

THAT was fun... although you had the slight advantage of 200 less pounds in the tight stuff...

Stopping to smell the roses and 250 mile days, it is hard to keep up that pace but we managed it for almost a month.

Ah, this saddens me greatly grasshopper. You might not be ready as it shows you still have much to learn. Instead of a bun burner gold trying thinking of it as an opportunity for 8-10 glorious, joyful, meditative, adventurist days before reaching Seattle. The goal is enjoyment of the trip not the destination.
