28 states and the District of Columbia.
2 tires and 2 oil changes.
Longest day - Little Falls, NY to Bowling Green, KY - 857 miles, 13 1/2 hours.
Shortest day - 2nd Day in Seattle, no miles. Only day off the bike in a month.
What did I learn?
That I have more questions than answers.
That I like mountains, water, trees, and motorcycles. Guess I actually knew that ahead of time but the trip sure confirmed it.
That I don't like deserts, cities, construction, and traffic, the last three of which have formed an unholy alliance aimed at driving me insane.
That certain people, places, and cultural icons have a much stronger effect on me that I would have ever imagined.
