Two Weeks To Go!
This weekend I went to the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Camp in Cruso, NC for the weekend. From now on you will just hear me refer to this campground as Cruso. On Saturday I rode to Tennessee just to ride. Notice my new Kermit chair in the photo. I think this is going to be a lifesaver on the trip. I guarantee that this chair is more comfortable than those picnic table benches after a long day in the saddle (of which there will be many on this trip). I took the R80RT to save the tires for the BIG trip. I will have a new front tire mounted on the GS this week. Next weekend I also plan to ride to Cruso and ride the GS just enough to get the front tire scuffed in. I will also use it as a shakedown tour to make one final check of all my equipment.
My wife, Tine, will be returning from Germany just days before I start my northern adventure. That is also adding a little excitement to this adventure. Stay tuned!
