I'll tell you all about it.
Tom, you have absolutely hit the bullseye!
In 1965, I rode a 305 cc motorcycle 444 miles in one day. Until 2006, that was my longest one-day ride.
I planned to attend my son's wedding in June 2006, so I bought a V-Strom 650. I planned to take eight days for the trip from Toronto to Vancouver. I made it in six; that's 4 nights in a tent and one in a motel so I would be almost clean when I arrived.
It was terrific. I set out at noon on Sunday from Yonge and Steeles. I had no idea whether my old bones would tolerate 400 miles in the saddle, but when I saw the sign saying "Welcome to Illinois", I knew, brother, I knew. I saw the sun set in Richmond BC on Friday.
Look, this typing is a big hassle. I'll just pop up there and tell you all about it.
