Yes, solo for a couple more days, then meeting 2 of my friends who are working their way down the Cali coast.
Ok, Day 2 St Louis to Amarillo TX.
After a late start due to rain, I got the Strom packed and ready to roll by 7:30 AM. There was a bit of congestion getting out of St Louis, but no real drama. Was very pumped as the day was shaping up to be gorgeous.
I rode down 44 towards Tulsa. And the weather and roads could not be more agreeable. Temps were comfortable 70's. Along the way, I noticed a sign for the Vacuum Cleaner Museum. It was not open yet, but I would love to go check that out (just for giggles). Then rode into Springfield, MO. Then drove through Joplin. You could see some of the damage from the Tornado. My hearts go out to those folks. Then into Oklahoma, which has the strangest Toll system in the world. I went down to Tulsa, then across to Oklahoma City. From that point west, the wind was Epic. The ride went along making it finally into Texas and Amarillo. Exhausted - 13 hours of riding. Tomorrow to Albuquerque and then possibly Flagstaff.
