This sounds so familiar. My then 17 y/o son did the MSF training, got him a great bike to start out with, a KLR250. Prep miles all with me, ATGATT minded as well. He graduated from high school last year, shortly after we traded up to a KLR650.
Not long after that we headed out on a 6 day ride through eastern WA, OR, ID, MT, and back. It is a great feeling having him in the rear view mirror, or out in front.
It is also scary as hell.
Late August we're heading up for a week on Vancouver Island. Next year we're doing the Deadhorse trip. These are some great times.
Not to stomp on your report, you understand. Keep it coming, looking forward to it.
