Carry on JD.
At 18 I had a Honda 350 that I mostly rode around the surrounding counties with no real thought to how far I 'could' go.
Then one day I went with my Dad to store/welding shop and there was a guy there changing ther oil in his FLH 1200. He had the rack piled high with gear including a 3 burner Coleman stove. He was a big fellow , so I guess he liked to have big meals.
We were in Kentucky but, the plates were from the far off land of California. He told me of his travels, he'd ridden to his uncle's place in New York the year before and now was on his way back to California.
I mentioned I owned a bike , a little 350. He said that was enough to go anywhere, so why not go ?

The next year i took my first out of state trip on that 350 and really haven't stopped since.It's still one of the best ways I can think of to spend my time .
So thanks Harley guy from Ca. for planting the seed. It's still growing .
