And these little piggies went wee wee wee all the way to Ft Lauderdale

2 - '95 R1100 GS
3 - people

Pittsburgh to Ft. Lauderdale - Traveled 610 miles Sunday 21st, 540 miles on Monday 22nd

Left early in the morning sunday, My friend, his wife and I are riding down to ft lauderdale for a training he had.
Going to take the long way home, up through the smokies. probably around 2500 miles round trip

Half way we also had a '86 K100 riding with us. Which ran out of gas, we found some road trash, cut the top of a gatorade bottle, pulled the fuel line off the injector and when the bike was turned on.. fuel came out.. got us by..
i packed tons of tools... but forgot some hose. lol

picked up my gs with 150k on it on june. put 3k on it riding to work.. i was glad the bike made it without any issues... so far. Ive had a bunch of 70's bikes been building a 79kz 650 cafe racer.. probably only put about 1k miles on a bike in my life.. so this is a huge trip for me.

600+ miles and this is the only thing i got.. but.. ripping through appalachia in a "convertible" when the leaves are in full change was pretty epic.
