As cliched as it sounds, this trip really was a life changing experience for me. It has helped me view my life in a much broader perspective than I had before.
Unfortunately, the FJR is now gone. I wrecked it on a ride on Thanksgiving day due to some jackass in a pickup who cut me off. Hopefully next spring, I'll replace it with a 2013 model and break it in with another trip across the US.
