Thanks to all who are following along and enjoying my ramblings.
To answer a few questions:
At this point, and not to spoil things, but at no point during the trip or while i've owned this bike have I had any mechanical problems. I oiled the chain every few gas stops and changed the tires and oil when I got to Northern California. That's it.
As far as interstates are concerned, yes, unfortunately I spent most of my time on them and not secondary roads. It was my first trip and most days I was more concerned about getting where I was going as quick as possible. Looking back, I wish I would have taken my time and some alternative routes, but I still enjoyed it very much and feel like I saw a tremendous amount of things along the way.
Next few stops include:
- Denver, CO
- Jackson, WY & Yellowstone
- Missoula, MT
- Kennewick, WA
- Salem, OR
- Willits, CA
- San Francisco, CA
