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
  • Monterey, CA
  • Orange, CA
  • Las Vegas, NV
