P.S. I'm from the east coast and can relate to some of that rain he experienced

Thank you for the honorable mention, Gus! Glad you enjoyed the read and my report isn't short by choice, I actually do not enjoy writing all that much. Only when talking about something I really enjoy or have a passion for... then the words can flow for awhile so long as I have pictures to fill in the paragraph gaps.

Glad you understood about the rain, it's hard to escape it on the East coast since the storms pretty much come in across a few states and run their course until the front passes. And fall rains are COLD!

I will write the next ride report a little different as I didn't take a lot of notes and pretty much wrote it all up after I got back but when everything was fresh on my mind. Next trip I'll post a report up here, this forum is way easier to work with as far as photo posting... and the people here are pretty cool too! I woke up to another 3" of snow this morning, ridiculous and I'm counting the days until I can be here again:

'06 Yamaha FJR 1300 (long distance mile-eater & road carver)
'00 Suzuki SV650 (naked commuter)
