The kernel of the idea of the trip started about 6 months ago. I floated the concept and fine-tuned it in a thread titled: "Dedicated trip bikes: Fly-ride-store-repeat?"
I am totally green with envy! As a geometry/architecture major, I understand the Mobius metaphor completely, and believe you may have touched on the ultimate explanation of why/how we ride. Secondly, my wife and I have been planning the same sort of ride/store/fly,repeat trip for our retirement. The only thing we're going to do differently, is, since I ride a Harley, leave the bike at an HD dealer for service, and then come back and pick it up , days, weeks, months later when it's time to resume the strip. I figure the entire trip, including time at home, will take almost a year!

Congratulations on a great theorum, a great plan, and a great ride report, so far!
