Fantastic ride report and wonderful pics. I know what you mean about the Triumph. My first bigger bike was a 1973 Tiger 750 and rode her all over the place back then. Wish I still had her! What ever your next adventure, do the same and take your time. Its the journey, not the destination!!! Enjoy!

so what's happening with the Bonnie now?
Was it a rental?

Or did you buy it and you'll freight it back to Europe or sell it???

Well Done Veronica! And well said about the virtues of the Bonneville. And for the next trip? There's a lot of places you haven't been in the US yet. Might take a couple more trips.

Thank you for being a wonderful guest in our home (both literally and figuratively) and reminding us of some of the great sights we have here.

I look forward to seeing you again one of these days, and will be watching for your next adventure.

Thank You for taking us along!

And thanks for the commentary on the Bonneville! Very Nice Report all the way around.
You visited a lot of the best places in the U.S. I could suggest my hometown of Huntsville, AL (birthplace of America's moon rocket program) and maybe the Florida Keys and Daytona Speedway. But after that, you just need to go back to whatever place your heart says you didn't get enough of. So very glad you visited the U.S. and made it home safe and sound.

Thanks for the rr

I really love your comments about "Mr Bonneville". So many people have their ideas about what one cannot do on a Motorcycle. In the end, it is possible to do many things on almost any bike! You have certainly proven that a Triumph Bonneville is a worthy machine for distance riding. I bet Steve McQueen was smiling down upon you from Triumph Motorcycle Heaven along your entire ride.

Cheers, Weronica- and all the best!
