Well, bitches, in case anyone is wondering, you can do an 800+ mile day on a Super Enduro. I may have been able to do 1000, except that I got caught in 2 massive thunderstorms in Colorado, and about 4 traffic jams.

I rode Fromm Fort to Fort...Worth to Collins.

Trackhead, where are you camped? I'll be hitting Wyoming today.

Is this just a practice run to see if you can find Steamboat in September? 800 miles sounds like all pavement.

Which one of you FFs gave me the ADV Salute today around 3pm, just off the Brigham City exit?

I was on a white GSA (in business clothes) heading towards the I-15.

Whoever gave me the finger, I appreciate it. I would've reciprocated if I'd had the time (just day dreaming a little, that's all). This mystery rider was ATGATT on a V-Strom--I think.

I am getting the bike up as close to Canadia as possible. Sitting in a restaurant in Worley, ID stealing Wi-Fi. I am going to ride the continental divide trail, and an inmate was nice enough to let me store the bike at his place of business, lend me some tools for changing tires and oil, hooked me up with a sweet camp site next to Coeur d'alaine lake, and I even got a shower today. Keys are all accounted for.

Total mileage was 2372 since Friday morning, all slab, about 1000 miles of interstate as I am on a schedule. I'll fly back to Texas on Thursday, work for 12 days, then fly back up here and start the ride.

I could use the help of Utards who are willing to receive my SPOTS, cuz I'll be traveling solo. If I get in trouble, it would be nice to have some bitches who can rally some troops close to where I need help. If you can help out, please PM me your phone number and the name of your wireless carrier.

If anyone is interested in joining me for a leg of the trip, let me know. I'll be on a tight schedule so no crybabies or noobs...sorry. Riding will be typical Utarded moto-backpacking: ride from dawn to dusk, eat at gas stations, sleeping in the dirt...that kinda thing.

Hey Hick, ya know the POS FJR you rode and thought it was shit. They finished 1,2,3 in the
Iron Butt Rally and 5 of the top ten bikes were FJRs. Hmmmmm.

It's all good. A 1600 Beemer did slip in at 18.

Just say'n.
