Howdy Drybones,

Driven like a sane human being, at reasonable speeds, in low or no wind, on level or gently rolling ground, 32-36 mpg. Driven the way I normally do, which will NOT be happening while on this tour, 23-28 mpg.

Spot, will not be with me on this trip. Its hard enough to ask folks to let me in the door let alone my Dog, that and if I have to camp or do the motel thing having him would really complicate matters. I sure am going to miss the little bugger.

Howdy Mr. Cob..... Looking forward to your trip. I'm not sure if I told you out at DVDaze, but you are welcome to stay with Bonnie and I when you come through Colorado if the timing works out.

Howdy FWIW,

I think the lady your talking about was named Carla King. I am not following anyone, I don't know for sure what route I am taking between stops, when I get up in the morning I'll decide which roads to take, when and where to stop, etc.

Budding love affair, I have been told by many that I "have a face made for radio" never have been much of a ladies man so it is not in the cards for any on road romances. If I were to be raped while on tour I had better have a heart attack while in the act or my wife will kill me when I get home.

Howdy Hayduke,

Follow the ride report, if and when I get close to your area send me a PM reminding me of your offer of hospitality. Hosts are very scarce in your area theres a chance I'll stop by if the timings right.

Howdy Pete156,

I have been "told" by some of the Inmates who are hosting me that I will be treated to REAL BBQ while in their area, perhaps I should stock up on the Tums.

Looking forward to seeing you in Florida

Mr. Cob,

I hope to get to meet you and spend some time with you either in St. Pete or at the "scrub" with Jack Daniel and the rowdy group of ADV inmates that gather there.

Ride safe and enjoy. Take lots of pictures, too. I look forward to your RR.

Wow Mr. Cob!

What an adventure! Ever consider keeping a journal and writing a book about this trip? That'd be a good read I'll bet. I'm curious, is there going to be much in the way of Ural dealers along your route? What kind of contingency plans do you have in case of break downs or parts needs? I know it's hard enough to find BMW shops/parts for my Dakar in some of the "non urban" areas. I'd venture a guess Ural shops won't be on every street corner either!

Anyway, have a great trip, post up as much as you can and come back in one piece! I'll assume Stanwood isn't on your route but the beer's on me if and when you do get here (but you'll have to tell some stories)!

Peace and ride on...

Rob

Howdy Sevoman,

Howdy Yeti,

My east coast plans are not set at this time, follow the report when I am in your area if I post that I need a Host please send me a PM at that time to remind me of your kind offer of hospitality. Thanks.
