I prefer my soft Butt. I really didn't intend to ride as far as I did that day. If I was going for Iron Butt honors I could have cut out a few hundred miles of sharp curves and traffic. Adding a few long lonely highways would have made 1000 miles much easier than what I did.

Found this after reading your latest on the KTM!

Awesome ride and photo's! Thanks for taking the time to share with those of us who probably won't ride where you have, despite longing to do so...

Great pictures. Heck, anyone whom travels know pictures only serve to remind us of the endless beauty we saw. And, you have some great reminders. Thanks for all the work of sharing with us. My hat is off to you for riding that bike that far. My old body will have none of that anymore.

Thanks for the recent replies guys! As for riding this many miles, I'm not sure I want to try that again. However; I always seem to end up riding more miles than I should. Too many places to see, not enough time...

Great report!

Just letting you know that your reports are still great even five years later.
