I have to agree with the C O L D in the mornings at the higher elevations in Colorado having just got back from there myself. But, the heat at the lower elevations ( Texas and Louisiana come to mind ) is brutal in the afternoons.

Loved the notation of the 440,000 mile R11GS. Makes my 50,000 miles apiece on my 2 R11**Gs very pale in comparison.

Super fine ride report and pictures. Thanks for the time and work to share your ride with us.

Yep, cold as hell - and humid when it rains . Lovely scenery tho!

Hank is a decent guy himself too, we spent a good few days together with him in Santiago ( ). He's currently over 450 000 miles (720 000 km) with his R1100GS - all engine still stock! He rides it offroad too, he did even Southern-Bolivia (no roads - just trails!) with the same bike. Just plain stunning reliability per this mileage IMO.

Just discovered your trip report and will be following your travels! You're welcome to look me up when you get to the USA... Especially if you'll be traveling thru Ohio.

BTW, my grandmother used to live just down the road a little ways from you... She was born in Lithuania!

Safe travels,

I must apologise in advance. In some ways I'm still oldschool - I didn't buy any digital SLR with me like 99.9% motorcycle travellers nowadays do who seek good photos. So I took my beloved film camera instead since I do love to be different, and personally I love the aspect that the film gives to all the digital boredom that is facing you everywhere you step. This is why you don't see much "bike here - bike there" type of motorcycle travelling shots here - those I keep for our point and shoot cheap digital camera that other threads pictures are made of. Hopefully you'll understand.
