Thank you!!!!

A little more info on the ride. I added the total time.

At the end of each day I recorded the miles and total time for that day.
Total time was from starting the bike in the morning to ending the day at a motel.

Day 1 was a good day. No rain.
Day 2 a late start. I readjusted my start time after that day.
Day 3 getting better.
Day 9 was a challenge. A lot of 2 lane roads, small towns and rain. Great scenery!
Day 10 a short ride to the finish. :)

The numbers - GPS Miles and time.

Day 1 - 1136 miles - 22 hours 44 minutes
Day 2 - 796 miles - 15 hours 32 minutes
Day 3 - 896 miles - 16 hours 41 minutes
Day 4 - 1044 miles - 17 hours 33 minutes
Day 5 - 938 miles - 16 hours 40 minutes
Day 6 - 1002 miles - 17 hours 31 minutes
Day 7 - 1007 miles - 17 hours 28 minutes
Day 8 - 1029 miles - 17 hours 58 minutes
Day 9 - 777 miles - 17 hours 15 minutes
Day 10 - 165 miles - 3 hours 37 minutes

Total time - 9 days, 17 hours and 16 minutes.

I started in SD so that I could quickly hit SD and ND and head east.

If I had started in Wisconsin I would have had to ride up to South and North Dakota from Iowa "on the clock".
Doing this added 550 miles to my trip but they were off the clock.

I used a Spot Tracker on this trip.
My wife, friends and co-workers were able to follow my ride.
When I stopped for gas they even knew what kind of gas station it was.

I used it everyday. Worked perfect, no gaps. I replaced the batteries on day 6.

The map shows where I stopped each day.I did forget to use the OK button at the end of day 5 in Kansas.
