What else to say but, "Congratulations Doug!"

So, le's see here.... you must be at about the halfway point in the ride, eh?

Seriously, thanks for reporting on the road and have a great return leg. Hope to see you maybe in the Fall somewhere.

The CNN Report is priceless, BTW.

Love your attention to details.

Doug, that's a coffee and a keyboard you owe me

Seriously awesome achievement - been following your progress here and am honoured that you have taken the time and effort to take us on your travels.

I guess this is the point where you turn around and start heading home ?

Ride safe !

Thumb Congrats!

Never doubted the outcome for a moment...but still great to see that pic at the end of the line. You do look wore slick.

Hope to buy you a Dr. Pepper in October.

Best........John

Bigtime Congrats from Lower Alabama!


What an awesome trip and exceptional RR!!
And I was just wondering where you were yesterday as I ambled my 22 year-old GS around the forest roads around Cheaha and Choccolocco. My Goat is allergic to Starbucks, by the way...

“I’m wore out like a 2 dollar whore on nickel night!”





GS riders worldwide would like to point out that was not a "real" harley. Perhaps a harley-hybrid.
