Hey don't sweat the poor grade you gave yourself in finishing the ride report. I happened onto your report tonight and was able to read it from start to finish. I think you and your buddy need to consider doing another trip, this time riding two-up. Maybe that's your next horizon.

Thanks, Milk. Great report. My biggest trip so far on my 101.4cc Symba was From Portland to Bar Harbor and back. About 200 miles each way. Low cc touring, the best!

Hey! Hows it going??

Yeah, it took a while to finally finish this report. My son was a mere zygote when I did this trip...and is now 5 months old.

Hoping to do a trip north maybe next summer. Gonna try and take my (GASP!!!!......wait for it......) Royal Enfield to Anchorage. Might take til summer 2014 to arrange it though. Life keeps happening.

Hope you are well. Did I read you are spending this winter in New Mexico??

Anyways.....be safe! Thanks for your hospitality to me and Dean when we were out. So much.

Thanks for the Ride Report.
Will we see you again any time soon?

Q~

Q-

Haha! yeah man......not too hard at all. Only a year later, and done. :) So much for real time blogging.

Might see you again soon. Still in potato country?

Like I said to MAG above....working on the next epic adventure. Doesn't appear it will be on scooters this time. However, Dean and I are also discussing trying to get to Key West on the scooters in the interim. Theres a distinct possibility that the Anchorage trip will be solo. Not sure right now.

Anyways, hope you are well and staying warm this winter.

Take care man. Thanks to both of you for having us.

A la Dumb and Dumber?? Never heard that joke when planning this trip.

Thanks for reading. Very much.

Thanks! Feel pretty good about it....not a bad first effort at a ride report. Hopefully more to follow.

Enjoyed the trip

Hey great RR. Really enjoyed it and could empathize with the challenges of getting up hills only to have to turnaround. I ride scooters a lot and live in the hills. I've got a few Honda 50s and my '87 Elite 150 (my Goldwing). I totally know what watching your rearview mirror is all about.

I took my Aprilia 1000 on a trip once and did Lake Mary Road and Payson, Prescott etc. Would LOVE to do Canada even though the bigger bike doesn't have the same risks.

Thanks for taking the time to stop and photograph, and for wrapping it all up with posts.
