From St. Louis to Louisville

Made a quick trip of a weekend from St. Louis to Louisville and back (all on pavement). Not long by any means, but on my 1980 KZ550 is was the longest trip I have yet conducted. It was a good time that was motivated by all you big dual sport riders.

I rode a bit farther than the cities centers, so the trip all together was about 6.5 hours of riding. I guess thats a bit like putting my toe in the great pool of adv riding. Here's to a future of more and longer distance

...aaaand sorry to all. Just realized this should have gone in the "day trippin" section. Since it was only two days of travel. I'll read the rules next time

And thanks Shep. I'll hit you up next time!

Yup

Yea Chucky, it was pretty comfortable. I was able to move around on it quite a bit, so I wasn't stuck in one position.
I do however have a bit of a tweaked back, so I can never tell if it's just me of the bike/chair/whatever i'm sitting in..
