Looking forward to following across the US.
I'm from Kaunas, I moved in 2003 and after getting the green card, now I was able to apply for the citizenship.

As for the safety course, my friend took it and that's how he has his license.
I think I'll take it after riding more. I gotta leave ASAP though. Off to work and then it's Monday!!

Also this was my safety road coarse:



P.S. Just kidding, I do appreciate safety concerns and suggestions. It's just now or never kind of a trip.

Yay passed the motorcycle road test! Drove back through bear mountain on my 250. The radiator fan assembly came in today.

The big bike should be ready this evening. We're on to leave tomorrow morning. One day late with the departure time. Still not too bad considering all that happened.

Almost done packing... When saying goodbye to my girlfriend she finally got enough courage to ride the 250 around. Next season I think she'll get one too.

So worked the late into the night to get things at work as ready as possible for the trip... Got home to get ready. [Over]Packed the bike and drove to work to finish few more things. Should be meeting in Manhattan at 6am at the friends place. Copying the memory cards now... shit passed out.

With an hour of sleep I'm now late. I have messages asking if I'm close. I jump on the bike and roll out. The sky is getting light. NYC MORNING TRAFFIC!!! NOOOO!!!

I'm rolling with this huge weight getting into Manhattan from Long Island. I'm late but I finally get to Harlem.

I help my friend carry few things... an old asian lady who's sweeping up the sidewalk gives him a big hug and wishes good luck. That's his ex-land lady. We hop on and roll out.

Stopped for lunch somewhere in West Pennsylvania and found an old barn full of rusting cars... So much fun :)

So far the morning has been sooo cold. But finally the temps are up.

Cool. I'm heading out from NYC and heading west next Friday. Going west the north way and heading back through the south, at least that's the plan.

Not sure what your track looks like, but PM me should you want some company at some point.
