Interesting photos! I am from Texas, familiar with Plano and can see why you have just up and did what you did. Tell ya, you've got some freedom that most of us don't have right now.

I am looking forward to seeing more pics and posts.

Thanks Tex

Great RR. Thanks for the wonderful pics. I'm curious about your seat pad. I keep thinking I need to change out my saddle, but noticed you had another solution. Was wondering what you thought of it and how long you were able to ride at a stretch.

Best regards,

You are a big person, you ride a big motorcycle, and even the photographs you take are big.

Where did you say you were from?

Incredible photography, thank you for sharing them and your ride report with us.

Safe travels,

The clarity and focus of those pictures blow me over. I do not understand how you can get on the inside of that tiny tent though.

Nice! Thanks for sharing, great photography also. I bet these pics are just a fraction of some of the ones you have taken! Keep it shiny side up.

Rhode Island....

Thanks for the kind words everybody, getting to do two things I really love has been a dream these last few weeks. I'm hanging out in Jackson one more day, hoping most tourists clear out of Yellowstone by tomorrow. Should be some great stuff there.

Best regards,
It's the Airhawk, highly recommended. It helps a ton on those long stretches, maybe not as good as a custom seat (which may be my next stop) but it sure is better than nothing.

Thank you for your amazing ride report. Selling your house and quitting your job was probably the best thing you did, but I think you already know that ;-)
