3,139 total miles later, and 628 of those today (many in the rain), I'm back in Alexandria. And those miles passed through 9 states: Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina. I hit just about every city on the itinerary too, and over the trip 561 photographs were taken. Every one is a memory of an adventure I'll never forget.
Today, I had a chance for a quick stop in Fayetteville, NC, to see two of my grandsons, Matt and Brian!
I'll get some photos up and compose my thoughts on some of the (to me) more entertaining moments, and trust me, there were countless events that made the trip all the more special.
But before I hit the bed, I'd be remiss without mentioning that my motorcycle is the best damn bike ever built. It ran perfectly through heat, serious rain, deep puddles, lengthy stop and go traffic...mostly stop (Nashville!)...and anything else you might throw at it. The seat was great, I'm still walking, and was far more comfortable than I ever expected. Find a 2008 Softail Custom 105th Anniversary Edition online and buy it. Get the progressive shocks installed and you're set. And yeah, a couple new tires. If nothing else, with new tires your friends will leave you alone. LOL
