Getting the touring bug.......
I had a buddy over for ribs Saturday and he was telling about his friend's 28 year-old son who just finished a +8,000 mile trip in 40 days on his Triumph Scrambler. He's about to start law school and wanted to explore the country before school started. After reading his daily blog and seeing the pictures, I've been thinking about this non-stop.
I'm thinking of a 10-15 day trip from Atlanta up to Maine, Crossing thru Vermont to western, NY where I have a place in Chautauqua (may rest a few days) and over to Chicago and back down thru Tennessee.....not sure of the exact route or when I'll do it however I'm looking at different routes now. Google maps has the basic route right around 3,000 miles. No oil changes or bike maintenance should be required.
I may pick up Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives book and pick out cool places to eat along the way and base my route off the eateries in the book.
I'm excited about planning this trip, I hope I can make it happen one day!
