A little business trip

I had a big show to produce in Orlando so i decided to make a ride out of it.
This was my first big multi day trip.

For the trip i got the Givi bags. Love them!



When i rolled out of town a couple of guys from my vintage bike club escorted me into Arkansas.



Early morning in Mississippi looking for "the crossroads"...



My goal was to ride "2 lane blacktop" as much as possible. I love the little surprises it brings.

Never seen crop-dusting in person before!



Made it just a little ways into Louisiana.



Then the V got to salt for the first time!



Then hundreds of miles through Florida forests. Who knew?



Got to Orlando, did a little work...



Then headed home up the east coast.

St Augustine FL was a nice surprise.



Georgia was great too!



Then Tennessee storms made for some adventure of the annoying kind...



Home in 2514 miles and 10 states!



The V did great. Still can't find anything wrong with this bike!

100 countries or bust...80 so far.
Rides: Ecuador, Haiti, Laos, Sri Lanka, Tibet & Vietnam

That 'moss' in your St. Augustine pic - had a tour there and was told that Henry Ford, when he first saw the moss, thought it'd make GREAT stuffing for Model T seats, and CHEAP...!

What he wasn't aware of was the little 'chiggers' that live in it, so those seats had to be replaced....
