Well, my new mileage record is 560mls in one day!!
I can't say it was all enjoyable, but the 80mph dash in the dark to get home at a pre-determined time got my sphincter twitching !!!
I enjoy my 250ml quick bimbles in between sight seeing,coffee'n'burger haunts & just smelling the air!!
That's what motorcycling is to me, mile munching is for folks on a mission or they're just out to prove something or impress people!
Anyway, day 1 was to leave Missouri via Arkansas then to Memphis Tennessee, home of Elvis,MLK,& The Blues!
Downtown Beale St is great, & at night it's a neon show of lights of which most are attached to the Bling-Bling motorcycles.
Next day was an easy 300+mls to the Barber Motorcycle Museum In Leeds, which is just East of Birmingham Alabama.(see video)
I couldn't decide where to next, because even after asking "the locals", no one came up with any "must visits" in the area, so I thought I'd head back towards the Mississipi River Delta region (not The Delta at the southern end)
How bloody flat & boring that was, & the only suggestion any locals there could come up with was to go & visit the casino!!!FFS!!!
So I thought l'd save $60-$100 on accommodation & set myself a personal record, so that day I crossed Alabama, then Mississipi, then headed up Arkansas to home in southern Missouri.
Oh, just as a thumbs up to me, I'm SO glad I fitted my Tom Tom GPS that I have only ever used in the motorhome or truck, it was a Godsend when going through Memphis/Brimingham/Little Rock & even took me to the doorstep of the 'bike museum after punching in the lat/long coordinates.
Anyway, here's the video of the museum visit:
