Coast to coast and back again, part two

  1. Woah, your 2010 trip looks pretty close to my 2012 trip. I except I was riding a salvage title gs500 with all my crap strapped to it. Those bungees and straps didn’t workout too well for me though.

  2. Just read up to today on advrider.com. Really enjoyable- I am experiencing it vicariously since I have a Hyper 950. I’m feeling a little protective of New England and wish you could’ve experienced a bit of Vermont/NH riding, though it probably doesn’t hold a candle to CO or the Blue Ridge. CT and RI… meh…

  3. Thanks! It was definitely not my intention to rag too hard on the region as I definitely was hoping to make it further north and explore what looks like some gorgeous country. But yeah, the areas I went through were not my favorite. It overall reminded me of socal, where there is absolutely tons of great riding but the effort of getting to and from it is a bit overbearing if you live in any of the actual metro areas.

  5. Unfortunately I started on this leg a couple days after the major flooding in Montana so I had to take the boring easterly route across Wyoming and missed out on Teton, Yellowstone, and the Beartooth. And I'll be hitting Idaho on the way home in a week or so!

  6. If I'm on a fun road in favorable weather, maybe 90 minutes on average. When it's brutally hot and I'm on the interstate, half that.

  7. I am driving my daughter's belongings in a uhaul next month 800 mi. I was planning on taking the monster (m900) but kept wanting to consider taking the hyper (1100SP). Then I see this & know it is possible. Not sure if I should thank or damn you

  8. Haha I don't think many people would accuse either of those choices as being the perfect tool for the job but as far as I'm concerned, the answer is always Hyper!

  9. Wow pretty amazing you did it on that bike without a wind protector. You must be young as that wind blasting me would get old.

  10. It certainly gets old, but I suppose I'm used to it. I like my bikes light and nimble and full fairings don't tend to go with that.
