I'm in the middle of a cross country trip on the big Busa ........
I'll post a big write up with some pics as soon as I get home. My first day I put on 1100 miles .......that's not a typo
1100 miles in a day
After my third tank of fuel I was thinking that "this might not of been my best Idea......" but after the chill of the morning wore off, I relaxed and hauled ass.
The second day I ran into Sturgis with a couple of Harley riders who were hauling through South Dakota at a really good clip. Was Kinda funny in that I would pull over with them so they could refuel and I would still have over half a tank left.
The trip has been a blast so far and and it took 4 days to see the pacific ocean. Coast to coast in 4 days! I was held up in Montana cause the hail was coming down the size of marbles and I could only swing ~500 miles for that day.
I did pick up two tickets on the way
The first in Minnesota where I was blatantly destroying the speed limit......
The State officer was really cool about it. Snuck up right on me before hitting the lights. Said he wanted to get my tag before lighting up. "a lotta you guys usually run" he said.
Told him ,"I was too old for that crap" Gave me a sppeding ticket and warned me that If I was 3 more MPH faster I'd have spent the weekend in jail. We talked a good twenty minutes about all kinds of stuff. Was a real nice guy.
Got the Other in Wyoming. Ugliest damn state I've ever seen!. I was being really good and had the throttlemeister pulling me up a big hill and after cresting I started to pick up speed but was busted before I could throttle back. There was a conveniant turn around right there as he was heading at me......Had it been 2 minutes prior or 2 later there would have been no where for him to cross the median. Just dumb luck...... Was thinking about just lettin it rip but there is just too much to loose for a measly $120.00
We chatted about 40 minutes afterward about the weather, riding, Sturgis, deer among other things. Found out the dealer never sent in the registration and I was riding on a dead tag.........Let me go on that one....... Really was a great guy. Just doin what he's paid to do, I guess.
Any way gotta run.......... Headed back to the Atlantic again
Will post some pics when I get a chance to really write this up.
Ther was an incident about 60 seconds ahead of me on the way to Sturgis where two riders wnet down. The pool of blood in the lane was more than enough incentive to always wear full gear. From outside PA all the way to the border of Washington State they'll fine you for no seat belt but you can ride without a helmet..........Ironic isn't it
