Memorial Weekend Ride

Post by roykibbe » Wed Jun 01, 2011 2:46 pm

A friend and I just rode from Chicago to Auburn Alabama and back on two 2003 Goldwings. Effortless trip although it was all Expressway driving for the most part. 840 miles going there, normal gas and rest stops, but no overnights. We broke up the trip coming home, 350 miles the first day and 480 the next. And Birmingham, Alabama traffic is no picinic! Anyway, got 38.3 miles to the gallon and the bikes performed perfectly. We did see a few "other" type bikes on the side of the road being worked on!

I spent my weekend only driving 300 miles (150 saturday and 150 sunday) but all off road on dirt tracks!! Had an amazing time and found some very beautiful places to visit.. I love Dual sport bikes, not as comfy as a wing, but I love seeing places that you know almost no-one else has seen..
