Pensacola Florida to Bend Oregon

I recently decided instead of shipping my bike to my new place in Oregon I would ride it across the country. 6 days 400-500 miles a day. I currently have 1200 miles to go and I have been avoiding interstates the whole way to see small town USA.

Always remember that for every mile of highway there are two miles of ditches.

Back in black Mesa Oklahoma I wound up on a cattle road, had to ford a 3ft creek and move cattle out of the way. The street 750 pulled through like a champ

It's a machine and very road worthy, I did a little dirt biking with it lol, I have seen some amazing sights and went through the worst nature could offer. It got a little over heated after a sandstorm in Texas and I had to clean the radiator out but great since then
