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.

It has been an adventure, I am now in rock springs Wyoming, after running into a hail storm and high winds I had to turn back for the night and not make it to newton dam in Utah

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

I have been stopping at every Walmart to get frog togs but they have been sold out. I have a poncho tucked in my pants under my jacket and garbage bags over my socks (poor mans rain gear) I'm in Ogden Utah now and it's still snowing and raining

When I started I was givin the tip to put a sheep pelt on the seat, due to the high cost I decided to use a bathroom Matt, it works amazing, comfortable and dries super quick and sheds the water. Made for a comfortable dry ride
