Trip to far away

The day has come to pack up and go. The bike has all the fluids changed recently,the brake recall was done and shes shiny and eager to roll. For this trip I have purchased a cooler rack, highway pegs and a "spot me" device. which I practiced using a bit yesterday. Here is the address:

The trip will take us very slowly thru PA, Amish country towards Pittsburgh and North to Detroit where my wife's sister lives. We will stay with them for two days and then head to Upper Peninsula and then to Wisconsin. We will be visiting South Dakota , Wyoming and many other good riding states. The ride will last about a month and ending up at the house in Fl. I will try to post every day with just one or two pics which I promise wont be boring. We are looking to meet as many members of the forum as possible.This ride coincide with a NASSIR meeting but unfortunately we will be out of the area by then. However we could meet up with riders that attend the meeting from Western states. Get your coffee in the AM and ask yourself ; "where the hell is Pete now" By the end of the trip We'll be your friends that you haven't met yet.

Peter,
I wish you and yours a very nice and enjoyable tour.

Sounds like fun to me. Wish we could see you at NASSIR9 but it seems the timing is not going to work out right.

Thank you guys.Not much to report.We left NJ under threats of bad weather but managed to get out of that system without much rain. 1/3 of the trip was completed and we don't want to arrive at our host place before Thursday afternoon. The mission director found a nice hotel on Expedia but the 3.1 miles was actually 31 miles. What's another30 miles on a Goldwing.
The cruise control works great.I congratulate myself for the/ highway pegs and THANK YOU to the guy that instructed me to/ just fill up the hydraulic pump. My wife loves the ride and said its a big difference. We ride on 15 setting

Never say never. I took the heating jackets for the hell of it
with the idea that we use them as wind breaker when on foot.
Letizia said I should take the controllers just in case. When we left Altoona it was 60F so the wife put the heating jacket under the mesh one. Half an hour later the temp droped to 58 F. I stopped again to plug the controller in.(we just had tshirts and mesh jackets on)
It was a good ride thru the PA hills.Later we took the fast ride thru Ohio Tpk. Just finished dinner at a Mexican place with huge margarita and " coronita"
I'm trying to make the spot change the transmitting intervals to 30 mins but my laptop wont upload the program.Later

Peter if you wish help setting SPOT and want outside help, PM the login info to me and I can reset the intervals for you.

Wilcoy02 did that when he did his Alaska trip.

Keep the report fresh with pictures! Enjoy the trip and ride safe.

What works for us: I am the pilot. She is the navigator and entertainment coordinator. That is kinda hard for her because she doesn't like to read maps, but hey.... I can help with that.

Nice color!

Logged in okay and see that current settings are 30 minutes.
next up is 60 minutes and that is too far apart for me personally.
