Greetings from Kentucky

Hi folks, I am a retired guy, 60, who is about to take on my longest solo tour ... a 'Bucket List' tour, if you will. I am leaving my home in a couple of days, to embark on a six month long tour of North America. I hope to ride through most, if not all of the lower 48 states in no particular order, as well as riding up to Alaska and then south again to head East across Canada from coast to coast, before returning to my home in mid-November.

I took my 2012 Wing in for an oil change and rode out with a new 2018 DCT instead. My 2012 was a good bike, but I just wanted to give myself a reason to get excited about riding again.

You can follow the tour on Facebook. Look for kentuckyrider and my name, Joe Jones, and watch for the usual updates; photos, videos, and a BLOG of events along the way.

As I tend to pack heavy, my Escapade trailer will serve as the 'mule' to carry all of the stuff!

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I may put the photos into a flickr.com album and provide a link. I cannot post things to some two dozen different forums I visit. That requires more time than I am willing to invest.

I get your point and your sarcasm , but you must understand that if I snap a photo or a video with my iPhone, and then I must stop to post it on ...
