East coast to West coast trip

Well I managed to trip my clock on my "X" to over 100,000 miles on this trip. I did over 740 miles adverage on my four day trip home and just managed to avoid the snow in Montana. That said, I still managed to pour water out of my boots, riding in low forty degree weather and as you know, on a naked bike is on the cold side I left Springfield, Or. on Aug 13 and returned home from Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia on Sept. 10th. Life is good!

I like my Trike....also have a 2008 Honda VXT1300
also have a 2003 Honda GL 1800
also had a 1987 Honda Gl 1200
also had a 1986 Honda Sei1200

Fantastic Luddy,

Glad that you were able to get your problems handled and are now safe back at home.

No matter where it is, there is just nothing like home.
