Yeah, BIG corp ruined about every site they touched, and are touching. Sure lost a lot of good faithful members.

The folks at sohc4.net* did exactly that back in 2011. In fact, my avatar is SOHC's equivalent of Hobo (named GZ). In one riding season, GZ touched all 48 continuous states, and several Canadian provinces. He logged 22K miles, then was mailed to Europe and then Australia for shorter tours. We've done annual tours and get togethers in the US since then, but nothing as grand as the relay in 2011.

*SOHC4 = Single Over Head Cam 4's = Honda CBs (350, 400, 500, 550, 650 & 750) from 1969-1982

Updates: Here are threads on the 2011 tour. If ur serious about an all-state Hobo tour, here’s An idea of what it will take... http://forums.sohc4.net/index.php/board,125.0.html

Senator Booker says you can drive from New Jersey to Hawaii....

Quote:
During the all-night Senate speech about climate change, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said he drove to Hawaii as a teenager.

"I just do want to say that right after I turned 17 and got my New Jersey driver's license, one of the earliest places I drove was a trip — the only trip I have ever taken was to Hawaii," he said on the floor at about 3:00 a.m.

"You didn't drive to Hawaii," Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., said, correcting the freshman senator.

The real challenge would be fuel, wouldn't it? Let's see...

200 miles per 5 gallon tank (leaving the .8 gal. cushion) I would need to carry an extra how many 5 gallon containers?

The answer; from L.A., 12.5, so rounding up 13, 5 gallon containers, and hopefully there won't be a lot of head wind. The up side is, traffic should be light.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Well Hobo has been found!
I'm making arrangements to pick him up and bring him to Wisconsin in another week or two.

But I have some... ahhh... Disturbing news.
Hobo seems to have defected over to the North American Goldwings Forum.
There are updates and photos there from 2017 and a couple from 2018.
I'm guessing that happened when big corp swallowed up this forum. Simple conjecture on my part and perhaps a bit presumptuous but it's the only idea that comes to mind right away.

At least we know he's still alive and kicking. Er, I mean riding.

I think I already mentioned that, if not, I should have.
Hobo is part of the NASR summer rally events, and NASR has been moved away from this forum simply because Big Corp totally ignored my requests to support it.


The NASSIR 9 rally in Sioux Falls was the last one hosted on this forum.


Glad you found Hobo, and are going to see that he has a joyous riding experience.
Please try to keep him sober, he has a history of hiccups.

I have Hobo at this present time. Unfortunately, this has been a bad year for me in terms of riding. I'm in the middle of my house rehab project. I have Hobo out a couple of times. David has contacted me & making arrangements to hand him off.
