This is my first attemp to take a trip with more than one destination at a time. I'll be leaving Va. the first of Dec. and heading the southern route toward Jackson, Miss. and then west to Arizona I'll be allowing 1 days visit for an ole school buddy in Chandler, Az., one and a half hour visit for John in Mesa (he promised me,he would buy me a cup of coffee, did you hear that CJ), three to four hours for the Rhino's Christmas party in Topeka, Ks. and one to two hours visit for a friend in Jackson, Tenn. This trip calls for a little under 5000 miles, but I'm sure that it will be closser to about 5500 when done. I got my new tires on the front and back, all lube up and nuts tighten up. It's just a waiting game now. Hope the snow waits til next year. Happy Holidays!

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
