Nice "apes" Joe. You look like a "bad guy" from an old biker movie.

What are the odds that a guy from Fl and one from Ca have travelled the country all over the states , on a Goldwing ,except the same three states?
Interesting.

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

Alaska and Hawaii are obvious. North Dakota is slightly curious. I mean...if you've been to Montana, South Dakota and Minnesota...how'd you miss it?

Simple, I rode from UPMichigan to Wisconsin, thru Minesota and S Dakota
Then Wyoming and Montana.
I didn't feel the need to see N Dakota and I still don't.
To see every state was not my goal, but so it happened.
The question is how come YOU missed N Dakota. Lol

That was back in 1972, It was a 72 K1 750. Every summer I would grow my hair long and wear a beard for the biker season. My sister in law worked for American Honda in Gardena and she was able to buy a new Honda every 6 months car or bike for 10% below dealer cost. She got that bike for her dad. After 6 months Honda came out with the K2 750, it had the idiot lights in a small cluster on the handlebars, the K1 which that bike was had them in the speedo and tach. and he wanted the K2. So I got that bike for what the K2 cost my sister in law out the door was $1281

There really isn't much there. I enjoy historic sites, so...

To be honest, when we traveled we were always with 2 other couples that have been all over the US and Canada many times. Ed & June and Don & Connie were their names.

Since the wife and I were new to riding at that time we just followed them. When someone would ask me if I have ever been to a specific I would answer ASK ED OR DON. My nick name when I was in a club was WRONG WAY ROVITO. When I led a ride everyone would say, Joe is leading so we are going to have a lot of U Turn practice. I always got lot even after I would pre rode a route.Those were the days before GPS.
