Every fall I try to do a long bike trip. This one will start in Tampa August 30, then to Miami, then New Orleans (i.e. Biloxi), backtrack to Atlanta and the Outer Banks of NC, Norfolk, Eastern shore of Maryland, Lewes Del and ferry to Cape May, then Atlantic City, then eastern NY, to Connecticut shore. Some local riding for a week or so, then Poconos, Eastern PA, then Virginia, Shenandoah, Skyline, Blue Ridge, Smokies, Tail of the Dragon, Cherahala Parkway, then back to Atlanta. Then turn left, route 40 out to Vegas and then Reno for the month of October. Then some local running and back to..... depends....either Biloxi again then Tampa by mid November. Or from Reno right to Tampa. Main stopping points are....casinos and the Reno gig is a month poker tournament.
About 2 months. Perhaps, what?, 10,000 miles? Something like that.

Any special places I should not miss? It'll be solo from Tampa to Atlanta, then 2-up from Atlanta until back to Atlanta, then solo again out to Reno and back to Tampa.

Peace and fair winds. Mark.

PS: I've posted my proposed maintenance schedule, for before the trip begins, on the Tech forum. Any suggestions on additional maintenance or spares to carry for the GL1500, please advise as well!

Well, once you're under way give us a shout when you come down the Parkway heading toward Asheville, NC and maybe we can get some folks up to ride with you for a while.

Make sure you have full coverage insurance for the bike with tow assistance included. Wouldn't hurt to have one of the newer small netbooks for internet access, never know when you might need to give a shout out for help.

Oh, a good digital camera for plenty of pics, you know we always love pics.
