    Just back from USA

    What a great trip, 6500 miles coast to coast across the USA, rode some fantastic roads, seen some wonderful sights, had a lot of laughs along the way, was hard work at times but a great experience, really think we seen some of the "real America"

    But most of all, met and rode with some people who I think I could now call friends.

    There will be some great ride reports posted by some people on trip, look forward to reading those.

    Thank You All for your company over past 4/5 weeks, look forward to meeting up again.

    Barney

    "intensive curr burr", probably one of the best lines of the trip, out of many!

    I accomplished what I set out to to:

    1. See the real US the only way a man could, on a bike!
    2. Meet and travel with a fantastic crew!
    3. Enjoy the sights and weather!
    4. Annoy the shyte out of Kev as much as possible, but still come away with my life!

    Thanks Guys and Gal, I had a blast!

    Along with "oh alright then, just don't go past me mums".
    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.

    I'm not doing too bad. Monday & Tuesday were holidays here which meant it was nice and quiet so I was able to get back up to speed pretty quickly.

    Only 27 loads to collect today, which is around the average anyway so not too bad.

    Awesome trip - even if i couldnt remember which leg to limp on
    Still trying to work out the best bits cos it was (nearly) all so good

    Great bunch of people

    Great way to see the states

    Would I do it again? - Yes with one small change...

    I had so much trouble going back to work - I haven't (yet)

    Thanks lads and lass for a great trip!
