Ok Jones, 2700 miles? You're officially nuts! But an enviable 2700 mile nut! I don't care to drive 2700 miles much less bike it! It does look like a once in a lifetime incredible journey though! Your posts are entertaining and well written, the trip looks fun too! Got this info from Steve Hern this weekend. We met at WC's this past Saturday & Sunday following a week in Destin. I had no idea you were doing this. Be careful and don't over do it,! Right!
