We just got home today~Fri 18th. Great trip, experienced Seattle, Oregon{I thought Colorado had great roads, Oregon is even better}, saw Craters of the moon, stayed 3 days in Steamboat Springs, then the dreaded Kansas, Rt 70 back to Buffalo, I think every truck in the US was on that road on Thursday, as far as you could see, there were trucks.
Great time, thanks to Steve for un-organizing.

And Andy, you might be in the running for the most miles traveled over-all!


Marcopolo is still on the road rolling up the miles (Energizer Bunny?) Mark, bet you're glad to be way north of all the smoke!

Home! Tired, hungry and very happy to be here. Ken, only 5400 miles, so no prize here.

I got a ticket in Sioux Falls, SD. I didn't notice that the limit went from 75 to 65. Got caught doing 85. He said I would have been fine 10 over, but not 20. What sucks is from where I was parked by the road, I could see a 75mph sign. There's a little stretch of highway neat Sioux Falls, that drops to 65.

More pics and whatnot later. It's time to eat.

Well not that anyone's counting, but here's what I've seen mentioned so far:

Andy - ?
Daniel "Huzband" aka "RoadPhil" - ?
Tom "3Putt" & Joyce - ?
Ed G. "Eddd" = "Just under 7000"
Paul M. - ?
Raaaan - ?
Ken & Donna - 5570
Jeffery T. "Fightingpiper" - 5056


Ed and Andy edged me out by a little. My trip was exactly 6,666 miles. (really!)

Finally made it home tonight at 6:00pm!
Total mileage covered was 7123 miles (11464 km)!
Sure is nice to be home and not HAVE to sit on that bike again for a little while.
Steve (and crew) thanks for all the great work UNorganizing!
Sure made a great excuse to go for a long ride!
My rear tire ( Dunlop Roadsmart) managed to make it all the way home! Just starting to get into the wear bars in the center of the tread.
Now I have to switch modes and go to a vintage event next weekend on the Vincent! Ay least it's only a short distance away (100miles). This time the whole family is going so it will take me all week just to get everything ready for that!

Andy.

If we have to count: home to home around 8.700 (s)miles...

You're right, I'm still on the road, and will be for another two weeks. My wife and I dad a great time in Oregon and Washington. Yesterday, we had a terrific ride from Seattle, heading north and then east along Hwy 20 through North Cascades National Park. Scenery was breathtaking. We're now in Penticton B.C. on Okanagan Lake. It's great wine country with beautiful scenery to boot. Don't know how many miles/kms I've done -- been too busy to check.


We crossed the border at Osoyoos and at 2:30 on a Friday afternoon we were the only people there. It took the customs officer a few minutes to realize we were waiting to cross (guess the bike doesn't make enough noise on approach).

Haven't really seen any smoke, Dave. Hope it stays that way.

I was lucky to run into him while I was walking back from Dairy Queen or someplace on Wednesday night; he was leaving Thursday morning. Glad I saw him, but I know I didn't meet up with all the people who I wanted to see. I think I might have crossed paths with you once or twice, though.
