Confirmed Masochist; Confirmed Motorcycle Trip
I am a masochist, no question about it.

Oh, the motorcycle is finally back in my possession and in working condition. The cross-country motorcycle road trip to Atlanta is officially a go. I'll be emailing contacts to confirm stops and start looking for hosts for a couple of them on CouchSurfing.

The planned stops are:
Salt Lake City, Utah
Boulder, Colorado
Kansas City, Missouri *
St Louis, Missouri *
Cincinnati, Ohio **
Greenberg Greenville, South Carolina
Charlotte, North Carolina **
Atlanta, Georgia

* Looking for a host on CS.
** May skip or go an alternate route

I guess you will find out if your bike has been properly repaired in the first couple hundred miles. Stay safe and keep well hydrated! Good Luck.

Good point, yeah. So far I've only run it down to the end of the street and back. Sunday I'll be going on a local motorcycle run down to Temple Bar, AZ and back to Las Vegas. That's a couple of hours each way so that might be a good indicator before stranding myself in the middle of nowhere.

Thanks. :-)

at least there won't be snow on the ground :)

Heh; you mean Greenville?

Talked to my roomy, who said it's fine if you crash here, BTW.

heheh, oops. Yeah, Greenville. :-)

Cool, thanks. I'm looking forward to meeting. Anyone who initiates a meeting is someone I want to meet.

Heh; well, I'm pretty gregarious. And my roomy is very laid-back.

I'll be off on the 28th, I'm sure.

If you're requesting off on the 28th, and you work in the morning anyway, might it be easier to aim for the 29th since I'll be arriving late on the 28th and I don't need to leave until at least 2pm the next day to get to my next destination?

Actually, yes; thanks for letting me know; be easier to get Sunday off anyhow.

Cool, glad that might work out better.
