I ran over a squirrel on the way back 😦 He was chillin on the roda playing with his nuts, I slowed down and thought I had plenty of clearance, but at the last second he did one of those squirrel things where he does right and then left and then right again. At the last secong he just happened to bolt in the wrong direction and got “buelldozed”.
Oh and by the way my HD-powered Buell has been pretty damn reliable so for, however it is still minty fresh with barely over 6k miles on it, but other than the front brake rotor getting some funny hot spots, it whas been reliable and super low maintanance. I would not change one thing about that bike other than the handlebars and hand controls, which seem to have come from a toy factory. I think my next addition to the stable will be an 800GS Beemer so I can hit the road and the trails with some luggage attached. Or at least a large displacement XR/KLR if the money is tight.
I really like that 800GS too. I wanted one of those for this trip. I really like your buell. It has great styling and seems to handle nice.
Mike, I’m one of the guys out front having a beer that you told your LONG version of your story too. I have to say that I truly admire you for doing this trip and getting away from the everyday hum drum ways of life that are so easy to get trapped by. Want to wish you the best and to be safe, and when all this is over I hope you can write a book about this trip with many great photos of all the sites you have seen. I will surly be one of the first to buy one. God bless and have a great time! Mark Wilson
Great to hear from you Mark. Thanks for the well wishes and I will enjoy every mile because of the support from good people like you. Thanks again.
hey man it was really nice meeting you and hope all is well with your trip thus far. I will be checkin your website from time to time to see how its going. If you ever get the chance to be back thru Mt Airy then stop on by the shop. Good luck with your trip and again it was nice talking with you on Tuesday.
Don’t worry about being a noob – it goes away. At least you got off the couch and started.
I have a couple friends with Uly’s, they love them but seem to go through rear bearings about once a year.
My fear of the unknown has certainly diminished in the last couple of days. I’m really looking forward to what’s out there now. Forgive me for not knowning, but what is a Uly?
Michael, this is good stuff man!! I get on here almost every evening to check out your pics and updates…, I actually look forward to reading what your doing, where your at and where you are heading. Take care and be safe. I look forward to seeing you when you get back.
Man Bruce that’s awesome. Thanks for the help with the parts and I’ll always update asap. Right now I’m sitting in a Wendys in Helen Georgia because they have wi-fi. So far I have love every minute of the trip and I haven’t been this happy in years.
Great survey, I love your post.
