    Well its been an adventure so far. We left for Roma, Tx wednesday morning to spend the night with my buddy's folks since they live right on the border...all full of confidence and excitement.

    We rode in the rain for two hours and after spending the night in a fleabag motel in Nebraska City, NB made it to Emerson, MB, Canada...

    So this took care of the border to border, 2000 miles in less than 48 hours and 3000 miles in less than 72 hours

    By the way...for those of you who would like us to plan rides in Texas earlier in the year. The picture below was taken in San Antonio, not far from the twisted sisters

    Sounds like an awesome ride. Border to border is pretty **** cool.

    I'd love to do an ocean to ocean, but not sure I wanna do it ironbutt style.

    That is our next big ride...the 100cc (coast to coast to coast in less than 100 hrs). Just have to figure out where to leave my gun while we run to the pacific through the Peoples Republic of Californistan
