Five days into a who-knows-how-long tour of the USA. Starting each day about 0800, spending about 8 hours in the saddle a day, the rest of the time seeing the sights, stopping at interesting places, touring little downtowns, taking pictures .....
On the back roads, averaging about 43 MPH over 1700 miles so far. Running 70 on the curvy two-lanes doesn't make up for running 20 around the courthouse square or waiting for the flagman to release you! But we've got no schedule to keep.
Amazing amount of beautiful countryside. "High Wind Warning" on the Mackinaw Bridge this morning, but it didn't look too bad so we went over anyway, had to ride in a "lean" but the big Triumph doesn't mind steel grates, went about 40 MPH and it was fine, no sightseeing on the bridge for the pilot though!.
In the middle of Wisconsin at the moment, amazed that the motels were mostly full, it's because of a &*$*#( PACKERS GAME 3 hours away from here! Every motel within 90 miles of Green Bay is booked solid. These people are fanatics.
The Black Hills in a couple days, looks like, then who knows ..... !
