The night before has finally come! I want to thank all of you here on the forum for your time in sharing advice, routes, places to stay, offers of help, contact information, and everything else you have done to help me be as prepared as possible. I will roll out of Wichita around 1:00 pm tomorrow to embark on the 8,000+ mile solo journey. The trip will not be perfect. Problems such as weather, moto issues, strangers, wildlife, etc., may find me. But I'm not doing this trip for the perfect. I'm doing it for the experience. For that is what makes a true adventure. My adventurous heart is soon to be at home! I'll post updates here as I can and when I return I'll try my best to provide a super ride report!
