Entertaining stuff. Thought you were older. Maybe it's the profile pic.

If you do more reports in the future, and take requests, more detail on the route you took would be good.

Cool

Great report.

You must have a lot of energy to do the long distances you do and still have time for photos and write up.

Thanks for this. Of course I'm a lot older that you/

This report was written from the comfor of my own home, just took detailed notes every night so I would remember .

The next trip (leaving in a week) will be written on the road, so it'll be a bit more sparatic.

Ah, to have that kind of time and seemingly no responsibilities that would allow you to put together a trip like that. So many of us (talking about me here) can only dream about this with our daily grind of work, family, kids, and all the responsibilities/stressors that go with that.
You keep posting and I'll keep reading.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

The trips that we go on are never really "planned." We get on the bikes every morning, find a place to eat and then roughly plan where we are going for the day.

I've found over the years of moto-touring, for me to really enjoy trips, I cannot plan routes. I just let the routes and experiences happen.
