At the urging of jdeereanton I am posting one of my trip reports. This was my first motorcycle trip ever and consisted of 1400 miles over six days in Northern CA. What a blast! It answered many questions about the suitability of the SWing as a two up touring machine. Here is the link to a pdf file of my report which includes itinerary, route maps, a few photos and waaaaay too much verbage

MikeH,

In my opinion more verbiage is better. I know the axiom - a picture is worth a thousand words. But, words can be used to paint a beautiful picture. Reading a detailed description of an event draws me into the experience.

I reread the post - even though I remember reading it when you first posted it on the Yahoo site. Good narrative.

Great report sounds like a fantastic trip sadly in the uk many of us just dream of sunshine rides of that sort of distance,hopefully one day my plan is to ride the uk coast just go south to the beach then toss a coin for right or left then see where life takes me

DennisB - I haven't been on that road, but would like to. Sooooo many roads.....so little time.

Dale - I'm glad you mentioned it. I enjoyed re-reading it too. Brought back a lot of great memories. It was quite an adventure for someone as new to riding asd I was.

John - I developed the philosophy that wherever you are, the scenery is better when viewed from two wheels. A coastal trip around Great Britain sounds like an awesome ride

Wow that was an amazing write up. Crater Lake and the Redwoods are always a treat. You did such a good job describing how the trip went, and how you prepared. You were so concerned about your wife's experience which I thought was great. The cell phone story was funny, take a licking and keeps on ticking I guess. Your pictures were really nice. The one with the sunset was great.
That was quite an adventure. I hope to venture out like that some day.
