TGE- to post photos you have to 1st put them up on a photo hosting site like Picasa, Smugmug, etc. then go to that photo, copy the url link (usually by right click on photo) and paste it in your post here by clicking on the photo icon. I would have posted a few of us at the start of the BRP but left my camera at my sister's when I stopped by later Sun.

Keep it rolling rubber side down!

One of my hopes is to ride (not drive) the BRP. Beautiful pics!

TGE, so hows life on the road, any more flats (hope not)? So you on the west coast now? Hope all is well.

DCrider!
hello, sorry for the long delay on the response!! laptop has been out of commission for a while but now back online.

Back in Seattle just before christmas after 12,000 miles in the saddle over two and a half months. covered 35 states. Unfortunately couldn't complete the loop from Ventura Ca to Seattle due to an obligation to help a friend tow a fishing boat up i-5. The weather was terrible the whole way north anyway and would have been a pretty miserable three wet and cold days back on the bike.

What a trip!

here's a few pics from the journey...http://picasaweb.google.com/oneillsk...eat=directlink

Seriously f****n awesome man. I have been debating my next bike and the scrambler is it. Looks like it went everywhere it needed to and packed everything really well.
Hats off to you man. You did EXACTLY what im planning on doing. This year im doing a ride from Chicago to Ft.Lauderdale and back on a Thruxton. We will see how that one turns out!
Do you plan on doing any more of those rides? If so let me know when you come through Indiana/ Chicagoland!!!

lots of nice shots TGE, how many times did ya have to jump to get photo #93

Looks like you made it to all the places you planned, and hopefully no more flats and tow trucks along the way.

If you ever get back east again you're welcome to hole up in DC again.

Cheers!

Awesome trek, man! I just picked up an 07 Sprint ST and am just waiting for my cold-weather gear to show up and I'm about to head south for a week once I can get a chance to get out of the area! Gonna head to florida for a few days, hit deals gap on the way and come back. Hope to possibly do a much longer trip sometime later this year. Congrats on your expedition!

Never look down on someone unless you're picking them up.
