Brian, great idea. I have done the Superior challenge in Canada starting in Wawa, and doing both the north and west loop. Great riding, very tiring at times, but what a rush. We did it with 4 guys, no chase vehicle, but plotted out fuel stops and food stops for the entire trip. We did this for 5 years straight and it finally got way too expensive for our budgets. We normally did 200-250 miles a day, starting at 8:00 a.m. after breakfast and hoping to get to the next motel top by 5:00 p.m. so we could hit the beer store by 6:00 p.m. before they close. LOL.... Great idea!

Why Jonny Ringo! You look as though somebody just walked over your grave.

I don't let many peeps drive the 500 hp truck . not just anyone can , but I do let some that I think can handle 800 lbs of torque off idle in slick conditions.
