Ahhhh...bittersweet memories, my buddy up in Alaska was supposed to buy a GS1200 along with me and we were going to ride back to NY over a period of a few weeks (a la Long Way Round
). He bailed, and out the window went my reason for a GS purchase.
Oh yeah, and now my adventures consist of weekend trips to Home Depot and exterior illumination for the holidays. Livin' the dream!
At least I've done the cross-country drive a couple times, the cross-country bicycle trip, and hiking the Long Trail. Cross-continent motorcycle trip, hiking the AT, and a Rover trip to South America will have to wait
