Oh, this is good.  I see now that the trip was in Sept. and he has documented it, but I stopped myself to wait for your write ups and I'll watch his section along with it.

Excellent job and I'm looking forward to seeing how it progressed!

Corona-cation - Final days of preparation

Before the popcorn runs out, let's continue this saga. 

Josh brought it down to the wire with his bike.  Here, let Josh tell you with the video:

Corona-cation Ep 2 Across the U.S.A. on a DYNA?! FORCED into a NEW PLAN

" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>[/youtube]

Now, Josh bought this bike sight unseen.  The seller assured him that the bike was road ready.  However, once Josh got the bike home he found out that was not true.  The bike needed a front tire.  Now remember this is 4 days before he was leaving for the trip.  He ordered one and it was delivered the day before his departure from his house in Florida.  Talk about cutting it close!!!!  There were still alot of unknowns with this bike and he has a 500 mile shake down the next day to meet with Mike and I in Mobile.  Mike and I nicknamed the bike the "Baby Wing", which did not have cruise control and I will save that for a later story.

Mike has to come from Fort Payne to Mobile.  However, he did not do that on a bike.  He drove his F150 to Mobile and was borrowing a bike from his father-in-law (Josh's dad - Jeff).  Jeff allow him to borrow his Honda NC 700 (now remember these boys have never been on a long bike trip of any kind!!).  Jeff assured him that it was ready for the trip (Jeff rides motorcycles as well) .  So all Mike had to do was pack his bag and get to Mobile.

Now I had to get my bike, the 2016 Goldwing and trailer ready to roll.  The bike already had 16,000 on the tires, so she got a new set of shoes.  She also got an oil change.  Now, the trailer got a workout the last time it was used.  It came from Nashville to Pensacola at about 100 mph due to an emergency.  So the bearings were iffy.  I changed bearings and tires.  I loaded the trailer with the old tires, two 5-gallon containers of gas, an ice chest (with sweet tea and bottled water) and my gear.  There was still plenty of room to load the guys' stuff.  I carried the spare gas because of prior trips I knew that gas stations where few and far in-between and did not know what Mike and Josh's fuel range would be. 

It was getting close to leaving and I was waiting to see how the two novices riders would make out.  I knew it was going to be an adventure.  They keep asking me if I will be alright with the long mileages.  Little did they know, I would be just Fine!!!!  I had the Goldwing!!   :)

To be continued.............
