It is a 1950s kind of 2 to 4 lane strait line.!2d24.5550593

2K miles+ but what I was thinking was do it with a pusher trailer that doubled as a camper.

I know it is not what you were thinking but has some advantages. A, a camper. B, carry every thing you might need. And 3, can use a 4 stroke with a CVT driving small, gokart wheels giving you speed, torque and motor longevity. In what your thinking, is a good option, I think.

Just rambling.

Here's my thought.....

We should all get our bikes to Denver. Go on a good ride, then eat at the Buckhorn Exchange. If we should have any money left, just donate that to St. Judes. We all get together and visit with Tom, have a great ride in some awesome scenery, a very memorable meal, donate to a worthy cause, and a strengthening fellowship of the MBers.........I see no downside!!
You're never lost until you run outa gas.
