USA Tour on a leaky 1976 CB550--2017
« on: September 10, 2017, 04:49:30 pm »
Just had to post my blog here.  I am so proud of Dash he got me home safely even though at 1,000 miles a puck or two gave out and well the rest is oil mess! 
Went to the reunion and beyond.  What an adventure.  And how fortunate I am to have made friends like you all on this forum.  You are the best

I have enjoyed your posts and blog Mooshie and I'm glad everything turned out fine for everybody and no one on the reunion run had any real disasters out there on the road where trouble can wait at any turn. Also wish I could go on a long too haul someday. Take care and congrats to you and your reliable classic machine.

I read your blog and looking at the map it seems you came quite close to where I live. If I knew we could have spotted you a meal and put you up if needed.

But we were boys, and boys will be boys, and so they will. To us, everything was dangerous, but what of that? Had we not been made to live forever?

Mooshie, the pleasure was all our's! You're the real deal. Shine on sister 8)  ;) I have my order in for 2 more but gotta figure out how to sneak it back again. Oh, I'll be happy to translate KY'ian for you. Had I known you were doing The Gorge I could have put in an order of Corn Tonic for you.

I think next year we will have even better events.
If anyone is going on a trip like Mooshie, maybe post you tentative routes then maybe you can meet up with a few more members.
 I enjoyed the blog immensely  .......  a great read..

You covered a lot of ground in 3 weeks yet managed to stop and experience some of the country you were riding through.  Well done, Lisa.
