My sons and another father and son recently completed a ride from Canada to Calif. It was incredible. Here is a link to some fun pictures of the trip.

Way cool! Thanks for sharing the ride with us! There is little thats better than a great bonding experience like that!

Some buddies of mine just completed (yesterday) a ride from Cardston, Alberta to Salt Lake City, Utah! I got to ride with them when they came through. I wish I could have gone on with them!

Thanks again!

Bob

In 17 days of riding we camped every night but one. That was a nice break. However we all decided that camping was alot more fun and when we did stay at a motel it was stressfull having to deal with the bikes, deciding on the motel ect, the exspense ect.

Thanks for the inspiration towards my goal of a Victoria to Los Angeles tour.

Looks like it was fun.
