Wellllll, Don't let this stop you from making a cross country trip on a "questionable" ride.....



Find a reason!

The Grand Canyon is very nice in the fall.

Souinds like you got a decent deal. There's pretty good reasons that the Concours has stayed on the market all this time, namely that Kawasaki got it right the first time.



As for heading across country, there isn't a reason in the world, except for a family emergency, not to do it. What's the worst that can happen out on the road, that wouldn't happen within 25 miles of home? The quick answer is "mechanical breakdown". And that isn't a Big Deal unless you choose to make it so. Accidents, illness, or injury could happen anywhere. Not that sucn things are all that likely.



Having ridden across country a half dozen times, I can only think of a few pieces of advice: (1) Don't try to go too far the first day or two. (2) As is true for any travel by any means, take half as much luggage and twice as much money as you think you need. (3) If you spot a place on the map that looks interesting, take the time to go there.

Hopefully your future holds many long and fun rides. At least that's what I wish for you.



If you have never been out west, on the way to get there lies one of my fav offbeat rides: Nebraska State 2 from Grand Isle to Alliance straight thru the heart of the Sand Hills Country. My second ride thru that area was - lucky for me - during the early stage of the "Central Flyway" waterfowl migration run to the south. Wow. Even down in the marshes around Pilottown, LA I've not seen so many wild geese.



You'll find beaucoup internet resources for your Connie. Have fun!

Default Just in case you didn't know

Copying and pasting the same response on different threads is called spamming. Spamming earned you some time off the last time you did it, and I guess you haven't learned anything from your last vacation from MO. I think I've seen this post at least 6 times already, and I don't think anyone wants to see it again. It wasn't funny then, and it is even less funny now. I figured you would have learned something by now, but I guess that would be asking too much. If you can't take the time to come up with anything else, then go find something else to do, like charging the battery on the bike you don't ride.

Especially since the rating of motorcycles by someone who has never ridden them is beyond bizarre.
