One of the things that really helped me on my long ride across the USA a few years ago was the number of people that read my blog. Your words of encouragement, support and ideas were a constant companion as I made my way across America.
A few weeks ago I met a couple of guys, John and Jon, who are about to set out on a 20,000 mile ride across the USA. They are also from the UK and start their ride in early April and their route is set out on the map below. It sounds like a great trip which starts in Florida, takes in southern-most states, heads west to California, up the west coast and then across the northern states to finish in New York. I would encourage you to follow their adventures as they ride their trip of a lifetime.
This blog was originally started to record a five month, 21000 mile tour of the US on my Harley-Davidson. I continue to use this blog to record my own motorcycling adventures, wherever they may be, along with my thoughts and opinions about motorcycling generally.
Having devoted most of my adult life to being a ‘company man’, the transition to the next phase of my life away from the construction industry was always going to include some challenges. Planning and then making my dream trip to explore America on my Harley-Davidson proved to be the ideal vehicle for clearing my mind of old ways of thinking and being. I rode 21,475 miles, in 27 US states in four-and-a-half months.
My motorcycling trips have continued, with journeys across much of Europe, New Zealand, North Africa and Cuba.
A few years ago, I set up and now run Tour1, which takes riders on Harley-Davidson Authorised tours across Europe. See www.tour1.co.uk.
I live just north of London in the UK.
