Interesting Facts: I have only been riding for two years, but ride almost daily putting ~20K miles a year on the bike since I bought it in July of 2010. Ten Months after getting my ride I was doing multi-day touring trips with my riding buddy to some of the best riding on the east coast. I enjoy trip and route planning, along with photography and video. Two years later I’ve completed my first certified Long Distance ride covering 1080 miles in ~20 hours from Virginia to Florida with my wife on the pillion.
