While I ride across the US, it is almost entirely in solitude. After the first 1-3 miles each morning, the riders spread out to go at their own desired speeds. I’ve been riding alone, and enjoying the quiet and the views from my 35-40mph perch.
Nice pictures. They give a real sense of the distance and the solitude — and a bit of the different pace.
Sept. 23rd Thursday
Thanks for the snaps. 35-40 sounds might nice after fighting traffic at 75 between here and Phoenix. Plus the occasional speeder. If I’m going to ride up on the Velo (or the Enfield for that matter) I have found frontage roads and two land highways are much more comfortable. After Santa Monica VOCNA member Tom Ross is going to help me remove the motor to be delivered to Mike Jongblood. I’m looking forward to seeing you all en masse.
See you soon, Jim A. Velo ready to roll.
any of the SoCal Velo Fellows going to come into Santa Monica?
Pete: Tom Ross wanted to come but had a conflict. Too bad since he was actually going to ride his Venom up and meet me (and you) in Victorville and ride in together. The only other person that I communicated with was Paul d’Orleans who said, “It would be a hoot to show up.” I’ll call him and remind him. Of course my daughter and two grandkids will be there, but I suspect that has more to do with me than you. Sorry. Other than that, who knows. Three weeks ago I didn’t know I’d be there.
See you soon and keep on truckin’. Jim A.
Looks like the old Premier has gotten past her teething problems. Just think what those would be like back in the day. My hat is off to you and all the other riders on this wonderful adventure.
