It’s been a little over nine weeks since I left Northern California on the Ducati.
The trip has been everything I had hoped, including the riding, although some of the days have been long. I’m traveling by light aircraft the next two weeks, but when I get back to the bike in Richmond, TX, I’ll next head to Oklahoma City before returning to southern California. I’m stilling debating the route home, whether to head direct via 40 or head north through Colorado and Utah–it only looks to be about 7 hrs difference or one day extra travel.
