    300 miles per day is just about right for me. Some days more, some less, but as an average it's a pretty good number. Lets you stop and sightsee or whatever, and your route looks like it'll have plenty to see!

    I for one can't wait for your trip through the deep south. If there is some way you can stop by this corner of Tenn., Ga. , and NC then we'll make it a point to gather all the local Cafe members together for a greet and meet. Why it would be a meeting of .............


    Wait for it........

    Love it, Doug.

    It's certainly my hope to see you all. At some point in the next week or so, I'll post a possible route through your area and get some feedback from you folks. I'm wondering, for instance, how much of the BRP to ride. I read somewhere that the speed limit is 45 mph, and I wasn't sure I'd want to spent a whole day at that speed.

    More later . . .

    Hell's teeth! That could be used as a punishment!

    "Right, try this Triumph Explorer. Wind it up through the gears. How good does THAT feel then?
    Now, your punishment is to ride it all day at 45 mph.."

    There would be an international outcry, 'human rights' and 'civil liberties' groups would band together to outlaw such cruel and unnatural treatment of a poor motorcyclist. Previous bad feelings would be forgotten, Obama, Cameron and Angela Merkel would issue a joint 'statement of intent' to have the practice outlawed, saying "It's just too much to bear.."

    To top it off, a ticket on the BRP is a Federal offense. But, I believe it's 50 mph most places and worth it for a day's ride. Usually there's alternate routes available if you decide you've seen enough. If you're staying off the interstates, you're limited to mostly 55 or 60 mph anyway, so it's really not that big of a penalty, imo.

    I live just off the BRP... It's beautiful but getting behind a motor home is painful. Speed limit is 45 mph most places. However it seems to me there are fewer Rangers patrolling it. It is a Federal ticket which used to mean that no point just a fine. However that may be changing?? Ther are sooo many better roads off the BRP but they do have more driveways and more bubbbas too.

    I would avoid Columbia, SC in July like the plague. I had a set of Dunlop Qualifiers literalty melt on me the road temps got so hot. Unless you've got someone to see why not head up to North Georgia and do some twisties. Augusta to Columbia is booooooooring. Going up through the Appalachians via North Georgia will be more colorful and not as hard on you and the bike.
