Another great ride across America to visit veterans in homes and hospitals, recognize veterans from the War on Terror with medals and thanks, visit school kids, and pay our respect at cemeteries and memorials. Lots of stories and laughs, camaraderie, support, food, and entertaining weather. Most wore denims, leathers, heated liners, and rain gear most of the ride. Winter storm Valerie forced I-80 to close in Wyoming, so sadly had to miss two hospital visit to get back on schedule in Grand Island NE. Although, a group from Grand Island will return for those visits.
I returned home after 5 weeks with 7,600 miles behind me. Check out those spark plugs, 96,000 miles on the Fat Boy; 71 hp and 82 lbs torque! It’s a blessed bike that runs strong for those who gave all.
