It was a wonderful day of travel and a fantastic trip. For my first multi-night solo trip, I faired really well. Learned a few things, decided on a couple items I should invest in (a travel coffee cup, for one — the cups from convenience stores are prone to splash back on you), maybe some lowers for my Lindby highway bars, etc.). But, I loved the trip and the more I travel with my VTX 1300R, the more we experience together, the more The X becomes a part of me and the less inclined I find myself to want something else.
I’m already looking forward to my next trip. It will probably be a shorter trip, maybe taking US Rt 50 west through a couple states and back via US Rt 30, but this has not been the last of my long trips.
