    Default Spot messaging

    AsJust wondering if anybody's posters their share spot page here? Build a spotwalla page so we can follow them on their trips. You can follow me to the Outer Banks North Carolina down to Key West Florida and back to East Tennessee. https://spotwalla.com/tripViewer.php...956eded302544e month planning on doing a IBA ride 50cc Jacksonville to San Diego in under 50 hours on my RT Spyder.

    Thank you. We start at 5AM in the morning. Looks like we're going to try a 1500 miles and 24 hours to start this ride also.

    Default Last Spot at 5:07 this morning

    Looks like you may be on your way, the last location seems to be just off the beach, and I guess you have your vial of Atlantic H2O.

    We DMF on the 1500 miles in 24 hours. My buddy got a nail in the tire. 351 miles from the end. Now the Interstate shutdown in Arizona. Back in the shop getting the tire patched from the inside. Still got time to make it though. Gas stops take a little bit longer because people come up to talk about the spider.

    Default Hope you made it

    I saw your location last night in Lordsburg and it appeared you had time to spare. Then later the location was around Tucson and it looked like you would run out of time.

    I noticed a west-to-east rider with "slingshot" as a Spot name, and he/she seemed to stop around Yuma. Let us know if you hear anything about that ride.

    It looks like your RT was up to the task and that is so encouraging since I see so many electrical problems reported.

    Hope you can do some sight seeing on the way back.

    Be safe.

    The guy on the side shot was a witness for the ride. We made it with 20 minutes to spare. 3 hours on the side of the road fixing the tire half hour replugging it at a truck stop 3 hours at another truck stop taking the wheel off and fixing it made this a very hard ride but we did it. After we finished I heard strange noises coming out of the spider sounded like a dog panting. After further investigation it was not the spider it was my friend laying on the ground spider okay buddy will be.

    Default Outstanding Ride

    I'm so glad you finished on time. Looks like you ran a very smart ride. I enjoyed my vicarious ride.

    Hope you have the time to smell the flowers on the way back.

    Going into the Sequoia National Forest, Death Valley, lost wages, Grand Canyon, on the way home. Maybe in the future we can do some riding together. I'll have the pictures on my Flickr page ASAP
