Two Wheelin' it on The Pony Express Trail

I know that some of you, like me, are history buffs. My pal, Brent Miller at Sojourn Chronicles recently returned from a fascinating motorcycle journey (over 6000 miles in three weeks) that followed the Pony Express Trail. His tale, however, extends beyond the trail to include some other interesting side adventures. Read about his encounters with weather and wind. You'll enjoy his insightful comments on solo riding, friendship and self. I think I remember a few words regarding butt issues too.

No matter the trail or trial, Brent's V-Strom handled superbly under his piloting. Before selecting the F800ST, the "Wee" was high on my list. It's a great bike--has to be--it has the same engine as my beloved and wildly popular, SV650.

Anyway...hop on over to read and enjoy Brent's full account. Brent is a professional photographer/journalist so you'll be gifted with spectacular scenes and wise words. Dang, I should have led you there as the events were unfolding...didn't think of it then.

Dear Sharon:

I am on the road to Tennessee. I guess he adventure has officially started as I nearly whack a couple of deer on Skyline Drive yesterday. These things should be hunted to the brink of extermination.

I arrive at the Raly site on Wednesday,

Fondest regards,

Safe travels Jack. I, too, arrive in TN on Wednesday but am staying overnight with friends in Knoxville. I will look for you on Thursday.

Just letting you know ahead of time that what happens in TN doesn't always have to stay in TN, if you get my drift. While I have not met anyone from the Mac-Pac, I am sure you will be in good hands if you need their help.

have a good ride and return home safely.
