I guess as long as I'm
here, I may as well
wash my bike...
And with that, I have now
ridden my faithful FZ1
in all of the Lower 48
States (plus some bits of
Canada here and there).  
Not too bad, for a girl!
(or at least that's
what I hear...)
Here I am celebrating
my return at the
Pismo Beach Pier, with
a particularly vicious
case of Helmet Hair.  

See? See?  

Mike does it to me, too,
when he's the one
holding the camera!
The states I passed through on this trip are, in order:  
California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee,
Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland,
Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Vermont, Massachusetts,
Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, (Quebec), (Ontario), Michigan,
Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon.  

I have now ridden in every state except Hawaii (I've been to Hawaii,
I just didn't ride when I was there since I was only about 11 at the time.)  

As I mentioned, I have a lot more stories than pictures on this ride,
but I love to share what I have so feel free to ask!  
Thank you once again for sharing in my adventures!
With the usual mixed emotions, I
arrived home almost a month after
my journey began.  

9,317 miles, nearly all of it
back roads and bad weather
(not counting the Iron Butt).

It's always good to be home,
but then again, it's always good
to be on the road.
