Got back from my 12-day trip to Milwaukee on Wednesday afternoon.
We stayed off the interstates and here's where we stopped each night:
- Pagosa Springs, CO
- McCook, NE
- Ames, IA
- Racine, WI - we stayed with friends for 4 nights
- Rockford, IL - to visit my niece
- La Harpe, KS - to visit one of the guy's folks
- Liberal, KS
- Socorro, NM
We rode in Arizona, Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico.
I filled the tank 26 times and used 98 gallons of fuel. I averaged 43 mpg over the 4,265 mile odyssey. Turned over 51,000 on my '11 FLTRU on the trip.
We rode in maybe
30 minutes of rain over the entire route: north of Farmington, NM and in Rockford, IL. We waited out a thunderstorm near St Louis inside a car wash.
Saw lots of great sights, rode lots of nice roads, met lots of great people... generally had an awesome trip. Finagled a parade pass and rode in the parade. Went to MoCo headquarters, Museum, power train plant. Summerfest grounds.
Still haven't gotten to all the photos, but here's a couple:
