So a cat I work with and I were planning this ride for like almost a year. Hurricane messed up the first date and the RONA rolled through work and messed up the second date for my boy. I didn't want to miss my opportunity so I rolled solo. The route all planned out on the H-D route planner even down to the gas stops. Loaded the into my BOOM GTS so all I had to do was follow along. The H-D NAV worked flawlessly by the way. I packed up the bike with stuff I thought I'd need the night before, got up at 0400 ate, messed around at the house and was fueled at the start point and ready to roll at 0500. The ride to the first gas stop ended up being a little colder then I thought it was gonna be cause it got colder the farther south I got in TN, but it was all good.
Like I said I had this thing planned pretty good, and when I got to Birmingham AL, I was a little ahead of where I though I would be so I decided to stop at Heart Of Dixie HD and grad a poker chip since I had never been there before. I wasn't in any real hurry, just having a good time. Kinda glad I stopped cause I ended up finding some stuff on the 75% CLEARANCE rack, and I like a bargain. After I loaded up my unplanned score I got back on the road and headed to the next stop.
Made it to Montgomery AL got gas across the street from H-D of Montgomery. At this point the day was starting to heat up, so I chilled in the customer lounge and had a snake and a drink. And got another poker chip. On to the turnaround point.
I hit the turn around point at just a little before 1400 which was Mobile Bay H-D. Picked up another poker chip (can you see the pattern? LOL) and headed to grab some seafood, cause I'm not gonna be that close to the gulf and pass up a chance at some fresh seafood. Ate that up and it was time to head back home right at around 1500.
The ride was turning out to be easier then I thought it was gonna be. This bike eats up miles like you read about.
