The Germans made it.

In three days, I'll be embarking on this motorcycle trip with a few friends:

http://www.soundrider.com/archive/rides/cascade_loop.htm

Streets and Trips says the route is around 400 miles. Whew! That'll be the longest ride I've ever done on two wheels by far. I'm a little worried about the BMW being up for it, but I'm sure it is. It's a BMW. And I changed the oil. Wish me luck!

I'm excited for the ride. It'll be nice to just take a nice leisurly highway ride on my bike, and take in whatever beauty is out there as I buzz by, doing my part for global warming (think of it as a tribute to Ronnie). We're staying the night in some little town in the middle of nowhere, which should be pretty interesting. Gooood times.

I hope my bum holds up.

I would just say, "take it easy." That shit is old, and she probably won't like getting ripped up at 75 for hours and hours. Keep it around 55-60 and I think you'll be fine.

Roger that. I think the pace for this ride is gonna be 55-60 anyway, with plenty of breaks, so it should be all good.
