    Hey all. Over the summer I took my f800 around the country. I figured while I was at it Id document the adventure on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoe...ffRzm58-B13HCg and try to make a thing of it. It was a solo ride from Washington, DC to Seattle Washington by way of Nashville. Id love to share this journey with the forum and Id love to hear feedback about what people think.

  2. Thanks TheMeteor thanked for this post

    Well done! It's a lot of work to edit and narrate that much video.
    Concrete remains undefeated.

    What a great job and best of all you made it! So what is with the old fashioned cop cars in Andy Griffith’s home town? They probably still have some big interceptor engines.

    HAH. Maybe some of them. I think the old police cars are mostly for the benefit of tourists passing through. I think they even have a yearly festival called "Mayberry Days" to draw in the crowds.

    Yeah, tell me about it! There's a lot more to come. Things get more varied and interesting as I make the transition through the desert.

    I tried to find the name of the tune and artist for the beginning of Day 2. It does not appear to be one you listed as I searched those on YouTube. Please let me know what it is! Great videos!!
