Based on his 10 day allotment of time for this trip and 3000 mile goal. I would say, um hold on, 3000 divided by 10 is, umm, wait the 3 button on my calculator is broken I have to use the abacus, so if I move these beads there and those here then AhHa!!! Yes that's it! 300 mi/day.


Sounds like a lot of fun. Say hi to my fair city of Chicago for me and watch out for the yellow ones. They're all maniacs.

Wow. Props to you on going on such a long trip!

Do you have to make special stops for maintenance checks for the bike at any shops?
