Scooter Cannonball? I've had my eye on that but can't justify it this year.
Sounds like a blast going out... coming home, probably not so much.

including stops....by the time I got back home the long way, it was 2500+ in
three day....bike never missed a beat....total preparation for the ride
consisted of checking the oil level and making sure the tires were aired
up.....didn't even take a map....the PC is a tough, reliable, all-purpose bike
that tours about as well as anything else.....planning a 50CC, if I can block
out the time to do it.....Jacksonville Beach to San Diego under 50
hours.....will add 3.5 gallons of additional fuel capacity for that
one....bought the fuel fittings today and will order the tank as soon as I can
figure out how to disguise the expenditure......just came back from a two-week
tour in New Zealand and it was great....would have been even better if I had
been on my PC.....

lot of catch-up maintenance, just to bolster my confidence in the bike. This
weekend I had an opportunity to take it out on the open road for its first road
trip after getting the charging system all tuned up. Mostly open interstate with
75 mph limit. I found the PC to be absolutely amazing. It seemed to be most
happy at 80 mph. It would effortlessly run up past 90 during passing drills. I
think it could have ran all day at 80. The more I ride my "Rat'ole", the more
impressed I am with it. Even with a lot of wind out on the Colorado plains, she
did great. Mileage did suffer a bit. I averaged 46.3 mpg over the 200 mile round
trip. Even the grooved pavement did not seem to bother her. I sure am glad I
picked the PC as my first ride after being away for over 33 years. I am one
happy camper!
