@SomeGuyRides, I have absolutely adored every moment of the trip. Even your ramblings. Even when the media mod broke (twice). My girlfriend has been wondering who the hell this "Ang" person is that I keep laughing about and will watch for 2h straight, even though all the ramblings. The preview looks even funnier in the context of having watched almost all of the series so far and I love that you took the effort and time to make that a thing. To say I am in awe of Johnny Pow is also an understatement. Not just his riding skills - you don't make friends like that every day and he definitely made the series even more enjoyable to me. Running Mission Control at the start of the series also makes me think of how I would want to run my own long distance trip with someone that I could trust like that.

As someone waiting for the bike still and thinking "how am I going to get it back from really far away?!" this series was perfect in setting my expectations for what I think I'll run into and need to do. No interstate for sure. No expectations of 300 mi days. Also no California Pass and yes to putting my ass's caller ID on the blocked callers list.

Thanks for taking the time to show the videos as you have. I've watched a few TAT videos and these are easily my favorites, but most of all I think I got a good idea of what to expect when I finally get that dealer call saying the bike is arriving and they need me to come finish the paperwork.

Thanks for the kind words! Really glad you've enjoyed it - I can't believe the last one posts soon. Crazy. You're going to have an awesome trip!

@SomeGuyRides - I've only had one question the entire video series.

RE: California Pass and Engineer Pass, if you had known it was going to be that hard, is there any engineering solution you could have made just for that section? Like dropping the front sprocket down one tooth to handle the additional incline?
