Wow! Enjoy your ride. It is quite an accomplishment. Junction, Texas seems to be a popular spot to sleep for a few hours during the cc ride.

Ride safe!

I'll break from tradition here and say "Don't Post Pictures" as it will just eat up time. Well, maybe one to start and the finish one. :deal:

Care to post your route and estimated times to marks? Swinging through Texas? Maybe some of us could wave as you go by!

I8 > I10 > I12 > I10> 95 > 202 > A1A

The link in my first post will let you see where I am with a 10-20 min lag time.

Leaving SD tonight at 0000 PST and hope to be in a hotel in Beaumont by 0200 Sunday.

It was mainly in the 100s riding from PHX to SD through the desert last night and today's highs along the same route will be 110-115 so even at 3 am it's still going to be quite warm which really sucks the "I wanna ride" spirit out of you.

Good luck and maintain concentration. I don't have to tell you this but just did :wave:

Much confusion on "50cc", better it "CC50", AS IN COAST TO COAST IN 50.

Yep. 2,360 from first receipt to the last receipt. https://goo.gl/maps/QqEW7XBtWxG2

And then I need to find a safe beach access to gather my Atlantic ocean sand/water, and then another 30 minute ride to meet the missus at a hotel by the airport.

First task is complete. Sand and water from the Pacific.

Last big meal has been eaten. From here on it will be jerky, bananas, Clif bars, trail mix, etc.

Now it's time for about 5 hours of sleep and then hit the road. Follow along if you like. :rider:
