The end of the journey? I would think not. It’s just time to give the bike a rest, maybe a bath and some new shoes. You know – it would be a good idea if I took a bath, also. My only real thought on Friday was to make it home. The last day of any trip is always the most dangerous day. My thoughts were going to change soon. The plan was to stop in Newnan, Georgia at Great South Harley Davidson and meet a few friends to ride back to Columbus. A few friends turned into seventeen bikes in all. It was great to see everyone. We pulled out from the shop at 4:30 p.m. and we headed for Columbus. They even let me lead the pack – which is a big honor – ok, not really. You are the one who gets the blame if you make a wrong turn or you go too fast or too slow or dirt gets in someone’s eye. They really don’t get mad but they sure will pick on you. You have to have thick skin or wear leather. I have both and I make lots of wrong turns. I’m not really lost – the GPS always tells me where I am.
