  Fourteen days from now, our trip begins. Packing a motorcycle for a serious road trip can be somewhat daunting. What to bring? Clothes, tools, maps, locks, rain gear, leathers, gloves, etc.
Everyone has their own wants and needs on the road, so what to bring depends on the individual, I'm not gonna bore you with my list, but lets just say... it's extensive.

                Took a look down a westbound road, right away I made my choice

 We've made a collective decision to travel west on Route 20, it's an east–west highway. As the "0" in its route number implies, US 20 is a coast-to-coast route. Spanning 3,365 miles, it is the Longest road in the United States, and the route closely parallels Interstate 90. We'll be traveling roughly 1800 miles of this route to get to Sturgis, South Dakota. Throw in some Interstate Highways every now and then, some back roads as well, depending on how our timing goes, and you have the makings for an epic road trip.

                    Headed out to my big two wheeler, I was tired of my own voice

Motorcycles for this venture into the great Midwest are all Harley Davidson. Lets be honest, you wouldn't want to ride a Ninja, or a GSXR 1800 miles would you? I mean, I've got nothing against the sport bikes..or the people that ride them, but this trip demands a laid back approach to motorcycling, so, with that said, we'll be riding ape hanger'd, loud, obnoxious, Milwaukee powered V-twins. Bikes include a 06' Dyna, a 00' Nightrain, and a Suicide Shifted 98' Heritage. No big tour bikes on this trip, which we'll no doubt regret later on.  
                Took a bead on the Northern Plains and just rolled that power on 
Heading west on US 20 to Buffalo NY for day one, approximately 400 miles to Niagara Falls, and the Anchor Bar are to be our first destinations The Anchor Bar's claim to fame is that it is the birthplace of chicken wings, known outside the Buffalo area as Buffalo Wings. The restaurant was initially established in 1935. Teressa Bellissimo is credited with the creation of the dish when she fried some wings and covered them in a hot sauce.

Stay tuned, more up-dates will follow
