Day Two - Miles to Go Before We Rest
Bowling Green Travel Blog› entry 2 of 12 › view all entries
All of us agreed to get an early start on Saturday morning. The weather was cooperating and we needed to take advantage of our good fortune. A very uneventful day. Traveling on the busy interstate is not our preferred route, but we didn't have a choice. Making miles was our main objective so we rode tank to tank, not stopping anywhere inbetween. One tank of gas usually stretches to 200 miles at speeds of 75 MPH and up, so we were stopping about every three hours. Riding straddle of a big motorcycle for three hours straight causes the legs to get stiff. We all looked like refugees from the local nursing home when we tried to dismount and walk.
After twelve hours of hard riding, we started looking for a place to spend the night. We had made it all the way to Erie, Pennsylvania, and we were tired to the bone. We asked for suggestions for dinner, and the nice lady working the desk at our hotel told us about one of the local seafood restaurants down by Lake Erie. We weren't only tired, but we were hungry. It was Saturday night and we figured we would be fighting a crowd at the restaurant, but it was getting close to 9 p.m. and the crowd had thinned out by the time we arrived. We all enjoyed our dinner as we talked about where we were going and what we were going to see. It's just such fun to travel and share good times with friends.
