my '94 Dyna Wide Glide...named missy

ok...so im here @ home in chicago...LONGING to get started on my journey...but the doc says im not even allowed to SIT on the damn bike until after 6 weeks

buying the bike was the easiest part of this whole thing...i went into Calumet Harley Davidson in Munster, Indiana...and saw this beautiful 1994 Dyna Wide Glide...and just had to have her...picked her up for a pretty penny...$11,000 american...but so far...its been worth every penny...

but i figure this surgery needed to get done...im not going to go on a long trip still sick from Ulcerative Colitis and have to worry about what i eat...where bathrooms are and so on and so forth...i want to be completely free spirited...not worry about a thang, baby!

i also figure that this down time will give me a chance to raise money...get my first book finished...and plan my second one...as well as seriously think about my routes...im trying to avoid the fast paced life of the express ways as much as possible...that would rush me and thats not the point of the trip...

(what is the point of the trip?)

...well, the point of the trip is to find that part of me i lost while being sick for 5 years...i believe firmly that its out there somewhere...waiting with it's thumb out ready to hitch a ride...all i have to do is find it...and thats exactly what im going to do.

Catch ya on the flip side ;)
