I flew a  2006  Breva 750 from UK to Toronto in 2007. Got it cheap due to being a last yrs model.
Anyway,  I think I got  trashed in the  new fangled  photo bucket  rules  about  havin to pay 300 quid a year  to use  third party sites.
Bugger  that !  
  Sorry  but  I did  have    freewebs :  A Long ride in America site, but some say its no longer  working.
However . motoguzziriders.com  does  seem to still work

I did an iron Butt from the  Elmore Turnpike  Entrance, to Evanston Wyoming, then tried   twice to do an IBA   1600  insanity .

First  time failed  due to Nebraska closing  down  one side of I 80 for  repairs, so the interstate was only one lane in each direction, so top speed  was about  45 mph.  Ok I still did  1620 miles, but it  took  27 hrs  12 mins.
Second Insanity 1600  got stopped by State  Troopers, ordering  everyone off the  I 80  due to an approaching  dangerous  hail storm ! 
 I just managed to get a motel and the bike under cover  before  hens  egg sized  hail started  dropping  out of the sky !

All Fun & Games, isn,t it  ?
