Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Another fine diary. I look forward to seeing more of your photos. I've done a couple of what I call long runs on motorbike, two or three hundred miles, and I was exhausted at the end of 'em. Mind you, that was on a 550, rather than a 1400 (?) so the vibration is another thing. But I still can't imagine 1700 miles on a bike

The first bit is the hardest, once you get into the rythym it becomes oddly comforting, especially in the west where one does not have to spend much time fighting traffic.  My first "big" bike I had in California was a Honda 550 4cyl.  I went all over the state on the at bike and loved it.  In fact, I picked up a used 55o Nighthawk a few years ago for my Partner to learn to ride.  She loves it.
