Tailwinds at 35,000 Feet
I’m in Virginia for a week visiting with family for the holidays and doing some preparation work for our September 2011 ride on Washington, DC for prostate cancer awareness.
I flew on Virgin America, my favorite airline, and watched our flight path on the seat monitor. As we flew east, I thought back over my motorcycle ride last summer across the US and back – many wonderful memories there and the book is coming.
It took me 24 days to travel from Manhattan Beach to Washington, DC on my Harley Low Ride and only a bit over 4 hours on Virgin with the jet stream tailwind, but what a great time I had wresting “Dave” through the winds of the high plains.
Ride with Me Next September
September 2011 will be the first Prostate Cancer Pony Express ride to our nation’s capitol for prostate cancer awareness. To be part of the event, visit our event blog at BlackTireAffairs.com.
