Forrest and I would like to send out a special thanks to Goodfastncheap and his beautiful wife for their hugely generous gesture of putting us up in their place and his wife for making dinner and then breakfast. Wow! Then going for a spirited ride after through Iowa with Upncmmr before leaving for Jackson, Wyoming.
As if that wasn't enough they drove up to meet us on return journey so we wouldn't have to add more mileage and time to return trip. His fabulous wife made up a smorgasborg. The best damned chocolate chip cookies EVER.
Forrest was so happy you offered up your fuzzy, exotic fuzzy balls.

Kudos to Forrest and Saxjonz for traveling all the way from their home turf of Chicago in order to keep the flag moving. GoodFastNCheap and everybody in the West deserve a good amount of applause as well. The KZ's are proving their reliability. You guys are class acts on classic bikes ;)


You are absolutely correct. I'm very fortunate to have such great riding terrain. I made the KZ1000 work had this weekend. She did great but frame gussets are now a higher priority.

I see you posted the picture of the outhouse we had to use while we stayed in Wyoming. The Northwest is rough ;)

Sax, you gave me a renewed vigor to meet up with you! Hell of an accomplishment on your part man! I'll try to do something in the next week or two before I put my turbo on e-bay.

Peter, I never read what your Kansas route was. I'm curious what highway you took that shot on.

Sorry I couldn't get it together to help but I'm glad it moved. Good on you guys!

My KZ Rider North American Flag Relay Ride: Day One 7-24-13

We began our Epic Relay Leg within a Leg by travelling via truck & trailer to Bellevue, NE. Peter aka goodfastncheap and his lovely wife were the perfect hosts for the beginning of our KZR Relay Road Trip. Click on the thumbnail below for picture and detail.

Nate, I just went straight south on 73/75. Pic is just north of Sabetha, KS. And just 'cause we didn't get together at this point of the relay doesn't mean we can't meet up sometime! I love that part of the country down there, and maybe jason from down south of you can join us. Like Forrest has been saying, there's a whole lot more to it than moving the flag -- there are a whole lot of great people to meet that ride and maintain these vintage KZ's!
