    @Rockkyyy: First of Wish you a happy married life.
    Second. The road in fog is just mind blowing. <applause>

    The Fz looks so beautiful. How much was the rent..? Were you given spare kits also..?

    In one pic, there was another couple in another bike. Can you tell what bike it is..? (my crude guess MT).

    Do shower us with some more pics.

    The greenery and the mist remind me of my hometown-Sakaleshpur in Karnataka.
    The photos are very good. Hope, your ride on FZ6 was exciting. The bike you are talking about is a Harley Davidson. Waiting for more, mate.

    Thumbs up Tremendous

    Awesome man. It was great you see that your partner never curses for biking rather she enjoyed with as a pillion. Riding a bike for 1000 miles, that too with your dear to whom you want share all in your life.
    Hope you had the pleasures at a time.
    I wish my girl should read this thread.

    Have a dream- Believe in it and work towards it. It happens.

    Congrats on many fronts to you. The marriage, the ride etc. Also congrats to your wife on her maiden trip. I know how it feels to ride with your better half after my wife also did her maiden trip in Europe. Maybe next time try a bike with a top box, so you get additional storage space and wife will have a back support and will be more reassuring for her. Also worth investing in a not too expensive Chatterbox HJC50 intercom (or if you wish a more expensive bluetooth set)- makes it more enjoyable when you can constantly converse with your partner on the ride.

    True, the guys at ADV are just amazing when it comes to guidance. Ride safe & wish you many many more miles of safe & enjoyable riding.
    Thank you Chetta - I sat on a GS - it was took big on me - but I can ride. But didnt want to take that big risk on a maiden ride. She was pretty much comfortable - didnt complain even though she had to holdthe tent and sleeping bag. Nextime will try to take a bigger bike - this was more of a trial run to how how is touring in US. Yeah intercom is a nice idea.

    The other bike is HD. With bike they had given a puncture kit and road side assistance no in case of any issues. See sporty rentals online.

    From ZMA to FZ6 - the excitement is much more. But I some how felt refinement is not that great.

    Yeah here its quite easy , your Indian license and a Plastic Card is good enough to get a bike. I have toured on FZ16 - but this is much lesser than that.
