        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.

          Congrats Rocky.
          I tried to rent a bike this time in Riyadh...dint work out,not as easy as in US! but next time i have to!

          Considering your wife probably dint have much pillion experiences before how well did she enjoy the trip?

          and BTW,yes all big bike have their clutch almost at the end,just like my FZ16 :P

            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.

            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 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.

            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.
            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.

              Great stuff! Congrats to you both for a nice ride! Great pics there as well!

              We have just got a Scalarider G4 pair set for us and it works phenomenally well inter-bike as well. Even at speeds of 150kmph we can hear each other (though anot as clearly as at speeds of 100 kmph or so). Look around for a pair, it will go a long way in creating a more memorable experience, even if its just between rider - pillion.

                  Fanatstic ride Ashwin...loved your pic of the bird with that lantern(correct me if Iam wrong)..

                  Great to know that even your better half supports and loves touring...
                  It is very tough to find some-one who is a good pillion...

                  looking forward for more pics...

                  PS: Is it necessary to get an US 2-wheeler license to ride a bike or an Indian or International license will do?

                      Thank you. Indian license will do in Texas. Different states has different rules.
                      And good to have International Driving Permit.

                        Fantastic narration, and lovely photos doing the vivid story telling alongside.

                        The red FZ sure looks stunning, with all the right curves at the right places!

                        Yamaha would do India a huge favour should they launch this bike officially here.

                            Thank you and yeah wish they bring this in. Its a great tool for touring.
                            And as per the Rental guy its much more refined and good for touring than 650R as per his/customers experience.

                            Yamaha - you can bring this one - are you guys hearing ?
