    Guys, I hate to say it; but this hack is crazy. I'll bet dix to dollars that he's never even sat on a ztr before. He's a pizza boy for goodness sakes. Do you know how much gas money alone it would take to do what he is pipe dreaming to do...Lets not forget about hotel,maint, and food expenses, too. It would cost upwards of 200,000 to make a voyage like this. Don't pay him anymore attention- IT's just a waste of time.

    Yeah I gotta agree, I am crazy, but at least its my crazy dream:laugh: As for pizza boy, been many things including owning a trucking company, and a taxi service, also operated all kinds of equipment including a ztr, yeah I deliver pizza's at the moment but in 63 days I will be following my dream. I hope you will follow your dream whatever it might be! As for costs, will not go into my finances, but rest assured this ride will not only happen, but it will raise a considerable amount for two very worthwhile charities. I truly hope that as I travel across this fine country of ours I will meet you so I can shake your hand. For as they say in Missouri "Show Me", and when I shake your hand you will be shown. Thank you for being a skeptic as I need those also.

    Thanks Travlndude----

    You're going to need some type of steering dampers on the front wheels to stop them from shaking back and forth. Especially if you want to travel at the fastest speed because the tires will wear out very quickly on pavement. I'm sure Dixie is already thinking of these types of problems, they aren't going to put their name and money into something that doesn't work.
    Get a gel seat from a wheelchair, you azz will thank you later. Frog togs and a full mororcyle hement will help you during bad weather. Wind will also be a concern so the frog togs will help there too. Maybe a fan blowing cool air would be nice.
    Good luck.

    I'm thinking those gas tanks are really just beer kegs, and you are one thirsty guy. Ya on your way around the continent could you just stop by my place and cut my lawn, I'll refill one of those tanks for ya.

    The only way he'll be coming through your area is if you have a residence in LALA LAND! There is no way that some average person would have the funds or funding to make a trip like this.

    Yeah, I will be coming through Detroit, it will probably be the early part of April although at this point in time I couldn't give you a accurate date. I will be headed towards northern Michigan, as I want to stop for a night in my home town.
    Now what would you be refilling it with? Beer or Propane. Depending on which I might take you up on that offer. lol
    As I said before when I come through Chattanooga I want to shake your hand and prove Chattanooga isn't in Tennessee, but actually in Missouri the show me state. lol Besides I heard Chattanooga was right next to LALA land. Sceptics, ya gotta luv em.
