I hate riding anywhere near NYC or PHL or DC
That's why it's I-84 to I-81 for me usually
You haven't seen the "Pray for me, I drive 81" stickers? Or 80 or 84. I guess 95 is beyond prayer.  EEK!

Nope.  84 (except in CT) is a dream and at least 81 hauls ass.  I watched a TT slam into a sedan in the lane next to me in stop & GO! traffic on 95.

Wish me luck.....looks like most of the remnants of Florence will be through here by late tonight.  I'll be heading out for my SS1000 at 6am tomorrow.  I can actually get there with only making on gas stop at the midpoint......just under 260 miles from home.  Google maps says 4 1/2 hours, but I'll take that as a challenge:)

All went well...caught some rain during the first 2 1/2 hours, but the weather the rest of the time made up for it.  Low temp this ride was 57, high was 89.  Made pretty good time,  considering I  spent 3 hours at my sister's house.  I also had a 20 mile inactive construction zone that lowered my speed by 10mph each way. 

Start time 0608 yesterday, end time 0029 today:)  Pretty easy with a comfy bike with good gas range.  I ended up topping off every 200 miles or so, seeing as how I rode through a lot of nowhere.  I was glad the boring stretches were on the other end. 

Night riding through the mountains may be my new favorite thing!  Zero traffic and it adds a bit of extra excitement doing mountain twisties in the dark:)  (I am very familiar with these roads and would not suggest this otherwise).

 I guess my new goal is to go 1,500 in 24 hours.  A challenge for next year!

Necro-posting and loving it. Re-reading this thread, I couldn't resist commenting on:

WOW. Having lived only in the Southwest part of the country my whole life I am reminded of how lucky quite a few of us are!!! No humidity either!!!
Having sampled SW roads, I am in utter envy of the chances to get from way over here to way over there at a goodly speed. Well, in the fall and spring. I'll pass on monsoon season, complete with dust storms and flash floods. Riding in snow is sooooo not my thing.

No humidity is an insidious thing. Sweat disappears in a hurry - gee, I'm not sweating, I guess I'm not dehydrating. So very wrong.

All of that said, I am seriously ready to get back there.

Well....we're waiting. Pronounced like the guy in Caddy Shack said it.
