Today Erika crossed the 100,000km mark in 8.5 years and joined a relatively small group of riders. :D

With out the support, assistance, suggestions, knowledge, and friends I’ve made along the way I could not have made it - I can’t thank everyone enough. :bow:

It has been, and will continue to be, an adventure.

My sentiments are heartfelt. Without Sovietsteeds I would either be out $$$$ over easy, simple fixes or own a 750lb paperweight :lol:

Awesome!!! Congrats, Dave ...

Now that Erika is broken in, where and when is the next Big Ride?

How about a Civil War battlefield ride to Charleston for beaches and Low Country seafood?
