USA ROAD TRIP, DAY 2

12 settembre 2012 | News

by Gary Inman

Day 2

These organised trips can be strange. Like the TV show Big Brother, you’re forced to spend time with people you don’t know. And like Big Brother, some of the people involved exaggerate their characters when they’re out of their normal surroundings. This group vary from a young, newly married couple, who are treating the road trip as a honeymoon, to a pensioner who is on tour, on a pair of Suzukis, with his 40-odd year old son.

As virtually every morning starts early, I was re-packing the bike at 6.30, before leaving for Niagara Falls on the Canadian border.

Riding over the Niagara Thruway Bridge the mist rising from the waterfalls could been seen from over 4km away. Today it rises till it makes it’s own cloud.

I can’t resist a trip on one of the Maids of the Mist, the boats that takes a hundred tourists at a time to be soaked by the Falls. The trip is designed to see as many of the iconic sites of the USA as possible in three weeks. It means lots of miles, but countless photo opportunities. What is yet to be discovered is how fulfilling seeing everything at 120kph can be.

Then the ride continues, along Lake Erie, into Pennsylvania and onto the outskirts of Cleveland, Ohio for the night. Tomorrow is a dreaded transit day.
