Now that's a long trip. I don't think I'd want to try that on the CBR,
though I think my poor dead VFR would have been just fine for the trip.

*nod* I drove from Pennsylvania to Washington State in 3-1/2 days at
that age, and thought I was taking it easy. Drove 14 hours one day,
because I'd planned to stop in Rapid City SD but every hotel within 50
miles was full for a church convention, and there wasn't another hotel
between there and Gillette Wyoming.
Had a blast, actually. :)
