I THOUGHT you would like this picture of me in Gallup, New Mexico. The two braves are from the Navajo Nation. I decided to do the Run For The Wall, the largest and longest organised cross-country motorcycle run of its kind in the world, last May. It’s a 10-day journey from Los Angeles to Washington DC. In most states we were escorted by the local State Police who blocked all the traffic so we could ride through. You certainly felt like a VIP.
If anybody has plans of taking a motorcycle trip in the USA, I would highly recommend doing their first 10 days with this group. It’s not just for veterans, all are welcome, and you will see more of the USA and meet more friends than if you did six months travelling around by yourself.
The Americans are very keen to have Australians and New Zealanders join the trip and give a very warm welcome. For future info you can go on RFTW.org
