The Journey Begins ~ Driving Classic

After virtually two years of laborious work, affected person ready and greater than a pair units of busted knuckles, my cross nation journey has lastly begun!  Our place to begin was Emerald Isle, North Carolina and with waves crashing behind us we headed west on a sunny Saturday morning.

I am driving a blue 1933 Harley-Davidson VL and Tim is astride the crimson 1934 Harley-Davidson VLD. The “D” in VLD denotes a slight efficiency improve that makes use of a Y-shaped consumption manifold as an alternative of the usual T-shaped manifold used on the VL fashions.  My ’33 truly has VLD cylinders, which isn’t appropriate, however each bit of additional horsepower helps on these outdated machines.

Our route immediately took us by way of jap North Carolina and on into the central a part of the state.  Since my home occurred to be on the best way, we determined to forgo tenting for another night time and stayed at my home for the night time.  This additionally gave us quick access to instruments and an opportunity to go over the bikes another time earlier than actually setting off throughout the nation.

The bikes made the 170 miles from the coast to my dwelling with out incident. Let’s simply hope the remaining 3500 miles go as clean.
