Hi Guys, yes I was well aware of the song when I posted it, one of my favorites.
What do I think about riding over here, I love it, people are nice and friendly, just passing through the Carolinas and so many people wave as they pass in their pick ups or just sitting on the front porch.
It's possible to find much quieter roads here than in the UK and easier to find a place to pitch your tent by asking permission when motels are not available. Prefer motels these days!
Did the Southern Tier last year and wow what a diversity of cultures and landscape, loved every (almost) minute of it.
Shame we no longer speak the same language, having real trouble understanding some of the people here in SC. One conversation went - "Hey where y'all from" "UK" Shouting to her friends "He's riding from the Ukraine" reply "Ain't we at war with them or something" Its such jolly good fun.
However, I would always encourage you guys to come over and ride in the UK as it is very doable and providing you get the weather good fun.
