Thatโ€™s a proper chopper.

There once was a biker named Double-Fat. Who rode all over like a cafeined gnat.
When he once tried some Frenchy booze, His skills improved the more he wooz'd-

I think you are right. Pudding Bowl. Maine doesn't have a helmet law but I think this guy was playing it safe?

Yes. Because nothing is safer than pudding bowl helmets.

Luke is from Wyoming.  Been out there for a few months.  Spent a month or so in Florida with some relatives. On his way up to New York, then gonna head back home thru some Northern States.

The lights he added he said worked real good, he tried not to do a lot of night riding, but could hack it out no problem when he had to.  Said packing the gear was a never ending,
always changing endevor.  Has done a lot of camping, and is kinda looking foward to sleeping on his own bed again.

Hell of a nice guy.  Luke, out there, doing it๐Ÿ‘

I passed this guy on Route 66 in between the town 5 miles east of my town  When I got into my town I pulled over and waited just to see if he was still heading into town.
 A few minutes later I could see his headlight coming around the bend.
I had to snap a pic.

I like the handles on the side cases!

Nice seat pad. Doubles as part of the sleeping gear?

Here's to Luke for being out there on the road!

Hey, it don't get much more real than that!  Hats off to the guy.  
I used to live in a place where if the bike was 49cc or less, you could ride it anywhere but on an interstate highway.  No tags, no insurance. No license.
 Screw the man! Just ride!

Good shot FatFat. ๐Ÿ‘

Ps....I think they sell those at your local Tractor Supply.

When he rode past he gave me a wave and I wanted to stop him and ask how far he came from and how far he was going but he needed all the momentum he had to climb the next hill so I let him be and went on my way into the store.

Beings Route 66 runs through town I see a lot of bicycles and small cc bikes loaded with gear come through town but this is the first Iโ€™ve seen one of these little mini bikes coming through.

I think the smallest cc traveler I ever ran across was a Brit on a Honda 70 moped that had broken down and needed some assistance. Several weeks later he sent me an email telling me he made it to CA where he sold the moped and was getting ready to head back home.
He was trying to right a book about his adventure.

Probably going to a shift of work somewhere.
Maybe coming home from school.
Those stories get the Walt Whitman Wonder at America going, just as much as the overtly epic journeys.
