The Blighty Boys Blog

I rarely recommend other blogs apart from the blog roll down below, there are too many that are equally good.  But a couple of smiling Brits have embarked on a long tour around the USA and after I followed a similar trip blog done by their fellow countryman Gary France a few years ago, I can't help but feel like the Blighty Boys,  John and Jon, will provide readers some good entertainment too. 

 My friend Simon over in England did a shorter US tour back in 2011 and was amazed to discover, as Gary France did, that Hollywood isn't America and what's in the news isn't typical America, it just stuff that happens in America. Way better things happen here -- good people, friendly people are still to be found between the headlines.  It will be very interesting to read about what the Blighty Boys discover.   John and Jon have already made landfall in the States, down Florida way, and will be headed west shortly.

I recommend you warm up some beer and cruise on over to The Blight Boys blog and say "Hi."

I've been flowing along as well. I am excited to see the USA through their eyes on their trip.

I agree. It'll be a grand adventure...and I'm following along.


Live Free. Ride Hard. Be Happy.

Thanks for the link, I didn't know about them, will definitely follow.
From the map looks like they will be missing a few spots that are not to be missed if you on a motorcycle.
