@ossobuco,
My goal was ten grand but I think I will surpass that amount. I know a few other restaurant owners in town that have said they will sponsor me.

@ossobuco,
I’ll give him ten dollars a mile if he promises not to fall off the bike.

@jcboy,
If you went shirtless, I bet you could sell some advertising space to some of those businesses... Wink

@Butrflynet,
He went around to a few businesses wearing the bike shorts, picked up a few sponsors and a few trolls as well.

@jcboy,
We're both only working half day today . Heading to Miami early to see my mother in law before the ride. I'm now close to eleven grand in donations!

@Rockhead,
They're lined up and ready to go, can't figure out how to upload photos from my phone so will upload them when we get home. So far the bike is still in an upright position.

@MMarciano,
He’s more then half way finished with the ride. I’m very proud he does this but we are beat tonight. We are in our hotel room for the evening. Antonio is beat, a little too much for him but he is glad to see Morgan this evening.

I somehow missed this thread! Wow, what a ride! Congratulations, Morgan!
You got quite a bit of money from sponsors, respect!
Nice pictures, Marco and thank you for letting us be part of this. How exciting!

Yeah, I can imagine that you're beat at night, especially when you're not used to riding a bike for a long time.

By the way: I laughed too at the remark of that poor chap being in the closet again. Too funny!
