My husband and I took this route and absolutely loved it! It was a two thumbs up. We left out on a Saturday morning and came home on Sunday morning and slipped into the church doors with our leathers on just in time for the service! We started out from Campbellsville, Kentucky, went to Paris and continued with this Route! Thank you so much. This was our first of hopefully many rides from Open Road Journey....and if all are as fun filled as this, we can't wait. As a matter of fact, I am looking for the next ride now! Thank you and God bless. Kick stands up!!!!
