In 2008, Andrew Wheat decided to take a road trip from his home in central Michigan to New York City on his 1982 Yamaha Virago 920. With the goal of re-connecting to himself and nature, Andrew plotted a course that took him on backroads and through small towns. And, as one might expect, the lessons he learned along the way surprised him.
