Amtrak Autotrain

We board the train in Sanford for an overnight trip to Lorton VA. Arrive in morning around 9 AM. Amtrak    $338 per person for roomette and motorcycle.  Check Amtrak for lower prices e.g. seat and motorcycle.

Recommend sharing a roomette which will enable you to  get a decent night's rest. Includes wine party, formal dinner with wine and morning breakfast.

You should be a good rider with at least 4000 miles in the last 12 months, familiar with tight switchbacks and comfortable riding a full day in the rain.

Helmets required(full face recommended), protective gear and rainwear. Waterproof boots highly recommended unless you like to spend a lot of time with a hair dryer. If you are wet or uncomfortable you will not joy the trip. Total trip 1875 miles

    Wet boots are not fun for 7 days. I learned this on my trip in Germany. Had my HD boots. Put two coats of Doc Blacks waterproof sealer. Lasted until the end of day 2. Spent the night with hair dryer and paper towels. Nice dry boots the day until 4:40 pm. Repeat, repeat, etc. Rained 8 days.
