Riding season in the midwurst is a few weeks away, but I'm getting the itch for one more long ride. A few years back I rode to Nova Scotia, over three weeks of fun. Last year I told Nancy and most likely didn't have one more trip in me, but as I'm starting to return to feeling better, a trip out west or maybe to the Icefield Parkway seems to be attracting me in that direction. Other than a trip to Redmond for a MOA rally, I've not ridden in the PNW and never ridden in N. California so there is a lot from which to choose.

I keep a list of potential rallies and events on the calendar. Last year I made it to FART. Hopefully this year will not be a repeat.

What places have you always wanted to experience on a bike but, for one reason or another, haven't made it?

(PS to Mod, if this isn't the correct forum, please move. Thanks.)

I haven't had too many Beemers, I just don't have enough time.

Shipping to San Diego (late May) and riding back to MA. Will do a deep south route. Set out to do this two years back, but the Texas floods dictated otherwise. Had to take a more central USA route. I just love starting on one coast and working my way back to the other coast. This past September, I was ready to set sail for a trip- either northern FL or Nova Scotia. Last minute decision had me headed to FL and back...no regrets, but Nova Scotia is definitely on my list. The ride to Nova Scotia is only a one day trip. Soon enough.

If all goes well, START, the UN, FART, and fall Torrey.

Normally I try to get in a New Years Day ride, but not this year. 17° at dawn, 29° at this moment. If it gets above 32° today, I may still give it a try.

At the moment, I'm enjoying sitting in front of a fireplace.

Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.

I like to do that when I can, so if the bike starts I'll be going out later today. Of course, it's a balmy, sunny 35, and I'm not saying I'll be out for long.... wink


Bud - PEI and the northeast of Canada sounds like a great ride, but if you do head NW instead of NE, we'd be happy to see you (if we're still here!).



*insert witty remark here*

I’m going to try and make spring Torrey, so that I Cam finally meet some of you. Maybe a February or March trip to Big Bend NP, a few Arkansas weekends, and I’m going to shoot for a fall New England trip.
