Summer trips

Discussion in 'Motorcycle Talk' started by beansbaxter, Jan 9, 2005.

  1. Anyone have any plans for summer motorcycle long trips? I am planning a few and well, if anyone else has the inclination or plans to go anywhere, then it would be cool to try to see if more of us could ride together.

    In March, heading to Reno, Vegas, and possibly Lake Havasu in AZ.

    In May, heading to California.

    In July, Laguna Seca.

    In August, I am planning a loop of a long trip, here are the stops:
    Portland, OR
    Reno, NV
    Las Vegas, NV
    Alburqurqe, NM
    Oklahoma City, OK
    Denver, CO
    Minneapolis, MN
    Chicago, IL
    Rapid City, SD (Sturgis)
    and back to Spokane...

    I'm still working out the details. This is my prelim ride because in Summer 2006 I am doing the four corners run (Guff and I are planning on riding to all four end corners of the US of about a long two month ride).
  2. Here is the route to kind of actual roads have been determines for obviously I dont want to take the long boring highway the entire way. Some of the time though, of course I will.

    And leaving Oklahoma can go in any particular order as long as I hit up all the cities mentioned. Havent figured out if I want to bring CA into the mix in the first part of the trip.

    This is the idea, so depending on funds and work and school, this is something I'd like to take the time to do:


  3. Might be in-how many days and when. I have 2 options. May or late August
  4. Have a bro in Pheonix, Utah and New Mexico and relatives in Wisconsin-Tempe actually fro a place to stay
  5. And SF which must have a bro and family and a good bud in Tahoe.

  7. Post whore!!

    I have friends at all those stops too, so it would be fun to add your friends into the mix. It would have to be in August, as I need to be in Minneapolis on August 20th for a wedding.

    I'll bring my Escort 8500 X50!!
  8. i might be in for that one. any ideas of the miles? day 12 looks like a long one. if i can get my radar detector mounted i'll bring it too.

    I like how the route completely avoids the "dirty south!" Hehehe. :lol:

  10. Having second thoughts I forsee lots of cops traveling with the cop magnet. :lol:

    these are divided into days or stops? that's insane if you plan on going what, 1500 miles in day. on a sportbike? that's crazy.
  12. It hasnt been divided, the numbers on the map are just for points of reference that I want to be for sure and go through. Distance between stops is not shown, as they are reasonable amounts with friends to stay at along the way.
  13. I predict many tickets-
  14. Cops are better than man-hole covers!
  15. Real funny- I will refrain from joining in your witless banter goatboy
