I don't understand the antagonism nor the constant disparagement of those of us who enjoy the staccato sound of the Harley V-twin or the relaxed pace of a long ride on a so-called "cruiser" or touring bike.

As far as I'm concerned, it's ALL GOOD.

Relax and enjoy the adventure, no matter what flavor you like!
I am not disparaging Harleys by any means, I was intending to stand up for those that ride Harleys. I took the OP as a Harley-disparaging shit-disturber post. I guess I took it wrong. I was trying to say if he was bitching about no Harley ride reports, then he's looking in a place where he probably wouldn't find many to begin with.

Paul, I'd like to play, but I can only post a pic or two or three here and there, as time permits, instead of an entire "mini" RR - do you mind this approach in your thread?

While I await your reply, the shot above is of my '06 Road King, looking down over Isabella Lake and the Kern River Valley from the legendary "Lion's Trail" in south-central California. The photo was taken the day after I bought the bike brandy-new and minty fresh.

It now has 38k+ showing on the clock, has been around the country a bit, and presently resides in southwest Virginia.

In the photo, just behind the saddlebag is the town of Bodfish, California, home of legendary adventure rider Dave Barr. We're looking due north in the shot. Kernville is at the far end of the lake, and is considered the gateway to the southern Sierras. The road visible running diagonally thru the photo is Highway 178. Ride it eastbound for a few hours and Death Valley is your reward.

Best regards,
FF

(I GUESS YOU DID, Counselor! How anyone could misread and misinterpret the tone of my original post to read it as "Harley-disparaging, s**t-distubing" is completely beyond me! I've read it all about 15 times over and I am convinced your comments above are nothing other than a feeble attempt at back-pedalling to avert self-embarassment ... we are now done with this......have a nice day) I was trying to say if he was bitching about no Harley ride reports, then he's looking in a place where he probably wouldn't find many to begin with.

Harleys' get around

My buddy on a V Strom and me on my EGC toured the US and Canada - over 17000 km in 30 days. the RR is here
Some of the pics really enjoyed are below:
The start of the trip
The bikes at Ironhorse Motorcycle resort

Oregon

Bikes at Lava fields Or.


So the adventure is what you make it. Matters less what you ride or how far you go.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Ride Reports has zero tolerance for asshat comments such as the ones posted by Savoir Faire and Disco Stu. Both are on vacation for 10 days and the posts have been punted to Head Explody.

Read the rules and abide by them. Use the BlameMaddbrit to report offending posts.

GREAT report, that's what it's all about!

Round-I-Go, I like to look at our two great lands like this : you guys have got 50 states - we've got 6 and a territory. Obviously not to scale but our lap around the block looked something like this. A lot of the guys over here refer to a lap around the block as doing the continent - around 17,000k.



Sure would love the opportunity to also ride your roads (and for Disco Stu "trails") one day !

I also ride a KTM. I think GB made a good call, stick to the rules guys Some other great bike shots here too,keep them coming gents.

Out of about 40 bikes owned, I've had 3 Harleys. They all looked about like this (my last Harley that I sold this year...)


They make great touring bikes. You can put a sleeping bag and tent strapped to the ape hangers and it makes a sort of fairing against the wind/rain. Plenty of room for clothes and bath kit in the little saddle bags. Just hit the road.

I've loved my beemers and hondas but I will say that none of my Harleys gave me any problems. I rode the first one for 50,000 some odd miles and just changed the oil. The second had about 40,000 on it and I had to do the clutch, but that seemed to be a week spot in the 89. The third one was rebuilt when I got it and only say about 10,000 miles...but that simple motor seems to just keep chuggin...

I suppose most of my Harley miles were in California, but I did ride that second one across country once. Every few years I get the hankerin to buy a Harley again...

Since 2002 I have been in many many places on my Harley[s]

I keep trading them in as they get better and better.

40/48 states. 81,000 miles and counting. This year I covered 8 states & 10,000 miles of the continental US on my 09 Ultra Classic. Last week [one day] I rode 347.5 miles thru western NY and parts of northern PA. I ride gravel roads as well as paved roads.

I suppose I could share more but i am too busy riding to type.

Rocker, this is great! On your map it looks like I live just about 100 miles north of Perth, also known as San Diego.
... come visit sometime (and mebbe I'll do the same, in reverse)

A lap around the block ... Hmmm, I'll remember to use that one on my wife! ... HA!
