I'm sure this has probably been asked before, but when I did a search, nothing pulled up easily that I could see. Thanks :)
I'm a little late to the party but I figured I'd chime in! I wear custom made Dehner boots...the make boots primarily for people who ride horses but they have a great section devoted to motorcyclists and moto cops. I wear the Strap Tanker....they're not cheap, but because they're custom made, they fit and are super comfortable. A great investment!

They still look good.. And I hate to say how many miles of riding they have..
I have had them resoled 4 times..Leather bottoms only...

They are just showing a few cracks at the break of the foot..

For lack of anywhere else to say g'day ... a mate suggested ADVrider when told of my impending 2-month solo trip around the States. Signed on, lurked a bit, found some great info, and thought it time to post.

Currently riding an '09 Triumph Bonneville (great choice since I'm petite, but I'd love it even if I were 6 feet tall) ... its a second bike but will be the primary, still getting it kitted out and having both fun and frustration deciding on what mods to do.

Do a lot of solo day rides as well as have mates that I ride with, ride year-round, and do some camping rides.

... and that's the first post sorted. Cheers ADVriders!

Oh how awesome! two months solo around the states! You know, I never thought of doing something like that but I may just add it to my 'bucket' list. When is your trip?! Do you have the route planned out yet?

Welcome aboard!! I'm still kind of new around here, too, but have met a bunch of people and they are all just really great. If you're in New York at all, feel free to drop me a line!

WaywardRider, welcome to ADV and enjoy that tour around the country. It'll be a ride you'll cherish for a lifetime.

Since you are in the NW consider attending the Hells Canyon gathering. The link is in my sig line. It sure would be nice to have another gal join in on the fun.

Thanks! Planning to leave in mid-March and do a close approximation of a "Four Corners" ride. I've done a lot of solo travel but this will be the first one exclusively by motorcycle. Have only a rough route planned, general direction, a sites/places I want to see, but mostly going to work out specifics on the road. New York (state, not the city) is a likely ride-through, though!

You will have a wonderful time and you will meet lots and lots of Europeans, Canadians, even Australians -- they tour the USA by motorcycle, while USA folks don't, relatively speaking. Very strange... Are you going to get a SPOT tracker so family and friends and us can see your progress? Will you be camping or staying in hotels?

I love those motorcycles! I would love to have one, but for my touring bike, I'm dreaming of a Triumph Scrambler or a BMW GS 650, both far out of my price range (dang these long periods of unemployment).

My husband and I are planning a two-week trip from here outside of Portland Oregon to Yellowstone and back. We had a wonderful trip last year, from here up into Canada, down through Jasper and Banff and into Glacier National Park in the USA and back. We're hoping for something half as good!

It would be fun to get a group of women in Michigan together for a ride. Are there other riders that would be interested? Would it be dirt or street or some combination? Let me know what you think.
