This Ride Report (RR) chronicles my spring 2011 trip from the US Northwest to the Southwest and parts in between. I have enjoyed following many of you over the last year or two as I started having to time to ride once again. I have learned from you all and spent countless hours reading your adventures. Thought I would try my hand at a ride report, but only if I could add some value to the overall community. That is TBD but I will give it a try. Come along for the ride!
