Say hello to BMWJustin. I ride a MegaMoto and frequent the BMW MegaMoto thread in the Road Warriors forum. Say hi to Pete. He rides a Road King and is not on this forum. Pete, some guys we used to fly with, and myself had planned to ride to Sturgis last summer for "the Rallye". Long story short, nothing happened. No one went. I had been dreaming of riding the Oregon and California coast via motorcycle for years. I've driven a majority of the coast in a cage, but never motorcycle. I tried a few years ago, but never even got close to where I wanted to go. So a couple weeks after the failed attempt to get to South Dakota, I texted Pete telling him I thought it would be a lot of fun to ride the PCH. He agreed. From that point, planning had begun. Due to the fact that I started going back to college, we would have to wait until after the spring semester was over. As riders know, nine months is a long time to wait for your dream ride (one of them...). Throughout school, I'd sit on the iPhone checking every possible route to make it as interesting as possible. I had also began purchasing some much needed gear that I didn't have yet. After lots of talks with Mrs. BMWJustin, we agreed that I could be out for eight days. I know, it's more than a week, but the first and last days were bombing up the highways to make up mileage. The plan was simple. Ride from Las Vegas, NV, up to McMinnville, OR to see the Spruce Goose (and the other 80+ aircraft there). Then we'd ride south along the coast all the way to Santa Barbara. Lastly, we'd part ways and head home.
