Is it an Adventure when riding mostly hard surfaced roads on a 10,000 mile trip? Yes........if youre 75 years old and riding solo. Thats just my humble opinion. The planned route is departing from Floridas Space Coast on July 4th and traveling west to southern AZ to ride the Coronado Trail from Clifton northbound. I rode it southbound last year...it will be even better going north and uphill. On the way I cant pass up the road rated #1 by Motorcycle Roads. com, the Twisted Sisters Ranch Roads in West Texas http://www.motorcycleroads.com/best/?s=75. Any inmate feedback on this choice? Traveling north through Four Corners Ill meander along the Rockies until heading west towards Vernal, UT, and then northwest to the BMW Rally in Salem, OR. Then its the Washington State BMW Rally the next weekend in Republic, WA. I have a couple of weeks to kill before the BeeCee Beemers Rally in Nakusp, BC, and thats when I plan to shoot up to Yellowknife. Northwest Territory will be the crown jewel of my little states and provinces maps. By coloring it in, I will have completed my motorcycle tour of all the continental US states and Canadian provinces (except Nunavut, which to my understanding, does not have any roads leading up to it). Leading up to this trip I completed the Iron Butt Associations National Parks Tour Master Traveler GOLD Award (parks in all the states including Alaska) and then did a circumnavigation of the United States by traveling up to Newfoundland, across Canada to Victoria, BC, then down the coast to San Diego, across the southern border and Gulf Coast to Key West, and back home. This thread documents that trip http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=359662. For this upcoming trip the following sites will be useful: this current thread will include the daily (when feasible) Ride Report and pictures; my real time position reports every ten minutes will be available once I start my trip through my SPOT messenger beacon for a limited time at http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=0Ylg9Im6Yinx4J8Qo2RCVL85IXzZokDvh and my more permanent track log is available indefinitely at https://spotwalla.com/tripViewer.php?id=72dc540909b2ddf1f This link did not get activated until I was stopped after the first day's ride.
