    I'm riding my BMW F GS 650 next month from Denver CO to Wisconsin along the great Lakes down to FL.
    I have to be in Miami the last week of June. So anybody who likes to join me some off the way would be spectacular !
    I'm 39 years old female and originally from Germany.
    Also anyone who can let me pitch a tent along the way would be awesome !

    If you can post a proposed route and some expected dates to be in certain areas perhaps some folks will hook up and ride with you at least part of the route. Have fun and save travels!!

    Absolutely. Let us know, I can certainly host you in Mn (more mid mn) if you are coming this way.

    We're a friendly bunch around here, even that lot in Wi are good peeps.

    Yup, as one of the Wisconsin "lot"...

    I could also host you if you end up near Fond du Lac, WI.

    Depending on when or where you end up....
    If it is near us folks over here we could probably arrange a meet and greet around your visit also?

    See what I mean? Lovely peeps.

    The Mn meet and greet will be better than the Wi one, but that Wi lot make a really good effort. :nod

    Set aside money in your budget to stay in a motel once you get to Florida. In late June, it's too hot and buggy to stay in a tent.

    I'd offer a place, but:
    a) I'm only two hours from your destination, and
    b) In-laws might still be visiting (our son is about to graduate from high school and my wife's family is visiting).

    It'll be a fun ride!

    Wish I could join you but work obligations. We do have a spare room and a garage full of tools on the MN/WI border. Good luck and PM if you need anything.

    I just got a call from Free Spirit who is stranded on Hwy 132 in Altoona, AL. Her electric shifter is causing all sorts of problems with the bike. She is currently waiting on a tow truck and is getting towed to the Honda dealer in Gadsden. Please pm me or her for contact details.
