I recently had the good fortune of meeting an inmate (@dcwilcox) here that was slowly touring the country as his schedule allowed. He rode his bike from FL and stores it in a storage container and flew home. Every so often (2 or 3 times a year) he flies in and gets the bike and rides it around, then parks it and flies home. While there are a fair number of people that do this, meeting him got me thinking. My schedule constraints means I usually can only travel 6 days at a time. So 3 days out and back. Unless you're slabbing, you're not gonna get too far. Being self-employed, I can usually get away 4-6 weeks a year (if I watch my money) but seldom more than the 6 days at a stretch. So I've decided on the fly and ride thing leaving from the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX area after Christmas this year. But I need help in routing. I'm planning on heading West from here and visiting some of the desert regions while they're still cool. I've ridden a lot in New Mexico, so my sights are on further west. Can't be too cold or snowy, which rules out a lot of the mountain areas and pretty much keeps me in the southern half of Utah. Destination for this first leg might be Las Vegas or Southern California. I'd want to know the destination before I left so I could make all the arrangements before hand. Thoughts?
