    Hi Ladies! This is night 1 of our journey heading south to Baja! Thank goodness we’re trailering the bikes as it’s 35 degrees and raining here in northern Nevada tonight.

    Welcome to the fun.

    LittlePosum, Have a blast. I wish I was headed to Baja too. Maybe I'll be able to join in on the fun next year.

    I had planned to run the 2018 Scooter Cannonball for a third cannonball this year. The route has some rather adventurous sections (like part of the Burr Trail in Utah and gravel reservation roads in NM) for scooters but the opportunity has come up to go to Italy and so some riding there. So I'm looking into renting Vespas (after all why not to classic in their home country) for a week or two of touring there first of May.

    Riding the mean streets of Tampa Bay, Florida where snowbirds, 25% uninsured, and road-raging drivers make everything an adventure.

    Long, long time lurker, rare poster.

    November 4th, 2017 I hung up my helmet after riding off and on for 40+ years. I've had a bike in the garage for the last 16 years. I was a daily commuter but really enjoyed the road trips. I carry so many wonderful memories of sights, smells, encounters and I visit those memories often.

    After selling my bike I sat down and sobbed, hard, for about 45 minutes. IT WAS DIFFICULT. It's still difficult. I come to this forum to read the adventure stories and feel there are a few more rides I need to take. I kept my helmet. I kept my boots. I kept my gloves. I kept my jacket.

    There is a non-traditional [not a franchise] motorcycle rental company nearby. I've started planning a trip ......

    Planning and/or “dreaming” are the first steps to making your trip a reality.
    Time to make new moto memories.
    Please keep us updated!

    Reporting in from South Dakota. I posted a ride report a couple of years ago about my two years on the road from here to Ushuaia and rides closer to home after that. Wishing all my riding sisters happy travels.
