I'm only 45, so wtf?

kinda nailed down a general flight path for my summer riding.



Since, I've been self employed for a while anyways, I will have to try and work some shows along the way.

for some of the further out west, I'm not sure, guy I was to share a booth with may be flaking on me.

Looks like a nice trip. Are you going to do this all in 1 trip or are you going to break it up in a few separate trips. When do you plan on starting the adventure?

Looks like a great ride, but it seems like you are planning on staying east of the Sierra Nevada Mtns, on 395?
It is far more scenic to go all the way to the CA coast and do hwy 1 (Pacific Coast Highway), or even zig-zag through some of the mountain passes.

Looks like "Q" is Reno, NV.

Are you leaving the West Coast open for now, pending more input from your Buddy, or are you planning to stay that far east? There's a lot of pretty country just a few more miles west from Reno.

I'll be with the Gypsy Tour group, starting in New Orleans, not sure what side of the Mississippi Chris has planned. riding in from FLA on 10th

New Orleans, July 11-13, possibly do whatever 10th and 11th, they're flex days, somewhat.

the east coast KY-NY-NH-WV-KY part done and over. I couldn't wait for SWII to get some miles on the bike. a good primer, because I learned
much about my bike and self, and limits. no not all at once.

I'll go outta my way to play on the 395

anything west of leClaire are bike shows, but I'm still working on filling in those gaps

looks like I'll have to skip MT beartooth rally (N) and maybe retreat home until Strugis.

it is, street vibrations sept 19-23, have 3 weeks between Sturgis and Reno


if anyone has any cool rallies in mind, I'm still filling in the blanks, or any temp position installing, or whatever, I was going to sell bling and audio,
I'm just trying to avoid installing satellite dishes all summer in KY.

I want a place in Kingman, that I know. Phoenix has the ladies, but too darn hot.

ultimately, Death Valley is on the list also. we'll see.

re: cali, lived there for 20+ years, may end up there in desert somewhere between events? or Havisu even.

But I'm serious, I'd like to figure out a seasonal trade for myself, thus the
ride, I don't get pension for 20 years and most of my stuff is paid off, I'm almost unemployable at this point.

open to ideas, any thoughts PM me.
