Read about that store! So much to see on this trip. What time do guys like to get moving? I don't have set routes and take off time, but if leaving with others, we should have a round up time and go from there. It is hard for me to say when and where I am going day to day, but should we make a small group of distance riders? I ride tank to tank and about 5-9 over the speed limit when alone. 10 minutes gas stops and 30 minute food at noon and evening usually. I change my ways riding with others and let them set the pace so I know what they handle. With my job, I am waking up around 4:30am and toss and turn after that. Any thoughts of who would like to form this kind of ride group? I would say kickstands up no later than 7am??? Open to ideas and thoughts. So many people, so many styles, so many roads! Hard to tell also when someone wants to hit a look out point or just suck it in as you travel by. I handlebar mount a camera and catch what I can for others. Film just isn't the same as seeing it for yourself is my thoughts.
More about me....
I will travel ch 7 on CB. This trip will be with a hand held mic, but will listen over sound system. (Full face helmet has mic, but not wearing that one on this trip.)
I am very good about watching my mirrors and not leaving someone behind. Not many get to far ahead of me, but some of you locals may be able too. I don't let big distance form between people, so know I am just up ahead waiting for ya if something did happen like a light. I am learning to crank u turns now, so I might even come back for ya if traffic allows.
Let me know if you want to join me Monday morning and hit someplace 2-3 hours out and enjoy my listed runs and other roads on way back. Planning early morning take offs each day. Thursday I may cool it down and ride more local. You guys have me interested in Parking Lot challenges. Would love to try an actual lay out! Always trying to improve!
