New Years Resolution on the Tiger...

States I intend to put a wheel in during 07!
Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia, Deleware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Conneticut.

It is less than I would like to do. I would like to also hit Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Maine, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana and Illinois, but I think that might be a little too much for me.

I know of two other riders I am going to try and push into making this trek, but we will see.

I garantee a minimum of 8 states will be covered, but I am shooting for the 17already listed above.

I think if I hit all 17, it will be time to sell the Tiger and move on to a GoldWing.

Do it!!!

I started routing for '07 over the weekend. I think Alaska may have to wait for another year.

My goal is to ride more period and more track days. I am juggling quite a bit so not sure how much time I will really have. If things go as wella s I hope..I may be able to drop a few side things and focus more on 1.

Other than James and me fighting off your romantic advances what are we going to do in all these places? We need some adventure, some danger.

Adventure? Hmmm..... That might take a while to plan out.

I am thinking picking up the mountain trails somewhere and using that as a start. Skyline Dr in VA, Deals Gap in NC, Or way east, the barrier islands in NC, Not too much adventure up the eastern shore of VA, but you do get to cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. 18 miles of bridge can't be that bad?

Maybe bring back the quest to find old Ghost towns? I will bring the pop tarts and leave the blender.

Might be a good time to meet with other board members at the WT Northeast summer BBQ in July? I'm hoping to get the okay from Andrea.

If you were nice? It could be home base for a day or so with a selection of various mounts for day trips through all of New England! Could even time and combine your trip with a Loudin Track Day. Maybe get the likes of JohnnyB (and his sidecar), Mike, Brian, Chris, Mark, me, etc. up there?

Some great roads through MA, VT, NH, ME, and CT.

I am thinking Goldwing. But since I cannot pull that off right now, I guess you should settle for a corbin.

Don't be a hater. Just because your butt was previously worn out from "other" members here doesn't mean we want ours violated. Only a person with no sensation down there from years of misuse could have pulled off your ride.
