Since this board is really supposed to be all about motorcycle riding and our experiences, I thought I'd start something in a positive mood today.
This past year, i basically bought the bike I've always wanted and took full advantage of it. Part of it was me wanting to prove everyone wrong that Ducati's were poser machines (although I did my share of that too), and I did a pretty good job.
With the exception of the Big Dick rides (which will be continuing this year) I went on a couple with my girlfriend:
We put on 8500km together in just over a month of riding... it was a blast.
This year we're hoping to trail further north and into the interior again, as well as heading southeast to Idaho and Montana for a weekend and maybe down the eastern coasts of Washington and Oregon for a little trip.
I want to hear some of your plans for the 2007 season as it's a good time to look forward to what's to come. Forget riding in the rain, forget ear-plugs or full face helmets. With a bike it's so easy for us to head out on a Friday evening and go somewhere and be back in time to rest up for work on Monday... how are you going to take advantage of it?
Share your plans for where you plan on riding. I know some guys here are planning longer trips (shiftgear and his cali trip for one), let's hear about them.
