Feel free to send me a PM when you do head this way. I should be free to ride on a Sunday/Monday if you don't mind a fugly (you have to see it to believe it) FJR tagging along. We've also been having some exceptionally warm weather lately. So you have to prepare for freezing to 80's weather... What's up with that!?

If you're really bored, you could ask for MHO on some of the better places to ride. Or check my blog which hasn't been updated for over a week.

So Cal is ok for warm beaches, but not sport touring/touring at all. Nor Cal is awesome and after two trips to Baltimore/Pennsylania last month, I have a new found respect for the east coast.
I can't compare Nor Cal to any other state, but it has to be among the worlds best...imagine a not so cold German forest. You can throw a dart on the board at a map of Nor Cal and then another, and the road in between is guaranteed to be great. South of San Jose, its best to stick to the coast. There's also the Sierra Nevadas that go down to Central Ca and borders Nevada.

2) West Texas - lots of twisty roads amidst incredible mountain scenery. Follow the Rio Grande on the River Road with its many sharp turns and elevation changes, explore the Davis Mountains or cruise US Highway 90 with its quaint towns and regular vistas.

3) South Texas - the rolling plains leading to the coast are lined with lightly traveled farm roads and easy-to-speed highway. Be careful, however. You may wind up at the coast wishing you had brought your swim suit.

...not only did I list three different states, they're practically different countries!





I nominate the four corners for runner-up.

Coronado Trail in Eastern Arizona between Morenci and Alpine is outstanding and such little traffic. Probably at the top of my list of great hardly used roads.

Plus in TX, unlike CO, utah, even TN sometimes, you can ride year round for the most part. West TX is hard to beat all around, though there are some better places certain times of the year.

Also, rural MD and WV mountains, another combo you can do in one day.

Ah, yes... The '08 is here with the statement: black is beautiful!

As for my '03... It's wearing a mix of '05 plastics with the original '03 in order to have the factory integrated turn signals and the glove box. I've not gotten all the plastics the same color... yet. So, it's quite fugly at the moment!

Most of you probably read about my latest trip through TN, KY, WV, VA, and NC. I've explored all of central to eastern TN, most of north GA, and north AL. I'm also very familiar with west NC. I'm lucky to live by so much great riding.

However, nothing I've ridden can top the 1.5 days I spent exploring WV. If you desire to ride 100's of miles of curvy two lane roads, try WV. You can link roads together, and literally ride 4-500 miles of nothing but beautiful curvy roads with next to no traffic!

I will eventually make it farther north, and farther west, but WV is where its at in the east...

Life is all about ass; you're either covering it, laughing it off, kicking it, kissing it, busting it, trying to get a piece of it, or behaving like one.

Once you have flown, you will forever walk the Earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you long to return.

Four wheels move the body; two wheels move the soul.
