best road trip was riding to the 4-corners bike week in Colorado....
Riding all the switchbacks over silverton pass, into Ohm...was the most memorable.
S turns all the way....and not a bit of sand or gravel.....
My favorite bike trip so far was the week long, 2000 mile vacation to Virginia that my wife and I took last summer. Rode Skyline Drive and some of the BRP, tent camped all but the first and last night. Gorgeous weather, great riding. Loved every minute of it.
I also enjoyed my first Iron Butt ride that I did in September. Totally differnent kind of riding, but fun and memorable in its own way.
My wife and I rode from Florida to CA, then to the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Moab, Joe Cocker's, Grand Canyon of the Gunnison, Royal Gorge, Pikes Peak, up to Sturgis for a week, then a week to get home.
Spent 30 days on the Harley that trip, 8K miles. Unforgettable.
I'll be heading back to Big Bend next year but my big trip is going to be to MOAB. I also have a side excursion planned to visit many of the mods I "work" with.
Sometme this summer, I'm riding my Busa to the west coast, up the coast to OR, then east to Glacier, etc. Maybe three weeks or so. Wife isn't going this time.
Indy MotoGP in the fall. :up:
I have so many... It's hard to pick just one.
As far as riding is concerned, I ran through SW Texas twice with very memorable experiences:
The first one, I passed by the Guadalupe Mountains and followed US 90 back to San Antonio after purchasing my XT600 in January. The ride back was in the upper twenties to upper thirties for most of the trip. I saw some amazing scenery and froze my @$$ off. I also discovered that the bike needed a little bit of attention.
I swore I'd come back. I did, several times. Most recently, I camped out in Ft. Davis at the state park and hit the loop around the Davis Mountains, swung through Big Bend State Park and the river road, and hiked a little at the Guadalupe Mountains National Park.
Both were weekend trips - just enough to get away and recharge. Unlike some of my longer trips, I wasn't completely wiped out from being on the road so much. (My bank account didn't suffer as greatly, either!)
