    Loose weight so my R3 can pull me into turn 1 without losing 7 places.

    Take time off from work and ride my brandy new end of year purchase K1600GTL to remote places I haven't already been. (See -TOURING - Lunch in Vegas, Yosemite, Palomar, Death Valley, etc.)

    RE: #4 - I rented a GS from MotoQuest last year and rode out to Joshua Tree and also did the lower PCH to Lake Elsinore route. The canyons from the PCH to Lake Elsinore are worth the trip! This trip also included a SoCal Supermoto day. AWESOME!!!!!

    Lastly I would like to do more rides with other people. Yankee Beemers or Seacost group on the sporty bike.

    In a nutshell: Continue to flog all my bikes and a few others to within inches of their lives.

    More multi-day trips... did a lot of overnight motocamping last year but that limited how far from home I could get. It'll be easier now that I have all my gear sorted properly.
