Very cool, good luck on the trip.
My friend recommended this forum and I am glad he did. I love touring on my Triumph Bonneville and riding in New England on my Ducati Monster. Last summer I rode my Bonnie alone to Worcester, MA from Los Angeles California.
Check out my site, http://missrider.com
This summer I will be riding from Worcester, MA to Panama. I depart from Worcester, Massachussetts on June 23, 2012 and return the second week in August. When done with this ride I think I will have added another 15k miles to my bike.
On June 23, I will ride to Buffalo New York alone and would love some company, thus, the post in this forum. I will rest there for a day then off to Chicago with a quick stop in Toronto Canada to meet some friends for lunch. Interested in joining me to Buffalo? Or to Chicago? Or to Panama?
Very cool, good luck on the trip.
Nice! Welcome to the site!
My ass hurt just thinking about this!!
Well, I'll have to say that's about the best first post to a forum I've seen in a long time. I think I would be interested in the ride to Buffalo, and perhaps on to Chicago. Panama, unfortunately, would be very unlikely to be possible for me this year. I did ride my Monster from San Diego to NH, via New Orleans, in October.
Welcome aboard Madeline! I hope you like this site. Lotsa stuff here. Rides, events, how to fix, trackdays, dirt riding, classifieds, and of course my favorite The Pits with the sub catagory Race Reports. I had a good season on the TZ. Made all 7 weekends and looking forward to starting another safe season at LRRS. Enjoy this forum. Lots of friends to be made.
Awesome journeys, I'll have to follow your trip updates! Welcome to the forum!
Wow, that's insane, I just came back from Panama a couple weeks back, gorgeous landscape but watch out for the drivers, they're all insane and don't seem to adhere to any sort of traffic laws. Also it seems the streets are flooded with military personnel some carrying semi/automatic machine guns everywhere (seriously, saw more than a few times a bike two up with the passenger carrying a machine gun on his lap, scared the hell outta me)
But nevertheless, that's quite an intense ride, good luck!
Welcome and good luck with that trip. sounds intense!
I have plans to take my Duke to the track. Maybe not this summer because of the ride to Panama but if I don't do another solo coast to coast ride summer of 2013, I will be on the track. Yesterday I learned how I could get a riding suit for half the cost. I cannot afford a $1000 for a riding suit.
youre confusing me with the duke comments. i keep thinking youre talking about a duke when in fact youre talking about the monster
Good luck on your trip!
Have you read Two Wheels Through Terror?. Not suggesting it to be a downer AT ALL. There are some great tips about being in Central America.
I'll be looking forward to your blog posts down there!
Very cool, I hope to follow in your footsteps at some point after the last bird had left the nest.
Do you have a set list that you follow while you are packing?
I am going on a trip to Newfoundland this summer. Our rough estimate is 3k-4k miles.
I have been creating a list of things that I think I will need and was wondering what you bring on your long trips.
Hii!! Its Ray from the superbowl party at Sonia's. Glad you joined!
Sam....I have a list I use here...it's a Word Doc so you can edit it to your own satisfaction!
