Circled Lake Michigan, 1525 mi & plenty of rain, some sun too, had a great time. 4 or 5 poker runs and a lot of solo cruising. I aint done for the year yet, if this rain stops I'm meeting up with some friends today for a ride. Hopefully 1 of these years we can go to Monument Valley, bucket list.

25000km, To the east coast and back, around Alberta, and back and forth from work too many times to count. If the weather is still good in October I'll ride my bike down to Phoenix. If it's crap, I'll ship it with some friends. Alas No miles on the bike till the 20th of September. I'm doing a UK pub crawl (so far so good)

My riding season is just about to start! I prolly have another week of work then planning a BIG ride.

I've been up to Oregon, all over California and did part of the V2V as well as lots of local riding. Bout 8K on Skully since May. Back and forth to Tahoe for work on a weekly basis. Not nearly as many miles and sMiles as I would have liked, but soon!!

Planning a big trip right now. Thinking of San Diego area, Anzo Borrego Park and maybe out to Az & Tx. FROZE MY ARSE OFF ALL SUMMER AT WORK(30-40 degrees every night up in Tahoe 7000+ ft elevation) I was going to go from Death Valley to Pikes Peak, but this time of year pretty iffy with the weather.

Had no motorcycle this early summer then a friend took me to motorcycle show with no intentions YA RIGHT two weeks later my first Victory a Vision 8 ball,then started a simply joyous warm and sunny summer of getting blown away by the bikes performace just never had such a fine bike...But I didn't get to go anywhere because of one timing glitch after an other except that I went to the VMC in Gorham but only for a day..Wanted to go to Daytona in October but Glitch..So I'm just going to add to my 15000 kms and piss off all the bikers in my area cause most just don't have what it takes to keep up with the Vision

Hwy 24, Wyoming. See Devil's Tower in the Distance? I've put 4000 miles since I got the bike July 17. Hope to get over to the North Carolina roads before it gets too cold. In the meantime, we're buzzing around all of the Western Kentucky/northern Tennessee roads every chance we get. Zoom........

Live in NW Illinois. Been on a few poker runs, a Breast Cancer run, some of the local favorites and just hittin the roads. Discovered a chapter of Women On Wheels in the Quad Cities area and have rode in that area a few times.
The best ride this summer was spending an entire week on the bike. Went to Rapid City,SD, up to Sturgis and Devil's Tower in WY. Then down to Mt Rushmore, rode through Custer Park and to the Crazy Horse Memorial. After that, stopped at Spirit Lake for the rally. Luckily we had NO rain and hubby's 2009 Ness Vision and my 2005 Vegasboth ran like brand new. We put over 2200 miles on the bikes that week. It was my first major trip on a bike since I learned how to ride in July 2007.
Ithas been a great VICTORY summer!!!

Sorry to hear that, maybe next season you can get some riding in.
Psych!! unless one of these guys starts lying (more than the usual)or actually does ride across Siberia, you are still my hero!
I will be riding all winter whenever theres no snow or ice on the ground just to try to repair my self esteem after what you've done. (well, I ride most of the winter anyway, but now I can tell my wife it's your fault)

Well, my "Nuclear winter" is almost over and paradise is quickly returning to Arizona to begin my riding season. During the past few months I was able to log a couple "short rides" such as............

Sonora, Mexico......









Also took a short day trip up the Salt River Canyon in Arizona to Show Low......






Then I took a mini-work vacation through Arizona, New Mexico, then onto Colorado to visit with our Fearless Leader.......











...............Then Decided to make a quick 1000 mile day trip........



......Other than that, I really didn't ride that much during my "Nuclear Winter"

From Airdrie, Alberta in Canada to Montana and Idaho back home through British Columbia. Did this ride a number of times this year. Of course always doing the Whitefish, Montana run for chicken wings and beers at Bulldogs. Man I like that place.
