Yes to that, already on my calendar BeerBanana

Shoot! I'd better do something then!

By this time next year I'll be happily retired and ready to ride. Since I'm looking at at least 2,000 miles to get to any of the eastern mountains, I'm not too picky about where we end up. I've never ridden east of the Mississippi, so I'll leave that to the experts.

If you all feel like coming out west, the better for me!

I noticed in the California Superbike School catalog that they offer group bike tours (including track days) in Austrailia. I'm out of town at the moment, but I'll look for it when we get back and I'll try to post some info on what route they use. Cormanus (as our host...???) could use it as a starting point or thought. Idea Evelyn's given me the thumbs up if I really want to do this and even says if I can rent a CanAm, she might actually ride along. The ferret Since Austrailia isn't exactly around the corner, I probably need to bring her wth me if I come down... Shy

Be good to have the information, ride4now. Pterodactyl and I had a bit of a chat about possible routes the other week, but all ideas welcome at this stage.

West By God Virginia is a beautiful place. Fantastic State Parks - more like resorts with cabins, hotels, restaurants, and bars. Have had several get togethers in the parks with good results.
Lots of ski resorts with ample and inexpensive lodging hungry for visitors during the spring, summer, and fall.
Good riding.

according to Wikipedia 60% of the US population lives within 500 miles of West Virginia

That"s cool, but what about the CB population ? Can some one (cormanus Smile put CB pins on a map ?

My vote (and I should not have one as I am not a CB11 owner)
would be around Brea KY or WV.

Cormanus could, but he won't be due to time constraints. I do know, though, that another member has been toying with how to do this.
