Is it an “Adventure” when riding mostly hard surfaced roads on a 10,000 mile trip? Yes........if you’re 75 years old and riding solo. That’s just my humble opinion.

The planned route is departing from Florida’s Space Coast on July 4th and traveling west to southern AZ to ride the Coronado Trail from Clifton northbound. I rode it southbound last will be even better going north and uphill. On the way I can’t pass up the road rated #1 by “Motorcycle Roads. com”, the “Twisted Sisters Ranch Roads” in West Texas Any inmate feedback on this choice?

Traveling north through Four Corners I’ll meander along the Rockies until heading west towards Vernal, UT, and then northwest to the BMW Rally in Salem, OR. Then it’s the Washington State BMW Rally the next weekend in Republic, WA. I have a couple of weeks to kill before the BeeCee Beemers’ Rally in Nakusp, BC, and that’s when I plan to shoot up to Yellowknife. Northwest Territory will be the ‘crown jewel’ of my little states and provinces maps. By coloring it in, I will have completed my motorcycle tour of all the continental US states and Canadian provinces (except Nunavut, which to my understanding, does not have any roads leading up to it).

Leading up to this trip I completed the Iron Butt Association’s National Parks Tour Master Traveler GOLD Award (parks in all the states including Alaska) and then did a circumnavigation of the United States by traveling up to Newfoundland, across Canada to Victoria, BC, then down the coast to San Diego, across the southern border and Gulf Coast to Key West, and back home. This thread documents that trip

For this upcoming trip the following sites will be useful: this current thread will include the daily (when feasible) Ride Report and pictures; my real time position reports every ten minutes will be available once I start my trip through my SPOT messenger beacon for a limited time at and my more permanent track log is available indefinitely at
This link did not get activated until I was stopped after the first day's ride.
