I might be doing this wrong. All y'all's plans are in the summer. My only trips on the calendar so far are to ride down to Canyonlands in late March and up the Cassiar in mid September. I spent a hundred bucks on a rain coat 3 years ago and, damn it, I intend to see a return on my investment. There'll probably be a few shorter trips in between, but not the kind that get scheduled too far out. At least out to Vancouver Island once or twice.

You guys have a lot of time to ride!

So far this year i have the dragon in mind, but i'd like to extend my stay to explore more. I might also swing by the florida keys, new orleans something exotic like that...

I was also thinking about visiting abandoned spots, discovering hidden gems, but that's gonna take research.

I was thinking about attending one or two meets, but they all seem to be on camping sites, expensive sites.

2014 VStrom 1000 Adv SE, because army bikes are more adv

Heading south to Arizona/California in 2 weeks to start the season. Ohio Windy 9 in May, multiple local-ish weekend and day trips throughout the summer... Hopefully another 5000+ km ride in the fall. These will be split between my gixxer and the Strom.

As for my rides planned so far this year
1. Eastern Rally in May (never miss this one).
2. Extended trip to Iowa then on to South Dakota, Colorado, Wyoming and maybe Montana and Idaho.
I will also be tempted by just about any ride that grabs my attention in between.

June 2-3- moto camping and exploring around Minnesota and SW Wisconsin.

Then comes the big trip in middle of August to head north for a swim in the Arctic Ocean. Should be about 3-4 weeks and at least one Saddle Sore and or Bun Burner along the way. The plan is to explore as much of Alaska as we can.

There are some off road adventure parks and a bunch of forest service roads in northern MN I hope to explore as well. So excited for summer!
