What trips 2019 edition

What trips does everyone have planned for 2019?

I'll be going to ride the blue ridge parkway and the dragon in late May and then in June the wife and I are going to Gaspe for a week. I will be going to the fall peep show as well.

Taking 10 days, either Death Valley and Arizona, N.M., Colorado, and Utah in May, or Olympic Peninsula , Montana, Idaho in July.
Having a hard time deciding.

If I'm lucky I'll make the Cache Rally. Perhaps a BMW rally that is local.

Originally had a huge trip planned for the summer hitting all of the Canadian provinces and territories except Nunavut, I was planning on taking the entire summer off to ride and camp and do a few other things. Unfortunately, a co-worker just quit. Him and I both do the same job, and we are the only two that know the job or have the skills for it, so essentially it just doubled my workload. I will still do something, but it will be much smaller. maybe a fly and ride, flying from Montreal to Vancouver and doing a trip up to Tuktoyuktuk which was the original highlight of the epic trip to begin with. It would still be fun since I would probably buy a thumper in Vancouver for the trip, and sell it after.

If such a reduced summer happens, I may also try to take a four day weekend over Labour day and do the Trans-Lab.

Would love to finally meet you, why not attend the Strom rally May 16th and then exploring all around the vicinity before heading back North? MY group is also doing the BRP during the rally, likely on the way down from start to stop, but could very well be on the way back to Ohio as well.

That was my original plan but I could not get that week off work. I started a new job and am low man on the seniority list. May 20 is a holiday so everyone took the Friday before off and I have to work it

Nashville, the Natchez Trace Parkway, New Orleans, then to Pensacola,Fl in June on the Road King.... MABDR in October on the Vstrom.... and as much shorter rides as I can cram into my schedule!!! Work gets in the way of my motorcycle trips! How much longer do I have to work?

From Seattle to Vancouver Island. The Port Hardy ferry (14 hours) to Prince Rupert then south on the Highway of Tears to Lillooet. Then the Sea to Sky back to Vancouver BC and home from there.
As long as the the forest fires don't screw the plans like last time...

Heading from Seattle area to meet friends in Calgary Canada and then up to Yellowknife in the NW Territories and then back through Banff, Lake Louise and such. About 3500 miles. No camping on this trip.
