OshkoshFlight Week in later July -
depending on how early the weather breaks in spring ....I'd like to complete my busted stator interrupted trip down the southern part of the BRP.

Right now the 2018 goal is to get the CFB 6 miles to the new house.

Touratech Rally in Plains, WA in June.

Horizons Unlimited WestFest in Nakusp, BC in August.

Perhaps a weekend jaunt down to Portland, OR for the One Moto show in February - weather holding for us, that is.

My Summer....so far..

Going to do what StuckOnEarth suggested and do a lot of mini weekend camping trips...to get used to motocamping, and figuring out my gear....what works, what doesn't and what needs to be tweaked.

NEVA '18....which really is not that much of a trip, since I am only an hour South of Gravenhurst, where NEVA is being held this year.
But then....


Ontario to Newfoundland.
From Newfoundland, taking the Trans Labrador Highway to the James Bay Highway. Up to Raddison Quebec. Fly in a float plane to a remote Inuit community on the shores of James Bay. Back home.

Check-out camps

This. Exactly this.

If you're a diver, and you get new gear, you do what's called a "check-out dive" to make sure everything works and you know how to work it. I plan on doing several of these, starting with some cooler temperatures in April.

I'm planning on doing NEVA '18 as well and really looking forward to it.

I would love to get a 8 day trip down to Deals Gap again. Camping in the Smoky's is awesome during fall colours.

If I'm lucky - Colorado might be in the cards this spring.

Those Horizons Unlimited weekends are always a good time.

- 3 weeks in Mexico March/April

- Eastern V-strom Rally in May

- The Keys in October

I'll probably knock out a couple of weekend trips here and there. Like to get some camping in as well. We'll see what the year has in store for me.

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.

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.

Daytona Bikeweek in 3 weeks.
Eastern gathering in May. The can't miss event.
Late July it's off to Oshkosh for Airventure from there it is out to Sturgis for the Rally. (3 weeks +)
That leaves the month of June. On the Harley with the trailer behind for a month long vacation with my wife. (She won't ride on the Strom.)
I'm still trying to figure out a few more trips.

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!
