Thumbs up Who wants to ride??????

I'm thinking first weekend in April. Long weekend. Take off a Friday and Monday, or Thursday and Friday, or Monday and Tuesday. Leave Flagstaff, AZ and head for the coast!!!

Straight out to the coast, up to around San Fran, out to Tahoe, then back to Flagstaff.

Join for some of the ride or all of it. Flexible dates.

Life is short, let's ride!!!!! No excuses.

An excuse that involves another planned motorcycle ride in the not too distant future is acceptable.

I'm doing this ride as cheaply as possible. Canned tuna for meals, roadside food vendors or stands. Stay with friends or camp.

Good stuff!!

Im looking at 13 states, over 2.5 weeks and food and lodging many times over the trip.
Plus whatever I spend on the kids while out.
Wife will fly in and meet me in San Antonio and Chicago for my Grand Daughters and Sons birthdays.
Gonna be expensive, but my big trip of the year.

It's 470 miles from Flag to home here. We can do some local roads, anything you aren't familiar with, for a day or two and then you can head north. If that fits in your plans or just crash and go.
No freaking lame-o excuses. Ride or Whine!:biggrinjester:

I'm lookin at 4 days total, possibly five.... won't have much time for sitting.

At the least we should meet for breakfast or lunch or dinner and you can point me in the right direction. (Or choose your favorite place to eat as the meet-up location:mrgreen
