    ok so as some of you know i am trying to get one of my bikes up to Vernon B.C. from Richmond Tx. right now i have 3 options
    1-ship it
    2-have a friend trailer it to Billings (not sure if he can), then ride from there
    3- RIDE IT :rider

    after talking to Jack he gave me the idea to start a thread, so here it is. I am guessing the start date would be mid Aug (this is just a guess right now) Jack would ride over here to Richmond (with permission from the redhead, which i am sure he will get so she can have some peace and quite) then start heading north. we would like to know if there are any members who would like to ride along part of the way or do a meet and greet along the route.

    the rough route (by city) would like to try to stay clear of any major city centers, and would take back roads around these i could which is where i would probably need some help from other members when the time gets closer.
    Richmond, Tx
    Waco, Tx
    Abaline, Tx
    Amarillo, Tx
    Pueblo, Co
    Denver, Co
    Casper, Wy
    Billings, Mo.
    Spokane, Wa
    cross the boarder on US395 into Canada

    As mentioned right now this is just an good thought but the one i prefer and look forward to the most. right now the mileage is 2469 for the complete trip.

    please note that i said nothing about who would take the photos..:p

    I can't go to Canada, my passport is expired. I wonder what it costs now days to renew it? Hey Loren, at least I won't need that irritating suit. LOL

    Wow, right now I can only dream about joining you on a trip like that. It really stinks when your job gets in the way of riding adventures!

    Any chance of bending the route and including a day or two in Sturgis?

    I'd be interested in riding up through Colorado with y'all. Maybe further, depending on what the work situation looks like then.
