    Have been riding for years but have never been further than northern Va and that was on Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive. What's it like though central MD, Pa, NY?

    Hey DarkKnight and Artimus, I haven't made any definite plans, but look forward as that's one part of the country I haven't seen. I know DK is from up that way and so is Glider. I do like to get on the road though and have the time to go places.

    Sounds good, I came down south about 20 years ago. I grew up in Connecticut.

    You ought to venture this way again. I'm originally from NC and rode in my early years, since 74, NC Va and SC. Job took me in 77 to NW AL, so i got to ride AL, MS TN quite a bit. Moved back to NC in 89, back to old trails. Job then took me to MS, got to ride W TN, AR, LA. Moved to SW TX nad got to ride q lot of TX, NM, OK and into Mexico(just made a trip to Monterrey a couple of weeks ago). I'm in Texas now, but will be heading back to NC for the holidays.

    Thanks for the invite DK, I saw your ride while browsing the other night. Will keep watching your plans to see dates and if I'm on the east coast then maybe I can make it. I'll probably do it like I did Sturgis year before last, make it a 2 week excursion. There's only three events that I've made commitments for 08, Daytona Bikeweek, Republic of Texas(ROT rally), and the 105 HD event.

    From spring to mid fall riding southern NY and northern PA is awesome. Stay more central like around RT 15... no where near NYC. Some real nice curves and open roads.

    Just moved to NC. I've seen some of the west, lived in Texas 7 years. Rode NM, central and eastern CO. Did Sturgis tours, Black hills and such. The far west is another place I haven't ventured to yet. I did get to the OK State Rally this year.
