  • 2018 Ride Goals

    Anyone set any goals for a new destination, personal one day mileage record, annual mileage record, or other interesting water mark? Let’s hear it. I want to extend my distance away from home this year. No particular goal, just going farther.


    Wherever you go in life, ride there if at all possible.

    How far is Ohio from you? Lol

        .Not so much goals as aspirations JD. I would love to ride the Colorado Rockies, areas I frequented as a kid...about 1100 miles to Gunnison, CO!

          Ride smart, ride often! Our local Meetup group is lots of fun. Equal men and women. We even meet up with the Salem, OR group from time to time. Here’s our current schedule.

            Jenn and I have a trip planned to Co in June. We might trailer Whitey along. we would ride but part of the trip is hitting a big antique tractor salvage while we're out there. Im sure I'll have some big heavy treasure to haul home. Were stayim
            ng in Este Park most of the trip.
            Hoping to do a hwy 7 to Hot Springs run this year.

              I'd like to ride to work everyday......it doesn't rain. That in itself, will be a big goal for me, considering how long I've had my bikes, and how little I use them.

                I'm hoping to ride more. Get some short weekend trips in here and there. Going to be hard though, business this year looks to be slow at my warehouse so it'll be touch and go as we progress through the year .

                  Made reservations in a mc camp called Simple Life on old hiway 129 for about a weeks riding in Smoky Mountain area of NC and Tennesse. In April I am camping with some of my retired older motorcycle friends in Ozarks area.

                    My goal is 12,000 miles. I made that the previous years except last year. I'm sure I could have made it but sometimes shit happens out of your control. I plan on riding to the west coast in July and attending the M&G in Oregon. My 1 day ride record is 636 miles. That's enough not trying to go more but sometimes you have to.

                    Karen and I are doing the Blue Ridge Parkway end to end the middle of June with about 5 or 6 other bikes. Also, plan to be in Celina and Eureka Springs again. Click image for larger version

                      I dont really set goals, but I try to ride as much as possible and still keep a time balance with the family. Sometimes its hard to decide!

                        Well since I just got my R* in June I hadn't really thought about any "goals". I did manage to ride to work any day the weather permitted down to about 40 degrees. So looking forward to dragging the bike out here before long for my commute.

                        I did a 400 mile day trip with a buddy who has an Indian Vintage Chief. That was fun and I hope we can do a couple more rides this year. I'm going to take Shores idea and see if I can find a Meetup group or something to pick up a group ride. Would like to see what that's like. I do have one in mind that's a poker style ride as a fundraiser in memory of a kid that died a couple years back that was in my daughters class. He'd be 21 now. Sad loss. But I do enjoy my solo rides doing what I want and when so we'll see how I take to a group ride.

                        If all goes well I plan to put 10K on the roadie this summer.

                          It may sound trivial, but I haven't been able to ride since the first week of last June, when I dislocated my shoulder and tore my rotator cuff (3 of the 4 tendons torn either completely or partially). I was supposed to have surgery Jan. 17, but some medical complications came up, so I'm waiting for rescheduling. I hope to head west to the California border again (but not enter the state due to their concealed carry laws (travelling solo, I almost always carry). If it doesn't get too hot, I'd like to visit the Pima County Air Museum again (we lived in Tucson from '56 -'63). Hell, just getting to ride again might be enough!

                              Our winter has been so long and cold here I'd be happy to make it onto the damn driveway!

                                We have had just enough precipitation to piss me off for a long time, then this week, like 10 inches of rain. I’m ready for spring to pop into gear.


                                Wherever you go in life, ride there if at all possible.

                                  With the amount of rain we've had this past week, I was starting to look at watercraft!

                                I've never really taken a trip with any of my scooters. This year I'm planning to do that. Nebraska - Iowa - Minnesota, maybe more. I plan to tent it most of the time but may wuss out and get a room once in a while. Some of the destinations include family & friends so I'll be able to crash with them and catch up on ol' times!!!

                                  With 3 Roadstars in my possession, my goal is to try to get the custom build far enough along that I can at least take one actual street ride on it by season's end. Finishing it would be cool but finances & luck will dictate that since my personal rule for that bike is "Only buy what's required and only a screaming stupid cheap price". Waiting for those deals takes patience, that's probably why I bought a beater 2000 Roadstar for $1600 that I can make a quick & dirty bobber with.

                                    My goal is to not scratch or otherwise mess up the new paint, and to remember to put my foot down when I stop. If I do forget, I hope there is no one around to see me!

                                    Oh yeah, and to ride a lot this year
