If the snow melts and the crick don't stay up too long, I'll switch from four legs to two wheels, pull the EVT outta the shed, and get up outta this holler in the spring.

Hope to join some lunch rides in The Four States region and wander over to the 'vale in mid May.

It would be nice to get some of crew back together.  It's getting more difficult over time.   Crotchety old men, sometimes it's their hip, next time it's their ego, it's always something.   :wink:

Nice looking quarter horse Mike!
I miss my cowboy up days and nights at the horse camps in the Smokys.
This picture I was heading out for a 3 day trip crossing Va on the Virginia Highlands horse trail.

The BMW 50th national rally is on the east coast this year outside of Richmond in June. The BMW guys I ride with say these are a Big Deal so I'll be attending my first one.

Beyond that I may join some folks for an overnight ride to upstate NY.

I'm riding my Stelvio down to the Quota-Treffen in S. West France in July.
I may go back to Mandello on it in Sep, for the Anniversary weekend, and possibly go from there down to Portugal.

I *like* Durango. Don't miss the Durango Silverton railroad trip. Take a bus to Silverton, maybe hire a jeep and check out old silver mines, take the train from Silverton to Durango. You'll be glad you did.  :smiley:

Chuck -

We rode the Million Dollar Highway four times when we were last there.   The Wife loved it.... while going north.  The southern passage kind of freaked her out, riding along the outside with no guardrails.

Good idea on hiring a jeep.

Here's the train..

When we did the million dollar highway, Dorcia was hanging out of the side of the sidecar taking pictures. Same climbing Pike's peak.  :smiley:

Well TODAY it's 40 degrees and sunny already - and I'll be out the door by 8am.

I have no clue where I'm going.

Only thing on the books so far is AMA Vintage days in July and Ohio and KY rallies in Sept.  Just found out I have to have my left ankle recostructed in May so that will be 8-10 weeks non weight bearing, so first part of the riding season is screwed.  Gettin' old ain't for sisses!

Was on Mount Nebo (Jordan) this week, amazing roads. Unfortunately on 4 wheels not two, but not sure Id risk it on a MC local driving habits. VERY few MCs spotted the last 2 weeks. A shame because the roads are great.
