    Question How many States have you ridden your bike in?

    This is fun. I got 26 so far. Over the years as I have traveled around the country I keep track of what States I have ridden in. Online I found a site where you check off the states you have ridden in (or whatever) and it creates a color map you can save to you're computer.Click on the link below to go to the site. Then to really test you're computer skills, post it on this thread!
    Oh, and it doesn't count if you flew somewhere and rented a bike. That's cheating! My thread, my rules....

    A quick count reveals that I have only 16 so far, though that does include Hawaii.

    As I live in the southwest, I have ridden in Mexico, too.

    32, as well as New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Cape Breton Island. I anticipate adding at least 10 more by the end of this calendar year.

    If you scroll down on the map link page you can do Canada as well. Here's my Canadian conquests:

    more pls

    Fun. I woundn't have guessed that high a number off the top of my head, but a couple less-than-memorable trips added to the great ones turns out to be quite a few. I wish I could've traded several of the back and forth across Kansas and Nebraska for some better scenery, but you gotta get to the mountains somehow and those two almost always seem to be in the way. At least if you're in a hurry to get up there.

    after re-reading and looking at the snow outside, I'll take Kansas and Nebraska any day. And they were all great trips. Heck. I was on my motorcycle!

    Last summer to celebrate my 55th birthday, I did a 2-week, 9000 mile ride to all 48 contiguous states.

    It was the trip of a lifetime!

    Well, when I did it, I was surprised. I didn't think that I had hit a lot of the states, since most of my riding has been done in the west. But when I was checking off the states, I found that I had hit nearly all of them.

    I would say, however, that there's a number of the states that I have really done nothing more than ridden through, rather than really having spent any time exploring.
