    If you're 2 wheels hit any square inch of a state it counts! I rode from Denver to the Sipapu, NM rally a few years ago and went by way of SE Colorado, across the panhandle of OK and then the very tip of the NW corner of the panhandle of TX. Score both!!!

    Most of N.America:)

    No Alaska or Hawaii on a bike, but everywhere else. All 48 many times over, for most of the states. Did the Canada coast to coast in '06 on the way to Vermont Rally and this was very good for the senses. Canada is very nice and much less populated, for the most part. Of course their insects make up the difference, as I like camping and the flies and mosquitoes rule in late afternoons. We have this in our lower 48 as well, so no blemish on Canada. Well traveled Beemers under this rider. Randy13233 I would have gladly added the Maple Leaf here, alongside my cherished Old Glory, but its not in the add on files! It should be added!....Make note, somebody at web centralThx.

    All of 'em, except that pesky water-locked one. Six Canadian Provinces. Mostly due to a 48 State ride in 2006, and two trips to Alaska.

    Heidi and I rode in all the lower 48 plus Alaska on our bikes, plus rented a HD on the Island of Maui. Also road a HD a couple of years ago on the Aloha 1000 on the Big Island.

    So the tally is 49 states on BMW's and 1 state on HD.

    We did all 50 states in the same year.

    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.

    I rode over my world atlas this morning backing out of the garage, so does that count for a round the world tour?

    Actually I have ridden half way around the world, since I started riding in Thailand back in 65 and Bangkok is exactly half round from DC.

    As far as state side mostly east coast, haven't actually kept track but hope to cross the Miss. River this summer on my ride out west.

    After you create the map, you can save it to your hard drive, then attach it as a picture.

    ... 32 States and 5 Provinces two-up in the past six years; 30 States and 5 Provinces solo since '98. This summer (if all goes by 'the plan') 35 States and 7 Provinces two-up. I would also add, as a Canadian travelling in the U.S., that every State (aka the people of that State) left us wanting to come back and stay longer. Great "myth buster" this travelling is! -Bob
