    19 BMWMOA Nationals under my belt, and I have no idea what I am doing.

    Funny you should ask

    I have ridden HD's (still have an Ultra Classic) and am sitting in Honolulu typing this as on Friday (it's still Thursday here) I will have my 50th state on a HD renting a Road Glide tomorrow. I bought my first BMW in August and am starting over to get all 50 states on a BMW. I'm getting the hardest one out of the way early as I rented a 1150 R today. So I ask the masses, do you know anyone that has all 50 on two different brands? I will have around 20 or so by June on the BMW. I'll get them it may take a while. It took me 7 years to get to 50 on the HD, 5 to get 49.

    changes

    After you create your own map and save it,
    how do you add states?
    Or do you just start over each time?

    Thanks, Phil

    I've barely been into a few of these states/provinces, but I did at least gas up in them, so I guess it counts

    My criteria is a little more strict than wheels touching. To hit the list I have to have slept overnight in the province/state.

    Last year was my first year back in the saddle after a 26 year layoff.

    All of the visited were done in and around the 07 National.

    p.s. why am I limited to a maximum of only 1 stored attachment?
