    I didn't get to take take all the trips I had planned. Only made two Rallys this year, BMWMOA and MGNOC (Guzzi National). Work always seemed to get in the way.

    Did a short 520 mile local trip on our 250 cc Honda Rebels last weekend, just a quick overnight ride to Curlew Lake, WA. Thinking about doing something Labor Day weekend since that is my normal 4 day weekend (I work very strange hours....). We'll probably head to Oregon and find some back roads we've never been on.

    Spouse managed to do a couple of the Guzzi rallies, the BMW National and even did back to back Iron Butts (a SS1000 on the way out and a BB1500 on the way home) to visit family in MN last month. And he's headed back in two weeks. ~sigh~ He gets all the fun.

    I do manage to ride to work every day, though. Well, as long as there's no ice on the roads.

    We start our shift bids for next year on Monday, we'll see what I get. Hopefully, it'll be a little more conducive to my much needed weekend rides.
    Too damn many bikes to list

    Just did a mileage calculation last night, 10,641 miles! Never had so much fun! I guess I'll have to retire before I can reach "Voni-dom"!

    That's a pretty respectable year, Malaszka. And retirement is still not enough to get into Voni-dom. I've tried, the last few years since I retired, to no avail.
    Voni is the queen of sMiles. (But I'll keep trying.)

    My wife and I had a wonderful trip to Nova Scotia.

    We stayed in Baddeck, Cape Breton for 5 days and experienced some great riding

    The day we did the Cabot trail must have been the best day of the year

    It was also her first long trip (on her own bike) and we had a blast!



    And the picture does not do the day justice

    Thumbs up

    I camped out at the Winter Rally in Camp Blanding, FL, with the B-Cubed group at Daytona, missed the Rally at Redmond, and traveled out to Shady Cove OR in August to purchase a Bushtec trailer (Fleamarket item). Visited with friends in Copperas Cove, TX. I will attend Bike-toberfest in Daytona and the Sunbeemers Rally in Venice , FL. Ride Safe

    I did various local rides with some groups, rode to Key West as a check out ride for our trip to Vermont and back. I have only managed arond 6,500 so far, but I had to take a couple of months off to heal.

    Does riding to and from work as well as running errands count in between water pump repairs? This is what my summer ride consisted of.

    Beauteous!
    I hope to keep riding too! Though there's "weather" coming in this weekend.
