    Wall Mounted Route Map

    Here is a photo of my BMW Routes & Pin Map
    Over 100 rally Pins collected since 1987
    430,000 miles traveled on my 1977 R100RS

    Anyone else display their travels?

    I tried it once on a map like yours but gave up. Not enough detail on the map to find my routes and some areas of the US that I had been to 5 or 6 times turned into a big blob.

    Really nice trophy wall!
    A question though, you haven't been to manic cinq or done the james bay road?
    With all that travel - what was your favorite road/ride?

    I was totin' my pack along the dusty Winnemucca road,
    When along came a semi with a high an' canvas-covered load.
    "If you're goin' to Winnemucca, Mack, with me you can ride."
    And so I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside.
    He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand.
    And I said, "Listen, I've traveled every road in this here land!"

    [Chorus:]
    I've been everywhere, man.
    I've been everywhere, man.
    Crossed the desert's bare, man.
    I've breathed the mountain air, man.
    Of travel I've had my share, man.
    I've been everywhere.

    I've been to:
    Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota,
    Buffalo, Toronto, Winslow, Sarasota,
    Wichita, Tulsa, Ottawa, Oklahoma,
    Tampa, Panama, Mattawa, La Paloma,
    Bangor, Baltimore, Salvador, Amarillo,
    Tocapillo, Baranquilla, and Perdilla, I'm a killer.

    [Chorus]

    I've been to:
    Boston, Charleston, Dayton, Louisiana,
    Washington, Houston, Kingston, Texarkana,
    Monterey, Faraday, Santa Fe, Tallapoosa,
    Glen Rock, Black Rock, Little Rock, Oskaloosa,
    Tennessee to Tennesse Chicopee, Spirit Lake,
    Grand Lake, Devils Lake, Crater Lake, for Pete's sake.

    [Chorus]

    I've been to:
    Louisville, Nashville, Knoxville, Ombabika,
    Schefferville, Jacksonville, Waterville, Costa Rica,
    Pittsfield, Springfield, Bakersfield, Shreveport,
    Hackensack, Cadillac, Fond du Lac, Davenport,
    Idaho, Jellico, Argentina, Diamantina,
    Pasadena, Catalina, see what I mean-a.

    [Chorus]

    I've been to:
    Pittsburgh, Parkersburg, Gravelbourg, Colorado,
    Ellensburg, Rexburg, Vicksburg, Eldorado,
    Larimore, Admore, Haverstraw, Chatanika,
    Chaska, Nebraska, Alaska, Opelika,
    Baraboo, Waterloo, Kalamazoo, Kansas City,
    Sioux City, Cedar City, Dodge City, what a pity.

    Never heard of manic cinq, will have to look that up!

    Isn't the James Bay Rd. all gravel? Not too good with a RS pulling a trailer.

    Looks like you've missed British Columbia and Washington state. Well, I tell you my friend, you've missed a lot of great motorcycle roads. And you've also been a lot of places!

    Www.destinationhighways.com For some great roads in BC, Washington, California.

    We caught the lower tip of BC coming back from the Montana Rally, the plan is to do more.
    I did all my travels while still working a job, plan to retire soon so more riding is in the works after 2 knee surgeries.

    Did the coastal ride in California from Oregon down to Eugene across Sacremento to lake Tahoe, maybe hard to see on the map.
