Let's see...went to Kroger's, post office, gas station(s), BMW bike and car dealers, Honda car dealer, Lowe's, Home Depot, Dairy Queen, Jamison's Meats, doctors' offices, hospital, County building, Harley dealer (only with a friend!), both daughter's houses, brother's house and numerous other locations. Slow year.
North Carolina, for a big (50 +/- bikes) Brit bike ride, in May- with friends from England. We rode my two K bikes down to Blowing Rock, and I had a friend bring my Norton in his truck.
Then over to Germany, Sweden, & Norway in August. Main event was the 50th International BSA Rally,
near Valldal in "southern" Norway. Along the way to the Rally, we visited with friends and attended a major Swedish hot rod rally,
the A-bombers Old Style Weekend. I rode my friend's Yamaha XT 500, he on his full custom BSA "Dark Star"- but we trucked the bikes rather than ride.
Above please see links to both my "ride reports" -which I presented over at Britbike.com. Below is a photo "teaser" from Norway's world famous Trollstigen- the awesome stone bridge and waterfall.

I drove a rental car to Wichita.
I'd be surprised if I've ridden 300 miles in that past 15 months.
This concluded our two part tour of the east coast from Maine to Key West to include PA, OH, WV, TN and KN.
Guess it is time (as they say) to go west young man since going farther east from Virginia Beach would be very wet.
Susie wanted to swim with the dolphins at Marathon Key.

When you find a big kettle of crazy, it?s best not to stir it.
This years "Quest" was to find seasonal/little used roads within a 50 mile radius of my house. Trying to slow down a bit and get away from cell phoners and texters..
Seasonal road near Andes, NY

Nice! Roads without paving or painted lines are certainly slower paced and worth it.
