You will all think Im crazy but on my favorite ride its'pouring rain and we're splittin cars at 120 MPH on a bad arss chopper!! Nothin like that feeling on earth.

Dangerous?? Hello YES, but fun as hello!!!

Of course we cannot ride that way all the time **(I truly understand all the dangers of it and that we risk our lives,,etc bla.. bla.. so I don't need a lecture from anyone)** but those moments that we allow ourselves to throw caution to the wind and live on the wild side??

Those are the thrills that we never forget!!

Hmmm... Okay... a favorite fantasy ride... I'll give it a shot!

Up at dawn with a steaming cup of coffee. Getting all my gear together and picking out something a little sexy to wear, not too bold, a bit more soft and subtle.

Walking outside in the crisp morning air to an inviting seat on the back of comfy, long-arse-haulin':) bike. Moving slowly and surely behind a man who's warm heart and adventurous nature gets me even more excited for the ride to begin.

We glide down a beautiful, back road, filled with hills and valleys that you can see for miles. I feel the warmth of the sun and the kiss of the wind on my face. The hills and curves are manuevered as expertly as a musician plays his chosen instrument. Then the cresceno builds as we approach a section of twisties. A fresh rush of adrenelin and I find myself grinning from ear to ear, eyes open wide.

Then, we come to a straight stretch of road and his body relaxes against me. He reaches back and his hand presses gently on my thigh. We slowly pull over to an open area, where we know there is a stream nearby.

Hot day, Hot ride, Skinny Dippin' Yeah, buddy ! haha

WOW!!! I pick this one...I pick this one!!! (and I was going to say PCH!)

Dang, Dynamal, kudo's dude for having a great and safe ride. Nights here have been in the 30's, so scootin' out this weekend was a bit nibbly, if you know what I mean. But it was way worth it, beautiful crisp, clear day, great company and that hot, steamy shower after was a bit of bliss, too haha.

Looks like the last one for awhile..winter storm warning on the cape says we may get 8-10 inches of the white stuff tonite ...well guess the snowmobile comes out of hiding...it ain't the same but at least it gets me off the couch..
bummer
march can't come soon enuf

One of the prettiest rides I've taken in Colorado is from Gunnison to Montrose and down to Cortez via Lizard Head pass.
Another is Colorado Springs to Woodland Park to Deckers to Bailey to Fairplay to Hartsell to Colorado Springs.
25 to 80 to 82 to 84 to 90 is a great ride as well.

I don't know if yesterday's ride was a favorite...but it sure was interesting. It was about 34 degrees on the Cape when I headed to pick up my bike at my sisters house..It seemed a little cooler Over the Bridge. The bike really rides nice when it gets cool. I headed for the dealership in beantown thru Randolph and Holbrook ...it was nuts around the south shore plaza in braintree as people are killing each other getting ready to celibrate Christmas.. Now that just doesn't seem right.. It got cooler as the sun ducked behind the clouds.. I really had to pay attention because people in the cars were doing everything but...
I saw the guy driving the explorer..a lady and 2 kids with him...heading for the mall... he was wearin a black flamed sweatshirt... I could see him lookin at me..not like I was crazy...but like he would give anything to be ridin his...sorry Dude...next time. I rode thru the Blue Hills for a few miles. The tree lined road was about 10 degrees colder where the sun could not get thru. Why can't I throw away these old gloves???? My fingers were about to break off...In Quincy people have their houses lit up. Nice... I headed thru Wollaston by the beach and the wind nearly blew me to the other side of the road..Dorchestah to South Boston, my home town, and Castle Island. A quick hello to my Uncle Chicky got me a cup of coffee and a chance to thaw my fingers..and of course, the eye roll that told me that I was a little nuts. I got by traffic at the Bay Side Expo Center that gave drivers another chance to be nasty to each other in time for Christmas.
Back on the highway...the tunnels provided a break from that biting wind that seemed to find any place my leathers didn't cover.. this is boston though....of course the tunnels leak...water and cold = ice.. gotta pay a little extra attention to the road..and the drivers on cell fones with the radio's blastin and their windows rolled up. The tunnels are warm though. I arrived at my destination Boston Harley...guess what..other bikes were there...mostly singles...who'd a thought I'd be ridin in Boston on December 3rd?? How cool is that???? If I have to explain....ya wouldn't understand...
It's snowin' here this morning so the purple color will get a chance to leave my thighs..and I can get feeling back in my fingers. I do have to bring the dog for a run in the bogs...I won't complain even a little bit when she sticks her head out the window to feel the wind...I understand completely.

One of my favorite rides is a state road, two lane...up, down, twisties, country, little traffic out to a State Park...round the lake..and back. Always an enjoyable ride.

Hope to add more..but the next ride is always the best ride.

I like hwy101 from Ca, thru OR and ends in northern WA state. Beautiful scenery, many curves, great places to eat and fresh air.


That is a beautiful part of the county. Haven't done it by bike but that is on my list of places to go. Through all the redwoods in Northern Cal and along the coast in Oregon. You have to go over the bridge in Astoria on that route, right? Wow, what a rush!!!!

THE NEXT ONE, WILL ALWAYS BE MY FAVORITE RIDE. It gives me something to look forward to. There's nothing like riding with everything around you. THE VIEW, (the colors are so much more real, than riding in a car), THE SMELLS, (that fresh cut field of hay or what ever you pass by), the WIND on you, that SPECIAL TOUCH from each other when riding two-up. When you pass a another bike or group of bikes going the other way, and you wave a each other. We are a part of a brotherhood, that someone who doesn't ride will never know or understand. We are willing to stop and help a bike along side the road, never knowing them before this time and place. And knowing that someone on a bike would stop and help me also if I was having trouble. Take Care All, Ride Safe and Always Have Fun.

As all have said and we all agree any ride is a good ride. I love riding around the Hill Country here in Texas but that's where I have done most of my riding. I am looking for the day I set out on my first long distance ride. To pack up my bike and hit the road for a few weeks is my dream. I want to head west and north, back to Oregon which is the final stop before heading back home. I also want to head east and north to see so much of this country I haven't seen.

Dave.....Done a lot of riding in that area just North of Leggett, CA. Hwy 1 ends at 101, but there are many roads off of it that re-connect heading North. A lot of loops through pld growth redwood forests and along rapid infested rivers. The Oregon coast is great too, especially during the week. Weekends are a bit crazy. Makes me want to head out there now, so many rides, so little time...

Like many of you have said here and in numerous other posts, usually any ride on any day is your favorite. I must agree. I'm always excited to throw my leg over and power away.

There are also places I seek to return to. Some of these places are close by where I live. I take these familiar routes and watch the scenery change as the seasons progress.

When I travel to other parts of the country, I have found places worthy of a return visit as well as places where friends live, and when I'm in these other places away from home, I have my favorite places to return to there as well.

A couple of examples are the Honeydew loop road, also known as the tiger Cat road near Eureka, California. Through the ancient redwood trees, over high steep coastal mountains with narrow twisting unmarked blacktop, along the ocean, through small laid back hamlets and along rivers and creeks where you can stop and soak your feet. This ride is around 75 miles. Plenty of opportunities to camp either on the ocean or at AW Way County Park. If camping doesn't suit you, there are some small cottages and a couple of motels in the area.

Another place is the area around garnd Junction, Colorado. Highway 141 South is my favorite there. So many different ways to meander through mountains and desert valleys. Telluride, Gunnison, Black Canyon, Four Corners, Durango, Cortez and the list goes on and on. Scenic vistas at every turn. It's as if you are attending church to head out on this road through Gateway it is so peaceful and beautiful.

I'm sure most of you can relate with your own places. The places you daydream of being when you're not riding and wish you were.

Peace to all, Safe riding.

Any ride any day...
I live in Humboldt County California in the heart of the redwoods and after a tough day at work I like to ride the Avenue of the Giants along the Eel River. Its a beautiful 26 mile ride and you end up at the Riverwood Inn and that's one great biker bar, great Mexican food too.
The Redwood Run is a BLAST too.
