Willys,

I like the whole concept. One caveat, I want to do this as many times as possible from this moment on. The whole purpose is to enjoy life as best as you can in the best means possible. Perhaps, one day, we will ride together.

Life is a ride that should be thouroughly enjoyed. ATGATT!

I'm again working on the paperwork to be able to enjoy the warm climate during the winter months.....so you never know...? I've been to Alcatraz once already and fully enjoyed the visit....lol. No as a guest unofficially not for real.....thank god! I would love to ride the west coast highway on my bike. We did it in a rental car and the entire time all I could think of was.....damn this would be great on my bike!

I love to ride long distances to see far off things that most never get to see or experience.

Do the PCH thing one year - and maybe because you're in the "neighborhood", hit up some of the National Parks in California - Yosemite, Redwood, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia...

Heck, you could even throw in Death Valley if you were feeling really adventurous.

Then, on another year, set up a trip to Utah to hit up the five national parks here: Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands, and Capitol Reef. And as long as you're in the vicinity, hit up the north rim of the Grand Canyon.

I love this video. I've seen it before--and now that I'm 63--makes me want to ride as much as possible while I still can!!! LOL How cool to just climb on and riding with the buddies of your youth?

It has taken me a serious car accident to finally realize this. Once I was semi crippled I realized I have only so many years of hobbies such as riding left in me before my neck screams stop! So get out while you can and enjoy life!!!!

Great timing for sharing the video Willys, during the winter when we all struggle to some degree to get out there and ride!
