Just curious if anyone made any cool rides/ trips/ adventures this past summer.

Me and a buddy did 2100 miles in a week back in June. Best ride was from Nashville down to Lynchburg and back. Just gorgeous back country roads and sunshine. Memphis to St. Louis in a thunderstorm sucked ass though...
How about all a y'all?

The lap around the block I made just before I paid Hightest for his XS650. I had to sell my last bike (Vulcan 800A) in March due to lack of work and mounting debt, and I didn't think I was going to be able to afford another bike for a few years. So, that little test ride rates as the best ride of the year for me. :D

due to work schedules i wasn't able to do any really cool rides in '05, although i still managed to put about 6-7K miles on without leaving missouri.

but a couple of years back ron & i (we left the wimmin folks home) rode over all 23 mountain passes in colorado that are over 10,000 feet above sea level and are on paved roads. spent 7 days in colorado plus a couple of days each way getting there. very, very cool.

Best short ride: In the streets and bridges of Washington DC. Setting off alarms, hanging with hooooooligans, kicking broken bike parts and that girl with a black eye.

Best ride: My girl on the back, popping wheelies out of sweeping corners.

with my friend a few times back and forth to the hospital. him and his wife had baby and it was super sick and ended up passing but riding still made him smile. sometimes you need to ride just to get away from life.

Someone on here's signature says that best..."I'd rather be riding and thinking about God than sitting in church thinking about motorcycles" Rough stuff.

Not a long ride but beautiful. Rode over to the Hot Rod Hoe Down in Delaware. Route 896 through good ol' Amish country, solo with a twisted wick!!

The best ride I had this last summer was after I finally got the carbs figured out on my free Honda 350. (I still gotta post pics)

September 16th.

I asked my lady to get hitched. Since she wanted her grandmother's ring, I got out of the ring-buyng thing. So I bought her a new Vespa. She loves riding on the back of my Trumps, but to see her face after the maiden voyage on own 2-wheeler...priceless.

She put 100 miles on it the first weekend.

I think we all know that "first ride stoke."

It was really cool to see her riding. Now she wants a BSA, but is too afraid of the kick start. Hahahaha.

That was my best ride of the year.
