Default Last Ride !

Hey all, my 2018 FLHC and I need to get one last big ride done ! I've ridden for over 30 years, and I'd like to go from western Virginia to the West Coast. At age 62 I don't see many more riding years to come for reasons left untold. I'd like to visit as many as the Harley riders as I could, in as many states as can be done . Any help, suggestions, plans, and people who want to offer help will be a great help.. All I can say is, Ride On ! Bob

Would like to catch up with you. If taking I77 let me know when and where. Wytheville would be cool if it could happen on a weekend. You are sounding like me with the vagueness...

I not trying to be vague, just have the idea, no plan yet. Yes David, Rt. 50 sounds good. And so does I77 nobodyknowsme. Old 66 the mother Road is always in my thoughts Oddman. Maybe that's what I need to do, all of them, a chip at a time. If you all could each come up with a quick plan or thoughts, no dates firm, PM me. Let's see what can be worked out, maybe combine a couple. Thanks all. Bob

Rain, snow or sine, I am like Gumby as long as it is on the weekend. There is a dealership in Wytheville.

You are going to get a lot of GOOD suggestions.

I am not prying. But I am of similar age (close enough) and got tired of riding around the USA/Canada. So now besides riding locally daily, I have my own riding club and ride with others.

Do you really have to give it up 100%? I'd hate to hear that pal.

Have lived in the west all of my 60 years, if coming west you must ride Northern California, up in the redwood forest, Highway 1 north of the bay area are some of the best roads a motorcyclist could ask for.
Hope you are able to continue riding for many years to come.
