Default Where have you been on your Harley?

Show us where you have been and any info you can give on the area.

I'll start.
Picture is Route 66 Amboy CA. Picked it up in Barstow CA and rode it to Williams AZ. Great ride on a weekend. Folks in 50's era cars getting their kicks on Route 66. Nostalgic ride but pavement is rough in some areas.

How can I resist the opportunity to post some Route 66 pics ?!?


The Rainbow Bridge in Kansas is a great photo op.

And to me, The Blue Swallow in Tucumcari, NM is just about the pinnacle of the entire ride for me.



I have plans to complete my remaining NM, AZ, and CA portion this year.

The end of the road at Kalae, Hawai`i (The Big Island). The southernmost point in the United States.

When my health was better...my shoulders have been crapping out after 2-3 hours...we went on a 10 hour, 550 mile overnight ride to Ft. Davis in 2013. We've done long overnight rides since but haven't done any any at all the past 2 years.




Ft. Davis Texas.

I've been to ALL 50 states, most on a H-D but not all of them. (Rented in Hawaii).

Northwest to AK, in 2000.
Northeast to Halifax, NS in '80.
Southwest to San Diego, CA in '81.
Southeast to Key Largo, FL in '75.
Topped Pike's Peak, CO in '04 (before it was paved to the top)
Mt. Evans, CO in '95

My wife's favorite touring/scenic riding is in the Utah canyons and I think mine have been though Glacier Nat'l Park, MT and up through Warterton Park (Canadian side) to Banff Park and to the glaciers.

My next BIG trip (maybe 2019) will be back to Nova Scotia for the Cabot Trail and then on to Newfound Land (via the eastern ferry) and that trip will be on a Tri-Glide if all goes as planned.

Pulled up next to the tour bus in Glacier. August 2016. Trip included the Beartooth, Yellowstone, the Tetons and 3 hours of motorcycle nirvana following the Salmon River in Idaho.
