Sturgis for a week, then on up to visit a friend in Republic WA, then hopefully west to the coast, depends on how long I can get away. Would need a minimum of 3 weeks to do it.

Even early June might be pushing it trying to cross some of the northern mountain passes. I would study that carefully. I am by no means familiar with that area but just a thought.

Maybe not a dream because we ride there often. Eastern TN, GA, NC ect. For many years every bike we have had ,made a ride to Deals gap. We like riding that whole area and always will. The Missing Link bridge is opening on the Foot Hills parkway and after a 52 year wait we want to see it. May sound silly to some but Granddaughter wants a dragon sticker on the new sidecar. I told her it had to earn it so we are taking the sidecar to the dragon end of May. 2 week ride.
In June or July we are using Payton's Handi-cap van as a chase vehicle. 3 grand children and at least 1 son are making a road trip following the sidecar to Williamstown KY. to visit the ARK. Two can ride in the sidecar at a time wife on the bike with me and Grandchildren swapping off riding. Going to be fun only an 1,100 mile round trip. We plan to use up a week.

I think we will head back to Colorado this summer, Pagosa Springs area looked interesting or maybe back to Buena Vista or Durango.

Well.... my son told me to make a hole for a trip with him this summer. Not a clue where we will go, maybe back to Smoky area? But it will be a great trip
God bless

These might not qualify as dream rides, but heading to Key West and Daytona Bike Week like usual. Our fall trip will be new for us. The group will be heading to Milwaukee to pick up the last 2 bikes, then heading to Cooper Harbor. The ride will take us around Lake Superior before heading back to Alabama. Plan to be gone about 10 days.

Default Here's mine,,,

June 9th, 2019,,,
I will leave my home in Hopewell VA and head for the West coast,,, this was a dream of my Dad's and the ninth would be his 90th birthday if he were still here with us. We lost Dad in 13 at the age of 83,,, just before his 84th birthday. He rode bikes from around 16 years old to around 81 years old.
I plan on taking 5 to 6 weeks with my 18 Anniversary Ultra Limited and ride. I will be turning 60 on February 2nd 2019, and this was why I bought the 18 as my other 13 bikes may not have been up to the challenge. Ten of those bikes are from Dad's collection and three are my older bikes.
I've got relatives in AZ, TX, CA, and WI so I hope to visit folks along the way.
Any tips/advice is always welcome.
