First Ride of 2011 March 16 2011

It is not the Farthest I will ride this year.
It is not the Coldest Ride I will have this year.
It will not be the Wettest ride this year.

But by far is was the most Full Filling, after 3
1/2 moths of not riding it was the best therapy you could pay for.
I feel Reborn !



 

American Motorcyclist Association members select America’s 15 best motorcycling roads

“When it comes to the best places in the country to ride motorcycles, no group of riders is more knowledgeable than AMA members,” said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman. “No group puts in more miles, samples more asphalt or rides more roads.
“By publicizing our favorite roads in American Motorcyclist magazine, AMA members will seek out these destinations and bring tourism dollars into local communities through the purchase of food, fuel, lodging and more,” Dingman said.
The editors of American Motorcyclist magazine used the 230,000-member, non-profit association’s website, AmericanMotorcyclist.com, to accept nominations and tally votes for members’ favorite roads. Nearly 100 roads made the ballot, and the magazine published the top 15 roads in the April issue as well as a list of “honorable mentions.”
“Some of these roads are familiar to motorcyclists, and others may not be,” said Managing Editor James Holter. “They all have one thing in common: They’re the best roads in the country, as chosen by AMA members.”
A countdown of the top 15 routes:
15. Washington Route 129 and Oregon Route 3, Clarkston, Wash., to Enterprise, Ore.
14. Ohio Route 170, Calcutta to Poland.
