It is time to put some miles on the Silver Wing!  Last trip was with the Goldwing and I try and rotate them, nice guy that I am!!!

I am planning on leaving from Wickenburg on May 4 and riding up to Holbrook, AZ.  A couple of nights in a motel while I explore the above and ride some really pretty roads in NE Arizona!!!  Should be a fun trip and I will be avoiding the super slab as much as possible!

Will post some pictures when I return!!!  And a critique on my new Cee Bailey windshield...

Duh I forgot the link:

Glenn,

Have a great time and hope all goes well. I have yet to do an overnighter on any of my bikes since I have been in California, about 20 years, but hope to do some long riding one day. Are the temps getting up there in Az already? Hope it stays nice.

Thanks all! Jeff, I find that riding solo while at first daunting actually is quite fun. My route, my stopping points, my choice of motels etc. And most of all, MY speed. I learned all this during my Yosemite trip a couple of years ago. And while I enjoy traveling with friends, sometimes being alone is nice too! I was with a group of Goldwing riders in Death Valley in February and while fun, most of them were only concerned with how FAST they could ride through the park! 75-85 MPH in 45-55 MPH zones. Bailed out and rode at my own pace and could explore at MY leisure. Much more relaxing and fun.

Guess I am starting to understand John Grinsel eh? affraid

Have a great ride. i love the scenery in NE Arizona. You will be close to the painted desert as well. A caution, be sure to pull off when you see a motel esp anywhere on the Res. They are far between. Lucky you, I'm jealous! Good luck.

Thanks Greysilver! And ignore my harangue; if anyone wants to meet up somewhere along the way just PM me and we can work something out!!! I would not have a problem with company!

My point above was that I am going to take my time and "SEE" stuff. Not just see how many miles I can do in a day Mad

I hear you Glenn about riding solo compared to group. Several years ago I rode with a Burgman group out of Dallas to Colorado. It was an epic 3000 mile trip and remains as one of my favorite. We were riding from Durango to Silverton on the Million Dollar Highway and were all chatting on our Chatterbox's and someone asked if anyone wanted to stop in Silverton? I was pretty chilly riding the mountain passes and piped up that I'd like to stop and take a break and get some hot coffee. Either the ride leader didn't hear me on the radio or the fact that no one else wanted to stop; we just kept on riding past Silverton. It certainly wasn't a deal breaker as the trip was incredible but sometimes I'd like to stop and take a picture, read a historic sign or check out old hardware stores or funky coffee shops. I have to remember this when Deb and I ride together and ask her if she wants to stop and smell the roses. Good luck on your upcoming trip. Got to ride your area a little some years ago when Deb and I trailered our Burgman 400 out to San Diego and stopped in Sedona on the way back home. Except for the heavy afternoon traffic, we enjoyed our ride up Oak Creek Canyon.
