This was the trip that really kicked off the itch. A bunch of friends and I spent a week making our way the long scenic way to do tail of the dragon, then got chased by rain the whole way back.
I’d done solo trips, and a few overnights. But for some reason… probably the company, this trip was the one where it all clicked.
Riding without a time table or spelled out goals was the point. It was just…. generally enjoyable.
This was also the year I realized that I should probably quit screwing around and get a bigger bike. I was on a road glide later that year.
At some point I’ll caption these and try to remember more details. I have a ton of photos from random things that need sorted, uploaded, documented and shared.
