Slide show from last summer's motorcycle trip

We rode across the continent and back, well Cherie flew to Denver and flew home from Vancouver.

Gerhard and Cherie

That was a very nice slide show. Good photography, good food and a funky old world, isn't it. Thanks for the reminder.

Oooh, Corvairs. I had a few of those. You could get them for about $100 back then (thank you Ralph Nader) In fact I once had a 'van' version that was a lot of fun on a similar trip many years ago.

That's one nice looking Bike, by the way. BMW sure has changed their look over the years.

Anyway, thanks for that. Looks like you all had a great time.

The fun way to really see the world.  You went to all my favorite places to go exploring and biking.  Now I have to really get my bike converted to a  trike!

Happyu biking

we usually take one large trip on the bike every summer.  It is amazing how many more people you meet when you are travelling on a motorcycle than car, everyone from kids to 90 year olds approaches and engages in conversation or tells you a story.  We had a great time in Colorado but after 4 days Cherie started suffering from altitude sickness so she gave up on photography for a few days and we skipped the planned trip to the Grand Canyon, by the the time we made it to Barstow she was feeling better again.  

I have never owned a Corvair but always liked them.  I like the RT because it is a big enough bike to go touring on but isn't monstrously heavy.

@Dabrownman have you ever considered a Spyder by Bombardier, they look like a well engineered alternative to a trike.

I have kind of loosely planned this summer's trip and it is planned to go through northern Quebec and then take a ferry over the St. Lawrence to Rimouski, then explore the Gaspe Bay region, south through New Brunswick, Maine and into Massachusetts to visit my brother in Quincy and back home.
