Whats your big ride for 2021?

They say, if you write it has a better chance of coming true because you will plan for it. So here, I'll start.

Idaho,Colorado,Utah,Arizona,New Mexico, and California in a 2 to 3 week window in August...thats my idea at the moment....

Whats yours?

Just ordered my national park annual pass and plan to do something similar as yours but probably in reverse. Leaving mid June for northern California, Southern Utah, Colorado Rockies, Idaho and back home. I've always wanted to see the red rock region and really take the time to explore. Been thinking about it all winter and all that's left is to get the shot.

I know some guys who are planning a ride in late august early september that starts in Lakeview goes south to Cali and crosses back and forth over the mountains a few times before heading heading across Nevada..Utah and into Colorado ending in least 10 days more like 14..then 2 days home...I haven't decided if I will go yet as the plans aren't final yet...
a couple of smaller 4 day rides to Kamiah Idaho and Baker City Oregon are annual trips that I don't plan on missing again this year...

Cavalcade big ride

Plans are for a trip from here to Tuscon then on to Charleston S.C. Going on the Southern route to get the best weather.Ride is a just bought 86 Suzuki Cavalcade dresser.Google it. Suzukis goldwing. Just finishing new rotors, pads and all caliper seals. Plus fluid changes. What I'm needing is a pull along small camping trailer. Anyone have one for sale? Even a project.

I remember that bike, but when I hear "Cavalcade" this is what I think of.

Hopefully a couple after none last year.

One is down to southern Oregon, north/central CA, NW Nevada, back into SE Oregon. 8-10 days.

Far NE Oregon, SE WA, into north Idaho/Montana, back across to home. ~5 days.

Hope springs a kernel at least one works out!

I have two rides planned for the summer.

Early June, leaving Spokane heading to San Diego by way of norcal highway 3, highway 36, lost coast highway, either heading down or coming back. The opposite way, we will drop down through Montana's bitterroot using highway 93 south to Vegas and then trek to San Diego probably with a stop for a day or two at Havasu or somewhere else on the Colorado River to ski and screw around.

Late August, 5 days on a dirt bike ride, probably a little bit Idaho BDR, Continental Divide.

And the Vintage motocross scene is heating up for 2021 with my first race the Racer X Boise Inter-Am in April. A pic from the 2019 race.

I'm planning to make it up the Dalton to Prudhoe Bay... I've planned it since my solo up in '17, since I didn't make the full Monte on that trip. One of these years it is gonna happen.

My big plans for this year are the same as every year. I want my bike and my body to look just like they did after the ride as they did when I started it.

Tacoma to Grand Rapids MI on my 1200s; probably late August. Gotta get it to our new home. I'm not sure on the route yet, but I'm going to try to take it easy on myself.

Paraphrasing the airplane folks - any ride that ends in the garage is a good one.

Putting together a 3-day loop with Ashfoot in Jun/July-ish - we haven't decided whether Northern Cali or Southeast Oregon yet, but either way we'll have fun!! Might have one or two others come along too.

The biggie though (still in pencil), is a solo from Newport to Boston in Aug/Sep following Hwy 20, then back aiming at places and people I want to see (currently working on that part of the plan). Figuring on 3-4 weeks, but not locking into any sort of rigid schedule in either direction.
