What the likelihood of completing these goals…. quite high I hope!  None of these are to terribly difficult, if I chose to make some time.  But, time is always an issue, I either make time to do this or let life get in the way.  Hopefully I will choose right this year.Capture

Ride the Appalachian Waters Scenic Byway –  This is one of the roads on my motorcycle bucket list.  It would be a weekend trip for us if we left early on both Saturday and Sunday and we would have an overnight stay with my Mother.

Take at least 1 long trip with wife – A few years ago we planned a trip that would take us to Niagara Falls, across Canada to the Harley Davidson Museum, south to Kansas to visit our daughter and then home.  Life conspired to prevent that trip, but something like that should be on order for this year.

Iron butt 1000 – I-81 to south of Knoxville ,TN and back in 24 hours or less.

Practice more – work on my slow speed skills, tighten up my left and right circles.

Ride more miles then 2014 – between all the bikes last year we had a bit over 7500 miles.  That should not be too hard to overcome just if I commute on the bikes  a little more often. Oh, and take the long way home in the evenings. The way I keep track of my season mileage is through the “B” trip meter.  Early each year I reset the “B” meter to 0 so I know the total for the year while using the “A” meter for anything else.

Attend a HOG Rally for at least 1 day – Depending on where the rallies for VA/WV/MD/DE/PA are I should be able to make that happen.

C and O Canal – knock out a bunch of those stops this year.  If you have read this blog for a while you noticed I have attempted to document those stops that are accessible via motorcycle.  I did not do that many last year.

I am sure there are other things that I should add to the list but the more I add the more I might regret not completing. 🙂

    Don’t you just love planning the next season’s adventures? We’ll be doing that soon as well. Will have to check out that Appalachian Waters Byway next time we’re up in West “by god” Virginia. (-:

    I’d like to do an Iron Butt Saddle Sore 1,000 this year too.
