Of Course. Even when I don't attend, I still make the trip to say hi.

Mid July, huh, anyone at the MOA Rally in Salt Lake last year? If the weather is anything like last year, you'll be missing me...gawdawful heat. except of course the part I was at high elevations.
I left the rally 4AM the next morning after I arrived.

I reckon it's probably nice at the Top O'.
Just getting there from SoCal that sucks...waaahhh!

What? Drive up the coast to OR or WA then across to MT and down to TOR. Very little super hot riding.

...yeah, there are ways, I usually have a week or so to make a loop.
SoCal north to WA and over to CO is a good 4 days at least for me.

missing my vacation last summer made for a really long year. Not going for a motorcycle ride all year was just adding insult to injury. I'll try harder this summer.

Why would you ride to South Dakota and then down to Globe?

You're really reaching for new routes...!
