I'm excited to discover this subforum exists!
I've done quite a bit of solo touring. Next April or May, depending on how early Spring comes, I'll find out how comfortable I am being alone for a long ride. To kick off my retirement from my present occupation, I'm going to take 6 weeks and tour through some of the western states on my Thruxton. It'll be what you see in the pic, plus a tank bag, and maybe a small screen.
My plan is to fairweather camp and motel it otherwise. I'm going take my time and cherry pick the best roads I can find on Butler Maps and other sites and zig zag my way wherever the wind blows me. I want to revisit some old favourite places and see some sights I haven't seen (Zion, Grand Canyon for example). It'll just be a process of picking approximate destinations and trying to link up favourable weather forecasts with good moto roads.
I don't really have much of a choice on the solo part, because I don't know anybody who is able to drop everything for 6 - 8 weeks and would want to do a ride like this. But I'm also happy to meet people to ride with along the way. It'd be especially fun to meet some of you, even if just for a day ride passing through.
