Alright ladies and gents....and Cheapbastard...hehe...i have a proposition for all ya ll in the good ole States...

Who here on these Triumph forums would welcome a fellow traveling Triumph owner into their place without meeting them?

You might ask why.... good question...well it has been a plan in the working of mine and the the girlfriend to do a ride across the country next summer. She is graduating from UCLA and wants to do a road trip for a couple months come late spring/summer.... We have places in Washington, Arizona, Texas, Minnesota, Tennessee, and other places that we have friends or relatives.

I have been on this site for a good time and i think it would be a blast to meet some of you faukers...haha... We plan on renting out our place and just making the best of it till we get tired or run out of road...We want to cover lots of the country and see most of the usual tourist hot spots...We want to keep it light/ minimal baggage and document the journey(via blog and photos) along the way.

As of right now....there isn't a definite route, that will take shape in a few months. I just know that it would be nice getting valuable info from the locals like yourselves. Who knows we might meet some new friends along the way....

Let us know what ya ll think...Thanks Dano...

hey there...any time your in NZ give me a call.....thought you would have had a few takers for your road trip in the states.......thats a pretty poor response from a group of supposed enthusiasts......i have been involved in Flying light aircraft for a long time and many people do similar things all over the world....why should bikes be any different??

confused.......

Dano,

Keep me on your list, just in caseyou hit the St. Louis area. We have the world's greatest brewery here as well as a giant, silver croquet wicket that you can go up in (arch) besides, we have a huge amount of super twisty roads because St. Louis is about 30 minutes away from the start of the Ozark Mountains.....much fun!

Anywho, the wife and I are thinking about selling the house (just got a new job and want something closer to it) so we are looking at condos and whatnot. We should be able to scrounge up a bed for you guys, should you head this way.

Good luck on your trip planning. I have done some epic trips, so I know the excitement involved in planning it.

Cheers,
Ski

If you find yourself in need of service and you're near Little Rock, I've had good luck with Little Rock BMW/Triumph and it's easy to find just of I-630 near the capital. Have you checked the Dealer forum?

I'd offer you a place to rest on your trip, but El Dorado is in the middle of nowhere with very few roads worth riding in this part of the state. Northern Arkansas, now that's a different story.
