WHAT IS YOUR DREAM RIDE? If you could do it, what would your Dream Ride be?

Imagine you have the time. You have plenty of money for this. You have the bike. The wifey, husband, Sig O, GF, Dog, Goldfish, Pet Rat, whatever wants to go. The weather forecast is low 70’s and mostly sunny all day for a few weeks. Hey, we’re imaging this, so lets say this weather sticks with you the entire ride. Where would your first gut reaction take you? What would you listen to on the way? Where would you stop to eat? Camping or fine hotels? How long would you stay out? Think about it and share it with all of us. Writing down your dreams and talking about them is the first step to making them happen. Send your dream ride here.
