A lot of folks in the Northwest do. Every fall (last week of Sept or 1st week in October), we have an event in Anacortes called the "Oyster Run". It's specifically a motorcyclists get-together. The weather wasn't very good last year (wet and windy) so "only" about 15,000 bikes showed up. It's more typically 25 to 30,000.

The vast majority are Harleys, along with a lot of other V-twin Harley clones. I've never seen a Norton, just one or two BSAs and 30 or so modern Triumphs.

As a full timer, when I park the rig we explore a radius of 150 miles +/- on my Harley Ultra Classic. I garage my bike inside my Class A. I am a fair weather rider. I avoid the snow and ice for warmer temperatures. When caught in the rain, I search out a restaurant or bar to wait out the storm.

I haul mine in a 30 ft enclosed trailer then ride it at every stop even just for going to dinner. My mind wants to ride to Sturgis but my body says it is never going to happen. Spine isn't what it used to be. Or I should say it isn't all original parts. I think that as long as you can ride at all then that is all that matters. I do poker runs, teddy bear runs, etc. When I can't hold the Ultra up any more then I will either trike it or add a side car.

Side car, that's where I'll go when the time comes, old school.

Side cars are pretty luxurious nowadays. Like riding in a limo.

All the time we have a motorcycle lift out back for our Street Glide.

However most of our riding friends travel too so we often pull a trailer with 5 Harley's in it.

Just got back from Key West and our annual Sturgis SD reservations are made already.

We will ride Bear-tooth Pass and tour Yellowstone again the week prior to the Rally.

I want a side car for my dog (Lab). She would love riding in it and I'm sure she would wear a leather helmet and goggles.

Until last month, all there was to ride was my '06 FLHX, which I spend many a day on taking 8-10 hour rides around NY, MA, VT, etc.

...or you could try out the ONLY factory-built sidecar rig on the market today:



We've had ours for about 3 years now and it's the most fun bike I've ever owned!

Nope, gave up the habit years ago when I was concerned about "being cool." We ride Honda Goldwings. More comfortable and we can actually hold a conversation without competing with the engine noise! I can't tell you how nice it is to ride beside a stream and actually HEAR the water! "Loud pipes save lives?" Nope, defensive riding, utilizing the proper riding gear, and educating the public about motorcycle awareness saves lives! I'm a surgical RN at a level 1 trauma center and we don't see less Harley riders in trauma because of the loud pipes!

Ride safe!!
