Come on up to the Great White North! The water's great this time of year. Especially if you like it HARD.

No, but really...

There's so many places to see in that part of the country, I don't even know where to begin. Can you give us a little more information about what you like to see and do?

Idea #1 - Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce Canyon, UT 12 and 24 over Escalante Grand Staircase and through Capitol Reef, over to Moab and through Arches, then down the eastern edge of UT back into AZ through Monument Valley.

Idea #2 - Ride to CA headed for San Luis Obispo. Head up the Pacific Coast Highway. Go all the way to Leggett on the PCH. You can do the PCH in 2 if you push it, but allow 3-4 days to enjoy it. Connect with 101 and go up to Highway 36, ride that (144 miles of pure motorcycling bliss). 36 to 89 to Tahoe, over to Reno and down 395 back to SoCal and then back to AZ.

If anything else pops into me head I'll let you know.

I think a bunch of guys from AZ and NV from the Goldwing forum are planning Death Valley next weekend.

Sure Garry! With all this global warmin' a goin' on, it's been annexed.
