Next years ride!

Well next years ride is set. I am planning on riding down to the south tip of South America on my KLR. It is a charity ride for MS. I plan to leave in Sept 2014 and take 4 months to complete.

Check out my blog at www.AmazingRideforMS.ca

Seattle 5 Sept
Portland 8 Sept
San Francisco 10 Sept
Shafter 11 Sept
LA 12 Sept
San Diego 15 Sept
Phoenix 17 Sept



Thanks

Re: Next years ride!

Garry you look to going just a little south of Austin Tx but if you need a place to sleep or do repairs or tires on the bike I can help with all of it.

Ride safe my friend.

Thumbs up Re: Next years ride!

I have always said that you start planning your next big ride the day you get back from the last one! Pick up my new RT in the spring and am planning to do the 2nd Annual Battlefield Memorial workers Rally in Gettysburg PA. in May, the MOA Rally in Hamburg in July and the BMW Motorrad Weekend at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Raceway in Ontario, Canada in August! Still gotta find something in June and September and may head to Deals gap to give the new bike a ringing out!
