Thumbs up Riding in all 50 States

Crossed into Maine today to complete riding in all 50 states.

Took 46 years, who knows how many miles and lost track of all the motorcycles.

Just something I always wanted to do.

Now What????

but when I do I prefer BMW's.

Re: Riding in all 50 States

Congratulations!

I hope to get there someday, but as I stand now I'm about 37 states behind you....

Now that you've got them out of the way you can go work on the remaining provinces (and one territory) for your next goal.

A superb accomplishment. Congratulations!

I'm curious: How did you do Hawaii - I assume a rental?

Congrats Doug, way to go!

If you aren't good for anything else, you can always serve as a bad example.

Re: Riding in all 50 States

I guess you're going to take care of Canada this next week so I think Mexico is next. They have 32 States down there including the two in Baja

Got the District of Columbia but when I developed the idea of riding all 50 (the wee youngster I was) I did not even know the US had Posessions.
