      Aside from the daily work commute:

      Slimy Crud Run in about a month. Good times.
      Headed to COTA for F1 - not much fun riding planned for this one. Just down and back.
      Smokey Mtn/Dragon trip. 3.5 days planned, looking about 2300 miles - slightly less than we did last year.
      Indy RedBull GP in August. Thursday through Sunday, always a good time.

      If you are planning on passing through central IL, we can meet for beer.

      Phase I of my honeymoon is flying out to San Fran, renting a bike and riding up the Pacific Coast highway with a stop in Mendocino and probably some national parks.

      Other than that, maybe Indy GP, if I ever get my VFR to ride normal again.

      as supposed to do Sturgis this year with my brother for his 40th, but I have to go to my brother in law's wedding.

      next year is already on the books, so anything else that comes up can F-off.

      I have a 700 mile weekend trip coming up in May to Northern Arizona that will start here in Phoenix, travel Eastbound to Show Low into the Petrified Forest and then move Westerly to Flagstaff, onto Prescott and then home.. taking off on a Friday morning with my bride and two other couples and then returning Sunday evening.

      I also have a trip tentatively scheduled for July to go to the US Moto GP at Mazda Speedway.. we will see how that pans out.

      I was going to do a trip to Africa with a local charity here this summer to deliver shoes that the kids need in Milaui and Liberia over a two week period but that was over-ruled by family summer vacation. Hopefully it will happen next year since it is a good cause and a great excuse to see Africa.

      There is also some talk of riding to Cabo this fall via Ensenada and San Diego but that will be dependent upon vacation scheduling and Christmas plans back East with my family.

      If you are doing Baja cross the border through Tecate instead. Easier to enter and you stay away from the Tijuana traffic. Also head straight down to San Felipe stay away from the toll roads and take as much dirt roads as you can. I love riding in Baja; desert roads, beaches and beer!
