    So I have to burn a minimum of 3 weeks vacation between the end of september and the first of the year. I had planned a nice 3 week vacation riding up through the rockies, into canada, new england, down the east coast and finding my way back to Texas, but that was all revolving around a wedding in NY I was supposed to attend. Sine I wont be attending the wedding now, and it looks like I wont be able to break free until the start of October, the Northern run is probably out.

    So give me some idea's :supergrin:

    I was thinking of maybe making a south Texas trip, then work my way over to new orleans for a night, over to the keys for a week of fishing the flats, etc.

    So, any good ideas for a motorcycle trip where I could do some fishing, or shooting, or catch some good live music etc?

    Am I wrong in thinking that the passes up through CO, UT, WY and MT would be closed by then?

    That was my fear. My last trip up to Red Lodge there was 4ft of snow off the shoulder of the road. Wouldn't be too much fun getting stranded.

    Northern Arkansas has lots of curves and beautiful views. Just try not to look like Ned Beatty and you'll be fine.

    Mississippi Blues Trail - to include Memphis and a little poker at Tunica and/or Vicksburg - should be a gas and it's definitely warmer than Colorado in the winter.

    Then up through Appalacians, Tail of the Dragon, western Virginia in October should all be on fire by then.
