Did the ID BDR last summer in August.  Great ride, ended with over 1300 miles.  Highly recommended.

Plan to do another BDR next summer but have AK in the back of my mind as well.  Would be my 4th trip there;  there's always more to see and experience.

Plus, I've got to get more single track riding in next summer here in the Hills.

All plans are unfortunately health dependent for me.

Moab in April is always interesting to me!    Had an blast out there again last April.

RyanI has been talking about a $1000 scooter road trip somewhere.    So I picked up a 2001 Reflex, just in case, lol.

I was also thinking Moab in April or May. My thought was to camp/boondock in one or more of the many places to camp for free.

I love that scooter ride idea as well
Did I ever tell you: " I HATE MUD!" ?

Someone go into details about this scooter ride.
Does it have to be $1000? (im cheap)
CC limitation?

I have about 6 of these buggers I have to do something with and this may be inspiration.

Tannerc, are you looking to sell any of those? I might have a place for a couple.
Whos in for a big trip? Alsaka? Moab (again)? Baja?

I don't think its much more than an idea at this point.     Both Ryan and I have Honda 90s but he now has a Helix and I have a Reflex.     Not sure a 90 would keep up with such high powered machines, ha!    Feel free to throw in ideas.

I actually went over the budget and paid $1100 for my Reflex, but I was really struggling to find anything sub 1000 unless they were total basket cases.

Turns out the Reflex is really pretty damn fun to ride.    Cruising around 2 up on it works really well.

And it matches my truck.

Ive got a 125m running donor engine laying on the garage floor at the moment, that should get me up to 58 MPH.
CDI
plus electric start
plus pull start
plus H/L range
plus.... reverse?
now all I need is the time to get it in there..
time is the limiting factor in this little venture.
