In September another hooligan run to IA, MN, WI but only for 2 days. You know, do not stay anywhere long enough and you wont be caught Smile

Only got three multi day trips in this year. All 3 or 4 day long weekend trips. Shortest was about 500 miles and the longest was about 1500 miles or so. I got a few long day rides in as well including two SS1000 rides this fall.

I clicked "No", but if I count my move back to the States then it would be a yes.  Just wasn't what I would call a "site seeing" trip, more of a "point A to point B" trip.

 Other than the usual weekend trips to SD, IE, and Visalia the "official" rides were WCRM, and BTSF. That plus commuting put over 15K on the VFR this year.

WCRM and BTSF (B4theSnowFlies), plus some of the weekend trips mentioned above. I use the cage for commuting though. M.Brane has passed me on mileage between our two VFRs.

I spent 3 weeks on a trip to NorCal--while I didn't ride every day (my wife met me in SF for a few days), I had a great time.  It was my longest bike trip to date.  I got to visit several ST.N'ers along the way Smile

Other than that, I did several 2- and 3-day business trips on the bike (means I can write off the accommodations Wink ).

Only one and not even on my bike.  Rented an HD while on summer vacation and visited Maine for a few days.  Plenty of great longish weekend rides though, so still a good year.

I did three multi-day rides this year, and I gotta say I feel very lucky and happy with how the weather was working in my favor this year. Best ever tours on that front. First was the last ten days of April running new to me roads in the SouthEast, and only one real rain-day, where I was riding with major deadly tornadoes popping up all around during that 10 day tornado dodging ride:
http://www.sport-touring.net/forums/index.php/topic,62493.0.html

Second week+ ride was a 3,500 mile loop of California. Just a little spritz leaving Los Angeles on the first day out over Cerro No Arreste, major scary lighting storm accompanied which is really pretty rare in So. Cal. Visiting Georgia rider who I met on the first ride must have brought that weather with him  Razz. First part of the second day was miserable and Drizzly going up Hwy 1 outta San Francisco, but the weather broke to sunny skies just as we reached Stewarts Point where I was about to turn inland. The whole rest of the trip had magnificent weather hovering in the 70's for a 9 day tour of California hitting a bajillion favorite twisty roads.

Then there was the annual B4theSnowFlies ride to the SouthSierras end of October, Three Rivers and whatnot. This was the 7th run for this event and the weather was absolutely perfect! Even though Bluepoof thinks I'm making this up and all the pics were photochopped.  Razz
