Am already thinking about next year. My plan is to ride to Michigan by the fastest route and visit my relatives. Then, up into Canada for the ride home. On the return leg I will dawdle and take all the back roads I can find. Will drop down into Montana via Glacier. Then back down thru Idaho (can't decide if I like it or Eastern Utah better). Then over the Sierras and home. I can't wait
