Awakening from Hibernation

Feb 23, 2010 View Comments by

With fall yard work, the holidays, and year-end business paperwork out of the way, I’m starting to plan a few trips for the coming season. I’m also looking forward to  trying out some new luggage mounted on the KLR™650 that I got late last summer. It has an oversized luggage rack on it that should come in quite handy for mounting the large camping bag that I’ll be testing soon. The bike should be perfect for mixing two of my favorite activities: camping and riding the backroads.

I was wondering if any other RoadRUNNER subscribers would be interested in using RoadRUNNER’s facebook page to plan some informal group camping trips. I see far too few fellow motorcycle campers when I’m out, and it might be nice to let each other know when and where we are going to be camping, so that others can join in the fun.

Please post some comments, and maybe the idea can turn into something worthwhile. If the camaraderie shared at the annual RoadRUNNER Touring Weekend can be duplicated on a smaller scale at campgrounds across the country, some great times and new friendships are sure to result. Punxsutawney Phil is predicting an early spring this year, and it doesn’t get any more scientific than that, so let’s start planning!
