  • Hi: My name is Tom and I drive a 2005 Ultra classic. We are planning a trip (not real soon) from Soo Michigan across to Oregon. I figured there will be a wealth of info. here so thought I would join. Looking forward to learning from other riders experiences.

    Thanks Steppenwolf, that's a long story, see if I can shorten it, back in 2008 gas got up to about 4$, I moved from B'ham, Al. to a small town (Winfield) & since I was single I wanted cheap Transportation so I found a dealer that sold Scooters bought a 250 Hyosung, helmet & rain suit, tried it out in the parking lot with both feet sticking out & got them to deliver it, learned to ride in yard, about 80 miles away (lost Pic. of it in a pc crash) after about a yr. I wanted something bigger, then a Yahama T-Max 500 after another 1 or 2 Yrs. went to 2010 in 4-2011 HD XL1200C so 32,000 miles I'm happy. taking longest trip this wk-end to SC with group I just joined. (ComBatVets). I'm 79.
