Busa & Vstrom ride to the Arctic Cirlce

Over 10k miles in 16 days a dad and his son ride from Texas to the Arctic Circle. This is the stuff that memories are made of

Ride story and pics here

Cool, they had started a thread on TWTex back in summer and never finished the ride report due to time restraints. It is good to see the completed report now. Kudos to them for doing this awesome trip. :notworthy

I'm sorry call me a ***** or whatever you want but this brings me to tears. It makes me miss riding so much more than anyone could imagine. Those were the things I longed for. I loved travelling. I loved to just go off and ride forever. It wasn't all to common for me to put my suit on and ride off for a few days to somewhere I had never been. I have ridden in Texas (of course), New Mexico, Colorado, Louisanna, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennesse, Missouri, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Kentucky and Virginia. Reading something like that just gets the best of me and I cannot control it. It was hard for me to watch "Long Way Round" right after my accident. Hands down to them for the great trip and the accomplishment that they made cause that is what motorcycling was ment to be.

Man, that sounds awsome. I am taking a trip to Oregon and down to CA passing through Las Vegas on my 06 10r this May. Anyone wants to go? It will be a Friday evening leave and back by Sat or Sunday the following week.
How often does anyone get to do this? Once a lifetime, maybe.

You have been to places on a bike that 95% of rider have never been.

For the ones that hasn't travel out of town or state much, too bad is all I can say.

Yup, a Strom is a do-it-all bike. Not sure I'd want to be the one on the Busa, though.

I've only got 6 states under my tires to date..
(TX, NM, AZ, LA, AR, MO)

...but I'm hoping to add at least 7 more before 2007 is over!
(UT & CO in June, MS, AL, GA, FL sometime in the Spring)

This story really hits hard to home for me as well. The thought that I will never get to ride with my dad ever again really makes me tear up. We were planning on riding to cali, and riding the coastal highway all the way up to north california and back.. Its a shame I will never experience riding beside him ever again. Riding bikes is pretty much all me and my dad ever did. Sun up to sun down just about every weekend after he got his r1.

Awesome trip they took. I would love to go on a long ride like that someday.
