anyone planing some road trips this year?

i really wanna get out and do some 1-3 day road trips this year, and some week long ones too on the goldwing.

looking to hear others suggestions.

just as a referance i plan to CRUISE which means +/- 15mpr from the posted speed limit.

i really want to get out this year and take the wing for some journeys.

You'll like Banff.....beautiful scenery....we'll do a little side run to Lake Louise Nice nightlife too Really have to watch out for elk....even right in Banff, they wander the streets, in the fall at least half dozen people get gored by them.

Average temperature in Banff is 22C about 72F in late June early July. It can get as low as 7C or about 45F in the evenings. Nothing that leather riding gear can't handle.
