I met J.P. Rodman at the Brooklyn invitational last year. I was talking to him about his sick ass trike and all the custom paint detail, cuz thats his thing. Anyway, He told me they were throwing a weekend chopper party in Raton where he lives. I do a long run every summer so i figured, shit, this is it.

Im taking two weeks, heading out from NJ down to Virginia, through west Virginia, Kentucky, northern Arkansas, and across northern Oklahoma. Then running around northern New Mexico and Colorado, then back. Im going to try to camp most of the time, but when the weather gets shitty its trucker motels all the way. I'm riding an injected sportster, gas every 100 miles.

Any one want to meet up on this? have a place to crash on the way? any spots I need to see? Drop a line.

Gotta wait n see how the wife is doing. If I can get away I think I'll ride the 40 Scout over. It's only about 140 miles from the house. If you are going to ride the enchanted circle I generally try to camp at Columbine Canyon Campground, And stop and pay my respects at the Vietnam War Memorial.

Me and a group of dudes will be leaving from Kansas and heading straight out should be a stellar ride but if you have breakdowns or need places to crash I've got friends the entire way.

What day are you riding in? Ill be headed across northern Oklahoma, If your crew wants to drop down and try to link up I think Ill be taking US64.

I can definitely use help finding a place to stay most of the way. If you know anyone close to the rout I described in the first post send me a DM with info.

I'm doing a sick flake/candy paint job on my bike rite now so you will see me there one way or another!
