Every summer my cousins get a cabin in a state park in the NW corner of Pennsylvania. They have a neighbor who tows a trailer with all the stuff needed for the week, and we show up with our motorcycles loaded down with nothing.
The National Forest is motorcycle heaven, there are many places to go within a 150 mile radius. We have been doing this for 10 years now, and it never gets old.
When I do go 'touring' I take a pocket full of cash, a change of underwear, and my tooth brush.
Nothing ruins a motorcycle ride like 200 pounds of crap stuffed in your saddle bags and trunk.
I am spoiled from living in upstate NY. I can pull out of my driveway and ride in any direction for 1 to 8 hours, and have a great ride, and end up at a great destination, and stay overnight or be back home the same day. There are other parts of the world that I would like to ride thru on my MC, but I dont have to grunge it out for days at a time on the interstate, to get to a good place to ride.
