The 48 Continental States Tour Project...

Josh has inspired an idea...

I think it would be cool to start planning the perfect 48 state touring project.

There are two ways to attack this:

1. The most efficient route.
(could be very ugly... but quick)

Google Map

10,119 mi – about 6 days 17 hours

2. The most beautiful route.
(Could be a once in a lifetime ride that incorporates the most incredible roads the country has to offer. Definitely longer)

Google Map (Yet to be determined)

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• ••

We have members from all over the country who could contribute to each map. I'll take the google map link suggestions and keep the most current (BEST) map here in post #1 of this thread.

So if you'd like to offer a segment of either ride, just do it in google maps and post the link in this thread. I'll then add it to one of the master maps.

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• ••

This could potentially become the most grand Doofapalooza of them all in 2009 or 2010. I'd like it to happen before I die or need another build.

I thought we was going to ES in '09???


I would like to start out in Key west...



But I'd have to get there first...

So what do I have under my belt with the Harley...
CA, WA, OR, UT, AZ, NM, NV, ID, ND, SD, CO, MT, TX, OK, KS, MO, AR, WY...


Got some of the East coast back in the day on the German bike...

where do you have OK? Texarkana to Wichita Falls no, Wichita Falls to Amarillo no, at Amarillo you go straight west to NM... no OK.

and unless your making a detour up 160 from the north east corner of AZ that your not showing then your not getting near CO either. Wisconson and MIshigan? didn't bother glancing again.

You can hit OK, MO and AR in five minutes...


Ran across a three state corner marker on our ES 43 run last year...

my rough draft for a 48 state tour.... I may not be 'in' the ballpark, but I'm definatly standing somewhere near the front gate


seriously mike I think its a grand idea

maybe there will be several around the country that could make this ride, as the convoy aproaches your area, hook up, make your ride around the country, as those you joined in reach their starting point, you just continue on, picking up new and dropping finishing riders along the way

It could turn out to be "kind of a big thing" ya know

I like it, Les... a lot...

Doofs across the country could complete their portion of the 48 state tour...

Largest doof loop in history.

So lets continue making an efficiency route and a scenic route.

A doof from each area could contribute the perfect ride from their state... We connect it all into a circuit and we are off to the races...

Les, you got Texas...

Tom... you take Northern Cal....

I'll run it from Arizona to you... Hell... I can do AZ too unless someone else wants it...

Maybe KT or Chromer can take Colorado.... miracle mile is a must...


••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Members could hook up with the ride at any point and depart at any point... but the ride goes on with new members picking it up as it travels the US...

Some could do the whole thing or nobody has to... as long as we keep it going...

Looks like Michigan got screwed on this one...oh well, there ain't really anything worth seeing that far south in michigan...You've gotta get up around the 45th parallel before it starts to get interesting.
