My opinion changes when the bike I am riding breaks down. Resets when the bike is back on the road. Every brand has some kind of bug.

Of course in my humble opinion MO has some of the best hidden gem riding roads.  I can still take people who think they are hard core riders and surprise them with roads they've never been on.

The one an only time I was visiting Missouri I had my car.  I also was a newish rider but I so wanted my bike as the roads that I was driving on were amazing.  Would love to ride around Missouri some time.

I talked to a Can Am mechanic at work and asked him about the low ratings.
He said the Rotax engines were bulletproof, but the rest of the bikes had some quality problems.
Electrics, switchgear, that type of thing.
He did say they're getting better.

As I will be riding to the rally in Cooperstown next September, can you suggest a good back roads route to York PA. I will be riding through South Boston VA on my way



I posted a pretty extensive list of road of some of the states you're going to pass through here: http://maxi-scoots.com/scoot/index.php?topic=9251.0

That said this would be my recommendation. If you just head north the best you can hope for is some lazy scenic roads till you get into PA and by then you are almost to your destination. Taking this route will put you on some challenging roads, breath taking scenery and in general miss most of the heavy traffic. Plan a solid 500+ mile day!

My proposed route:



Drive 480 miles, 9 h 35 min
South Boston, VA 24592 to York, Pennsylvania
 
South Boston
Virginia 24592

I've never seen a covered bridge in person, but it's something I always wanted to do.  Oregon has a couple covered bridges, but somehow, in 10 years, we never got there.  Considering how much time we spent riding in Oregon, it's a shame we didn't.  So I appreciate the covered bridge pic, Cathy.

I've heard good things about the Oculus VR. I may have to look into it.

Thank’s Eric.  Enjoyed the pics.  Hawaii along with Alaska are on my bucket list.  My father was stationed there (Army) for 3 1/2 years just after Pearl Harbor.  He and my Mom thought he was going to the front lines.  Luckily they never came back.
