    Anything longer is going to have to wait until retirement.
    About four and 1/2 years to go.
    Now 3 years and 1 month to go.

    Yup... I'm counting.
    I don't need a compass to know which way the wind shines.

    Re: longest trip

    Longest for me was back in 2009 from Douglasville, GA to South Lake Tahoe, then Yosemite, Death Valley, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, seeing a frind in TX and back to GA. 24 days on the road, 19 days of camping and 6600 mile round trip! Currently planning the next excursion!

    Re: longest trip

    Last September,(2015), I managed to visit family and friends in Orlando, Tampa, and Ocala, Fla. and Atlanta area before heading to a Goldwing gathering in S. Carolina. Just a little shy of 3,000 miles in six travel days, but I was away from home for two weeks. Friends and family didn't like a tent in their yard so I was only under the stars for two nights...

    Re: longest trip

    I've been living the gypsy life for 6 months. Pulling my Time Out Deluxe with my 2016 Tri Glide Ultra. Been coast to coast twice, with side trips to Idaho, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Idaho, Illinois, Missouri, Florida, Georgia, Arkansas, Alabama.

    As what the Gypsy Lore Society calls a Roader (use roads to reach camping destinations), with no house or apartment, my road trip is never ending.

    In 2017 I will finally hit the last of the States (including Alaska) I have yet to hit.

    Ride, camp 14-30 days, repeat.

    Privateer, does that include Hawaii or are you bypassing the 50th state because you can't ride there? If you are flying to Hawaii and renting a bike, let me know when you will be on the islands and which island you will be on. My place is on Oahu, but I can get to neighboring islands easily. You can put your bike and trailer on ocean transport from San Diego or Seattle, but it takes a week for it to get to the islands. Probably would not work for you. I've done this both ways with one of my bikes. If I were just moto-camp visiting Hawaii, I'd definitely opt for the Big Island. The rest are too small for Moto-Camping.

    Aloha!

    I've been to Hawaii several times, and rented a small motorcycle on the big island.

    But yes, I'm a Roader, and since I can't ride there, I don't care about it

    Re: longest trip

    I've done several trips of 4-8 weeks, including four cross-country rides. After I retired the wife and I spent four months on a loop around the country. Started in Bakersfield CA, zig-zagged on a southern route to Florida then north to Maine, then back west on a more northerly route, again with several zigs and zags to visit friends and family. Hit 32 states and totaled just over 15,000 miles. Camped most of the time, stayed with friends and family several times, moteled it a few. My wife was riding her '05 Electraglide with a Hannigan sidecar, I started out on my 2000 Roadglide pulling an Aspen Classic camper, and when we got to Kentucky I had a sidecar put on at the Hannigan factory.

    A solo ride from Michigan to the west coast, about 1100 miles in two weeks of road time and a week of layovers.
    A clean dirt bike is a dirty shame...
