I do that every chance I get.

The wife and I hook up the trailer and head out to the grocery store to buy a couple of weeks groceries. I like telling the cashier when we are checking out that we are on a motorcycle and see their reaction...LOL....course I don't tell them about the trailer....LOL.

It's only the last approx. 5 years I started doing road trips. I do ride to work and chores for the most part. I do live in the suburbs (around 45 min.) from downtown Toronto and have no desire to be there. Much happier riding north.

Yes I get things at the shops on the bike. And put as many miles open road as posiable. Eric

Short trips, like to work or for small stuff, I take the Yamaha all the time. If I need a few things I'll take the Gold Wing. I also look for any excuse to ride even if it is just to the store and back. But I also try to slip in all day rides two or three times a month and wish I had more time for week or even two week trips. I got one ten day in the spring and have been planning on a week trip in the fall.

Short bursts here. I work mostly every other Saturday ( usually a half day ) so a can get in a short ride. Sunday is generally a free day for me. Mz. Vickie may or may not go depending on her Real Estate needs. But she doesn't grudge me going somewhere.

I ride every chance I get. My work is about 70 miles round trip, so I ride every day, unless its raining when I leave in the morning. I will even ride the bike if it is not raining in the morning, but is suppose to rain later in the day. I dont care if I get wet on the way home in the rain. Other then that, I ride every chance I get. Wife and I are leaving next weekend for a 3 day trip on the bike. The place we are staying is only about an hour and a half away, but we are planning on riding someplace each day.

I'm with BigDaddy. I ride most days - did today - to work each day. Yesterday, me and the Mrs. went for a huge breakfast of fat/cholesterol/triglycerdies and other vitamins :). Then we rode another 4 miles or so to the Atlantic and walked a bit on the boardwalk. Drove along the water and then back home. Went to Disney a couple of days last week and also did 800 miles to Savannah and back...ya every chance I get.

I ride EVERY chance I get. Tonight I no more than got off the bike when I realized we were "low" on Advil, so back on the bike I went! Of course I had to take the long way to the farthest store in town..

Since I live in the country with the nearest store about 15mi away, I jump on the bike whenever I don't need the truck. I try to get in an all day ride at least once a week. A 2-4 day trip once a month and a 4-6 week trip once a year. Had planned a trip to Winnepeg for this summer, but the wreak and my healing time put a stop to that. I am not up to riding much yet, my back is better but my neck is still pretty screwed up. The helmet gets very heavy after 30 min or so. I am using the lightest helmet I have right now. I am giving it another go at it tomorrow. Hope to do an all day ride, but will have quite a few more rest stops than normal.

Commute to work lots on the bike, whenever I don't need the pickup. Doesn't usually matter what the weather forecast is, I ride rain or shine. Like to get out on a longer ride as often as time permits though.
