There are millions of miles of roads in America, but not all roads are created equal…there are roads and there are motorcycle roads.

Million Dollar Highway Motorcycle Trip (TX, AR, OK, NM, AZ, UT, CO 3346 Miles)
For the last few years I have taken a motorcycle trip in September. In the past, the trips have started with me meeting my friends LC (Larry Cooper my Air Force buddy) who lives in Bryant Alabama and LT (Larry Talley) who lives in Tunnel Hill, Georgia. We would meet in Hot Springs, AR. LC & LT would ride the “Trail of Tears” motorcycle ride which starts in Chattanooga, TN and it would end somewhere in Oklahoma. I would then ride the last leg of the “Trail of Tears” with them and the other 250 or so riders. This year the “Trail of Tears” ride ended in Tahlequah, OK. This year LC & LT rode ahead of the official ride to Hot Springs because of the heat. When riding in that large of a group it moves slower and is hotter.
I’ve known LT almost as long as LC. While LC and I were buddies in the Air Force LC always talked about LT. Our first motorcycle trip together was 32 years ago in July when I rode my Kawasaki KZ400 out to visit LC. LC (Kawasaki KZ900) & LT (Yamaha 750 I think) rode and met me half way and then we rode back to LC’s together. Below is a picture from that trip of LC & LT, at the motel, as we are getting ready to ride back to LC’s. My how things have changed but our enthusiasm for riding hasn’t.
Janet didn’t make this trip since the other wives were not able to make it and she didn’t want to be the only girl. I did miss my riding buddy.
Below are the posts from each day of our ride. Come follow along as we ride to enjoy the fun and beautiful scenery…
