I'm 55 years old and have been riding since early teens. Got a motorcycle before I owned a car. My friends and I ride every Wednesday night, and every Sunday. We may ride 100 - 150 miles on a Wed. and 200 - 300 on Sundays. Mostly on the backroads of RI, MA, and CT. I also ride to work every day, ( weather permiting) 60 mile round trip. We also usually do one big trip in the spring. usually 2500 - 3500 miles in 8 days. I have a compass mounted on my dash and maps in the saddlebag. I plan my routes ahead of time and write the routes in sequence on long trips. regular day riding I use my compass and just do lefts and rights paying attention to my direction. Then just reverse directions and do the same going home. We find more great roads like this!!! My friends always make me lead.....it sucks sometimes when I just feel like following and listening to the tunes. But, the good part is when I lead, I ride where and how I like. If they follow fine, if not? ......they always follow!!!!!!
