I hate to see it go :(

So I'm looking at moving up to a Goldwing, I know sad

I love this bike and really don't want to let it go, but due to my future plans I'm working on, I'm gonna need something that can handle distance a bit more comfortable. My plan is if everything goes right, I will be quiting my job, buying and RV, moving back to Alabama to park my RV on a friends property. I will then proceed to start touring and performing fulltime, I've done 3 tours in the past, and have been trying to get to the point where I can just tour full-time for awhile. It's not a get rich idea, it's more about getting back to more simpler way of life for me. I am paying rent on a place just so I can keep all this stuff, and well I don't need all this stuff, so nomadic life it is.

Anyway, because I will be on the road months at a time, my idea is to do most of my touring on my bike, however the VN just isn't practical for this, so it's time for an upgrade.

Anyway if any of you are interested or know someone who might be, I'm linking to my ad on Craigslist. I don't expect an even trade but I'd like to get as close to it being so as I can.

I think you are making the right decision for your futer plans. Getting a larger bike will help out a lot. What size of GL are you looking for? BTW stick around Stone, keep us posted on your en-devours, you're one of the family, and just because you move on to bigger and better things doesn't mean you leave yur family behind right?

Hey Slim, yeah I really need something that I can feel ok with a tote tagging along so I can actually carry my merch to sale, it's how I make money at the shows afterall. I'm not sure, I'm guessing something 1000cc or higher. Keep your eyes out? Oh and yet for sure will still around. Who knows where I'll be or when I'll be passing through. It's really scary in a way to walk away from my job which pays well, but I know I have to do this because I'm not cut out to be part of the machine.

Oh yeah for sure Doc, you guys will totally know, who knows maybe whent the time comes, I can meet up with some in thie forum as I'm passing through, or ya'll can tag along part of the way between cities.

Anyway this will all not be put into motion until sometime in August after I get back from Nationals in Oakland, CA, so I got some time. Just trying to start getting things in order. My buddy right now is snowed in or shall I say iced in down in Bama, so they can't find out about their property lines just yet. The cool thing is there was a mobile home hookup already on the property, so they just need to make sure where I can park and still be on their land. they have 3 acres I think so shouldn't be a problem.

So What do you do?

Maybe I have missed something, but what is it that you do that you travel around? Should I be looking for you at art fairs or music or what?

Ride Safe.

If all goes according to plan, I'd be moving sometime after I get back from Nationals in August. Nothing in stone yet (pun intended)
