Rides I think would be fun
US 50 to the east coast. Taking US 50 west doesn't interest me that much. We did half of it in 2004. Update: Did it on this trip.

Key West, FL.

Northern River Road route that could include the Michigan penisula.

Southern River Road route that could include the Natchez Trace Parkway.

USA 4 Corners site - riding the corners of the USA in 21 days...but I'd like to take longer than 21 days.

Themed rides - These are rides where there is a common theme for the ride. A popular one is to visit Civil War Battlefields. Another is state capitals. Other themes could be local towns like Bedford, Fayetteville, Eureka, Mitchell, or Silverville. Names are also popular. Mine is Buford Standley Wright. If I had unlimited funding and vacation time I could do them all.

Here is a semi-realistic ride that encompasses many things:

- US 50 east to the coast
- Washington D.C. sites
- the Chesapeake Bay bridge/tunnel
- many Civil War battlefields
- several themed places...names and cities
- Skyline Drive
- Blue Ridge Parkway
- Jack Daniels' distillery in Lynchburg, TN
- some of the Natchez Trace
- The Trace
- mostly US highways
- could easily accomodate other points of interest
