  3. Nice list. We share some of the same “to-dos” and I am glad to happy to say that I have a couple of those on your list checked off already. I need to write myself up an official Motorcycle Bucket List.

  4. Goto the isle of mann for the TT, it seems to be on everyones list!

    Ride southeast asia on a motorcycle either by buying one there or getting one shipped over.

    Ride Baja

    Trip across the United States

    Those are my top 4, great idea Fuzz

  5. Fuzzy, I had to chuckle when I read your Blog yesterday. I am on vacation with my Hubby. I was killing what little bit of spare time we had before heading out for the day with our tour group by reading your blog. Why am I telling you this? CLICK HERE to see for yourself. 🙂

    I’ll have to think more on my bucket list. It’s time to head out again today!

    1. @Kathy WOW! That is AWESOME!!!!!!! I know you’re having a super-great time. As time allows, you have to share more pics on your blog so we can ride along with you. Stay safe & enjoy!

      I stayed at Bormio in 2000 but not on a bike. If you can, check out the Bagni Vecchi near by. I’ll be there, on the same bike no less – later this year. It looks so exciting!!!

  6. A few of mine in no particular order –

    • See a GP race at Mugello, preferably one with #46 in attendance.
    • Attempt and complete a 50cc (coast to coast of the US in under 50hrs)
    • Participate in the IronButt rally
    • Quit my job, sell most of my possessions and zig zag north & south America
    • Build my own bike
    • Ride the Nurburgring
    • Get a dirt bike and start riding in the woods (ever play roost wars with your friends? It’s a barrel of laughs!)
    • Do a few track days at Laguna Seca
    • Sign up for the 4am Bklyn street races out to Jones Beach (deathwish? Probably)
    • Get to the bottom of the questions I have in my head about ConFed motorcycles
    • Finding the inspiration / energy to keep on blogging and tweeting (I don’t know how some of you folks do it!)
    • On that note, connect with more motobloggers. Maybe start up some sort of network thing
    • Own a bike that isn’t so damn loud
    • Attempt a TwistyButt (1000 miles of twistys in under 24hrs)

    That’s all I got. For now.

  7. Hey guys, I was just part of a trip through Chile, Argentina and Boliva. It was great. Motorbiking through the desert at high altitudes its awesome. The Andes rock! I used these people: http://www.rent-motorcycle-chile.com . They treat me well and did everything for me. Better than just renting on your own. Check it out. JC.

  8. I need to make a list too. Just by reading your list I see we have quite a few in common and I’m jealous because you already crossed “Stelvio Pass”.
    I’m planning on going to the MotoGP in Indianapolis on August 28th, you are welcome to join us, I have my brother and a friend planning on going with me, it’s on your list.
    I’m also planning on going to Alaska in 2012 🙂

    1. I’m looking forward to seeing your list, George!

      The more I read about Alaska the more it pains me that it seems so out of reach for the time being. It just looks so amazingly beautiful there. Part of me would like to delay until my daughter is able to ride there. I would love to share the experience with her.

      Indy GP this year … hmmm….
