Only three weeks left until I hit the road for the Year of the Breakthrough Tour. This weekend I did a test ride with Hazel loaded up will all my tour bags. I have one dilemma not yet solved - whether to bring my laptop. I think I need to bring it but my Apple iBook is pretty heavy and I am not looking forward to adding this weight.
The tour is pretty well set, but I do have a few time slots that are not filled. Let me know if you have any ideas! They are:
- Dallas area - June 1st
- Mid-Atlantic - from Charlotte to DC - June 7-10th
- Chicago are - June 15th
- Salt Lake City area - June 25
Here's the latest map - click on it to pull it up in Google Maps and zoom in. Please note that the route is not actual - Google assumes highway driving, but I won't do that if I have time.
I'd love to meet up will people on an informal basis all along the way. A couple/few people in a coffee shop type thing. Let me know if you want to meet.
Here are a few of the public events scheduled (private/in-company events are not listed here) - I'd love to meet you! All of the events will be appropriate and beneficial for managers, entrepreneurs, trainers, HR pros, and anyone interested in generating breakthroughs and achieving goals.
This Saturday, May 5th, I will be at the West Seattle Barnes & Noble speaking at 11am.
Note: I know this chart looks kind of wonky, HTML is not my strong suit, if you know how to make it more readable, drop me an email. Thanks.

As I gather together all my information, I'd love to get a few bits of information regarding the towns along my route. Please take a look at the above map, and it if looks like I might be coming by your town (or one you know very well) please check out the questions below. Thanks!
Imagine you are me, riding through town on Hazel. I generally have some time, but not days, to enjoy the towns I pass through:
1. What sights should I NOT MISS seeing - what's extraordinary about this town?
2. Roads I definitely want to avoid
3. Best casual food, best coffee shop
4. Are there sections of the area I should avoid because they would not be safe for me or my bike?
5. Other interesting tidbits.
6. Does your state allow motorcyclists to drive in the HOV lanes?
