I've been riding for many years and try to take a trip of some sort every summer or fall. I ride a 1986 Suzuki Cavalcade 1400CC full dress. It is a great touring motorcycle that fits me well. I think this was Suzuki's attempt to compete with the Gold Wing.
Last fall I took a trip from Northern Indiana to upstate New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. It was a great trip and the bike performed perfectly.
