Where have you ridden?

Where have you ridden? (In the USA & Canada anyway)
This was recently posted on TheGSResources forum...

You can add a small map of where you have ridden on your bike to your signature line. Be sure to keep it to the small size when you create it as a courtesy to others.

First go here is if you're in the states
http://www.epgsoft.com/VisitedStatesMap/index.html]US Map
or here if your a Canuck.
http://www.epgsoft.com/VisitedStatesMap/VisitedProvinces.html]Canada Map

Next, check the boxes of the states or provinces you have ridden in.

Next, choose the SMALL map size under the states boxes.
Skip any other steps except to "Create Map" button.

You will see your map with states colored in that you selected. RIGHT click your mouse on the map and select "Save Image As" from the pop-up box. Put it somewhere you can find it later.

Next, upload it Photobucket or where ever you keep photo's online.

You can edit your signature line using the proper link buttons,

Remember, just bikes, no cages please to keep it interesting.  :grin:

HA HA!  OK, here goes:

States I've *never* visited (like Paul, not counting airport layovers):


States I've ridden:


I wish they offered something other than those Partridge Family bus colors.  And no, I'm not gonna recolor it by hand.

Great idea!  A great trip planning tool too, since I'm sure most people here would be happy to share tips and experiences about the places they have ridden.

Random Rules!  Let's ride all the states in color order!   Blue > Green > Orange > Purple > Red > Yellow.  No trailering between states, you must sell the bike and buy another one.

I'm a little slanted to the Pacific NW, as I have only ridden in Northern California, Western Montana and Western Wyoming. I rented a bike in Arizona in Nov, so that helps...
