With an unlimited budget, where would you go?

I'd also pay Seven to rush me an Alta, fully kitted out. if the time wasn't right, any other monster hill climb would do. if no Alta, then I'd do it on the TCR (but I'd grab some Zipps from the LBS).

I'd create my own single track through Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia....wild forage for tropical fruits and coconuts....

Forget Europe, you'd be fighting for a lane with all the other losers with two weeks to ride.
Thailand's part of what I'd do.Leisure

I'd want to track through northern Thailand trails, also swing through Japan for some country roads, maybe Indonesia too. I've got plenty of family there but have never gotten to haul the bike(s) over.

Ever have fresh durian? Could i possibly dream of a fruit more sweet, delicious, sensual, and erotic? I want to live in Thailand, out in the wild with all the other free animals.

Probably have at some point or another, but wouldn't know which when we're switching between asian and English names and there are so damn many types. Asia probably has the best fruits on the planet (even if I don't ever think to attach sexual descriptions to them ;-)).

Thailand is a beautiful country all around, though. Bankok, Chiang Mai, etc., all offers so much culture. If I could speak Thai as well as I should I'd be visiting there much more often.
I would ride my bike to Vegas and put it all on one roll. (nm)onespeed

after a day of making travel arrangements and a day of flying, I've lost 14% of precious remaining riding time. I can always sightsee w/out the bike.

and see how far I could go before the two weeks were over. I live in Maryland, so I probably would head west. But if it were cold, I would head south first, and if it were hot, I would head north first.
I like to see that people wish to go to France :-)PeterRider

I think that mountains and landscapes in my country are the best...

But mountains in southern California are great too !
