I have been trying to get registered on Bike Forums web site and for some reason I can't get registered. Anyone know how to contact an administrater to get registered? Or perhaps someone who is allready registered could have an administator get in touch with me?

What has been your favorite route & why? I'm a nature lover, love the woods and some neat terrain. Working on my first long tour. I have been on Ragbri in IA 8 times and kind of board with it to some degree. Going to venture off to somewhere sooner or later. Would like to hear of some cool ideas.

I'm brand new to this forum so please be nice. I have been riding for about ten years, and have decided that I'm going to plan a trip. Maine to Florida I think. I would like your thoughts on riding the Eastern side of the country versas the Western side. I currently have a Trek 5000 & am looking for a bike more suitable for this kind of travel. I will be camping 70% of thetime and hotels the rest. Also I'm not familiar with the use of Panniers some does & dont's on these would be helpful as well. I usually don't like to buy the cheapest but with todays economy cost is def. a concern. Thanks for helping out a grean horn!!
