7143.5

September 14, 2014

Another fabulous trip! Over 7,000 miles of one big loop. 14 US states – some of them 2 or 3 times, Mexico and Canada. National parks and forests too numerous to count. 1 repair at the dealership in Twin Falls, ID and one roadside repair at the Idaho/Oregon border. Neither very serious. Two melted rain […]

Down for the count

September 9, 2014

We got beat up by the weather again today. First, leaving Fort Collins, the rain required that we suit up. That is never fun. Then 100 miles later, we were peeling off raingear because of the heat. HEAT. HEAT. HEAT. Ugh! That was the extent of the day until we reached Garden City, KS….yep one […]

South bound

September 8, 2014

Today we crossed two state lines (Wyoming and Colorado) even though only one was a new one. As we left Driggs, ID the sun was coming up and the commuter traffic into Jackson Hole was already moving. We fell into line and over the mountain we went. Once at the summit we could see the […]

where do I start

September 7, 2014

First of all, aside from the problems yesterday, it was probably the best riding day ever.  I even had to agree with Suzanne that the roads we were on yesterday topped any on our long trip last year!  We endured some awful road construction on the way into Red Lodge, MT (but the scenery was […]

Beartooth Pass

September 6, 2014

We are in Cody, WY for the night.  Had a few problems today that kinda has us flustered.  The most recent problem is another non-working A/C in our room.  Nothing worse than a bunch of hot old women!   Now that you know that, I’m going to leave you with a few nice pictures of […]

wooooooo!  I’m tired, full and ready to hit the bed.  I’m going to shut it down in about 20 minutes so wherever I am in this essay will end.  I’ll pick it back up tomorrow. First, a couple of humorous things before I forget them again.  We have to check Suzanne each morning before we […]

Brrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

September 4, 2014

This morning we had to wipe the frost from our bikes before we could think about hitting the road.   It was somewhere around 36 or 37 as we packed up and headed out.  Layered and bundled up, we could see the sun ahead as the morning mist/fog rose from the mountains.  Wa20 looked to […]

Back in the USA

September 3, 2014

I could hear the bikes beginning to leave the hotel at 3:00 this morning.  The end to a very enjoyable event.  I was awake at 4:30 and it was a bit early so I just laid in bed and wrote the blog that I should have written last night.  By 5:30 I was out of […]

Rain!

September 3, 2014

Wouldn’t you know that our “down” day in Canada was plagued with rain all day long and into the night. So the plans we had for doing a bit of riding were washed out! We had already dressed for a day of riding so we felt it was only appropriate to hang out a bit […]

We have arrived!!!

September 2, 2014

This day didn’t start like all the rest.  It had already been decided that our departure time would be a bit later.  So after a reallllllly long night’s sleep (I think Suzanne was out by 8:30), we hit the floor at 4:30 for a 5:30 departure.  But by the time we started out the door […]
