Back home… ready for another roadtrip!!

September 14, 2010

We finished our 5,000 mile motorcycle trip on Friday evening in Albuquerque.  Loaded up the bikes and trailered back to Texarkana on Saturday.  It was an awesome, fantastic, beautiful, wonderful trip that I wouldn’t take a million bucks for.  Each trip we take just seems to get better and better.  Not sure we will be […]

Last day… not last blog

September 11, 2010

We all know by now that the ride is over.  While I’m certain that none of us were ready for the adventure to end…  we were ready to get back to family and friends. Can anyone remember just how many beautiful riding days we’ve had?  Be sure to include today in that number.    Most of […]

Great day, but……

September 9, 2010

Bryce Canyon is just gorgeous and I can’t think of a better way to start the day.  We entered the park and only stopped at a couple of the view points due to time constraints.  Still, it was a sight that few words can describe.  Maybe pictures will help. Then it was off to Zion […]

WHAT A WAY TO WIND DOWN…

September 9, 2010

Windy!  Windy!  Windy!  But still a beautiful day!  Our first stop after leaving Salt Lake City/Midvale would be (of course) a Harley shop.  Timpanogos Harley-Davidson.  Probably was a good thing that they weren’t open yet.  From the outside, this looked like the neatest shop ever.  The exterieor was done in old tin, rusty iron and […]

holy icicles batman!!!

September 7, 2010

This morning I had to wipe the frost off Mary’s seat before we loaded up.  Thought I would take a few minutes and try and wipe off some of the road grime that has been accumulating as well.  Good idea (in theory) but I was using a wet rag and it was freezing as fast as […]

Idaho and beyond…

September 6, 2010

Wow!  Cold again this morning with no temperature higher than 55o in sight today.  That’s ok, we were bundled up… layers and layers!  Left Omak with the sun blinding us.  At least we had clear weather.  The ride was great again and I know you don’t want me to keep telling you that. Highways 155 and […]

CANADA

September 6, 2010

Do you get tired of hearing about how much fun we are having… just how much we are enjoying the trip?  If not, maybe I’m not doing my job well enough. It was pretty chilly when we left Washington this morning.  Heading for Langley, BC and our Canadian Harley stop.  Of course we had to […]

details

September 5, 2010

Seems I always manage to leave out a couple of very important details of the days’ ride.  Of course, that’s exactly what I wake up thinking about! First, once we got on 101, it seemed that all of the gas stations/convenience stores didn’t have inside “facilities”.  Or, if they did, they weren’t sharing.  But they […]

Washington

September 5, 2010

Trying to make a little time early in the day so we have more time for the really neat sights!  So we left Kelso heading north on I-5 to somewhere around Olympia before we picked up 101 again.  The Olympic National Forest on our left and the “canal” on the right.  Still haven’t figured out […]

Rogue River

September 4, 2010

Phil and I spent some time talking with a really nice Canadian couple riding a Honda staying at the same motel as we were.   They gave us a few pointers about traveling north.  One of them was to avoid most of the Oregon coast due to the traffic.  So we adjusted our day’s plan to […]
