Just a couple of pics from my roadtrip.
I know some of you don't like the H/D thang but some do, so here it is.

Both me, and my buddy have Duc's (amongst other bikes) and both of us work in pre-hospital care. As a result, the track and the dirt is where it is at for our Duc's and dirt bikes.

Not to mention the fact that I would have gone through about five arses by now (4k later) just half-way into our trip.

Anyway, Here goes.
Yosemite Valley - and the smoke ...

His bike doesn't work so good, either. And no, it isn't a H/D ... Notice, that he is drinking a beer while bill works on the bike.

Put the girls on a plane back home and we were out of Jackson.

Here are a few pics from the past few days.

I have to say, Northern Yellowstone and East toward the Beartooth Pass is absolutely amazing.
I brought a book to read as I had time. It is Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. The author's/main character's interpretation of why one rides makes such sense. Basically the author says how one is one with the elements and meditates within that.
Well, in a nutshell, that is what this trip is like. I would like to be on a sportbike in many of the places I have passed through - getting there without being folded into a permenant pretzel is the problem. So, there we are, two guys on Harleys, and sadly, we each have Duc's left at home.
You just cant bring them all, can you ...
Actually, we have been talking alot about doing a 3th world trip on adventure bikes next. That way we can break down and have a real life or death experience in the middle of nowhere.

Anyway, here are some more pics.

Thunderstorm threatening - and anxious birds all a'flutter

the anxious birds, fluttering T me while we are having a beer. They are seemingly in a hurry to leave before the rain (something about hail) ...
Image

the narrow escape. Or so the girls thought. We were fine

This guy got a little excited with me and was showing off a bit

Image
Image

Bloody neighbors ...

Image
Image

Kewl stuff in Jellystone
Image

The Beartooth Pass

All I have to say, is it is epic. I will be ready to get back to work in September, but until then, Speeding and Foolishness will be the name of the game.

More when I have a signal again.



From the ride to Beartooth

SloMo,

That's a freakin' awesome ride! That's some great scenery and wildlife there. Surely an epic ride. I don't know about that ghetto tent and the metric cruiser but the rest looks pretty cool!

If I didn't have to work in the salt mines, that would have been a cool trip. I don't know about that Mexico/Central America thing though; don't they still kidnap gringos on adventure bikes? :grin:

It went something like this,

Hey Kev, can I ride your Harley for a bit?

Sure, just don't stick me on your bike for too long.

It was fun, and the best part is the effortless direction changes.
However, even with perfect roads, I was only wearing what you see (and it is a 65k bike) so I did not get too carried away. I did wheelie it past him tho :egrin: - Just twice more after he told me to chill out. He will get over it. Considering he rode my dirt bikes for years, he owes ...

He is a pretty good guy, if we had more time we could have gone for a longer ride on his bikes (he has an MV f4 as well - and 3 other harleys to boot).
Another time
