backroads UTAH 602 miles today.... too much fun and beauty, and the curves are insane.  Along with the monsoon style weather.

Moab jeep boys told me this road is hard packed and would be OK for my bike.  ADV stylin' a Connie14


Baby chipmunk size of a mouse kept trying to play when I wanted to take pics so I took her pic.


Took a pic as I had to pull over for rain gear.  I rode into that monster and the sheet rain was one thing but the winds about blew me over.




This Australian ADV guy imported a Yamaha Tennier to ride here in the southwest. He run the hell out of the Utah desert with his wife. This bike is set for USA in 2012. Damn it is a sweet ADV bike!






Note all the after market, and that route he is going is the route I came in on....it is EPIC TWISTIES

+1 on his school (and his friend, too)
When I was in school at The Univ of GA,  a guy came to visit. He got off the plane in Atlanta, then later got out of the car in over in Athens at the university, then he looked at all the girls on campus and said, "What'd they do? Kill all the ugly ones??"     :chugbeer:

Oh man that was hilarious!  I would have to agree with your friend.  I grew up in S. GA and had older friends who went to school there.  Went to a few parties in Athens as a senior in H.S. and yes......don't remember there being any ugly girls!

And Steve, thank you for the pics.  I really love it out West after being stationed at Hill AFB.  The pics are gorgeous!  Keep em' coming.

Thanks okx!

Rolled into Vegas today and threw dice all night. About break even, maybe down 50. 

The bike has been 3700 miles since Saturday, I'll give "it" a break and hang out in Vegas another night.

About throwing dice all night tonight....  of course I took a few pics.

And a stop by here is always suggested while in this town

Sun so bright I had to use a CPL polerizer just to see a pic in the middle of nowhere desert as I came in from Vegas to Cali. You know how I am about liking the natural scenes, out in the middle of nowhere desert I saw an intriguing sign that said "go here" so I did. Here is the sign:

So I did both. Day/Night one I rode 1100 miles from Tampa to Ft Smith, Arkansas only stopping for gas.  Took me 17 hours but thats 'cuz I did a lot of "off the freeway" stuff on my favorite back roads in GA and Northern Alabama.


Holy frack, that's 64 MPH average.
That's rollin' you freak.

You gunna make it to San Francisco?
