Skirting rural UT... This guy is proud of his rack.
Beautiful... isn't it? http://msthub.com/forum/images/smilies/wag.gif

Suicidal paraglider outside Provo, UT
Voted the least fun city in the nation. http://msthub.com/forum/images/smilies/nod.gif

Two sure ways to kill a Tiger-1050-induced adrenaline rush:
Road construction and traffic backups. http://msthub.com/forum/images/smilies/angry.gif

I've heard being a rancher is too much work. http://msthub.com/forum/images/smilies/cheesy.gif
The next couple photos are from the Mirror Lake Highway (UT route 150).

Getting off the beaten path...

... to Teapot Lake where I bonded with nature for a night @ 12K feet. http://msthub.com/forum/images/smilies/thumb.gif

Return to civilization.
I don't know what this place was about. Really. I don't. http://msthub.com/forum/images/smilies/lipsrsealed.gif

One morning I woke to Flower outside my door.
She was a good dog, but she dreweled and needed dental work.
Let's END CROSSBREEDING NOW, eh? http://msthub.com/forum/images/smilies/undecided.gif

http://kolobwebstudio.com/myimages/w...owers_face.jpg


Ahhhh... yes...
90+ miles of unrestricted twisties with no law enforcement in sight.
A few views between southern Wyoming and Price, UT, the best of which is along the west side of Flaming Gorge (north of Vernal)
and the Ashley National Forest.

Q. What's better than that?
A. More of it.

Needing a break, I discovered this cool abandoned outdoor theater...

http://kolobwebstudio.com/myimages/w..._theatre_2.jpg


... with excellent parking and seating.

http://kolobwebstudio.com/myimages/w..._theatre_3.jpg


No one there to play, but I swear I heard ghostly folk music...

http://kolobwebstudio.com/myimages/w..._theatre_4.jpg


Or maybe it was the sound of a windswept mountain top road calling?
Utah route 72. 50 mph. :rofl Yeah. Okay.
Zoom. zOom. ZoOM!

And finally the familiarity and warmth from sun beaten sandstone to remind me how it's nice to come home.

Shoud've packed a fishing pole.

Just got a 1050 Tiger... it has the side bags.... what do you think of the top case? Looks tall from what I've seen ... is it worth the money?

You caught me slacking. I wasn't expecting the feedback! I'll post back with a few google maps this evening.

I think the factory top case is too heavy for what if offers and not worth the $$$. I went with a Shad 40 - Half the weight and less than half the cost of a factory trunk. The Shad mounting plate requires a minor mod (drilling three holes in plastic and adding three bolts) to mount to the tail rack - easy to do. Any top case will sit high on the 1050... Tis the nature of the bike.

Mounting plate without the case:

Thanx for the pics. Whoa! The yellow Tiger really stands out. Ron

Sure is pretty out west, thanks.

BTW I think that pooch is a skunk-a-poo, latest designer dog fad.

You know I think you're right.
And I know there are bigger issues to chew on, but sometimes things just
jump out as belonging to the "that's-just-wrong" category. Let's hope the
dog doesn't know the difference.
