I met a father and son riding today. They were from Ft. Collins, CO about 1.5 hours from where I live. The son was riding a Ninja ZX9R of the same vintage as my dad's. We were stopped on the highway for construction south of Page. Dispersed and met again at the Glen Canyon Dam Visitor Center. I'm pretty sure that both of them will remember this trip for the rest of their lives. I know I will.
The ride from Page, Arizona to Kanab, Utah is not special. It's pretty if you've not seen red sandstone before but for me it was straight, with rough pavement and a good amount of wind. Kanab was an oasis. I stopped only long enough to refuel the Bird. Leaving Kanab the ride became a whole lot more fun!
