Yeah, having time constraints to work around is a drag, but it's my reality. There is a great deal to be said for just pointing the bike and watching the landscape change. I've got to hit Southern Utah and Northern Arizon again some time when it's dry.
I probably ought to do it with a lighter setup as well.
And frankly, after the mechanical issues I had early on I didn't want to find myself broken down (or injured) too far off the beaten path alone and that influenced my itinerary at bit. But I had a great time regardless! Glad you enjoyed the pictures!
