Found your RR about 3 days ago, still reading it when I have time, but so far.....LUBBING IT! LOL
Good writing, but I which you would have taken a camera, there are some pictures I would have loved to see in bigger better detail. I'm planning a trip to the SouthWest in my R1 this year and in a couple years one to Alaska on my KLR. Thanks for sharing your experience with us!
