Two weeks is too much for me at this point. Five days of riding is about right for me. I see you have about as much luck in the sand as I do. You had a good excuse tho as loaded down as you were. I just suck in sand. At least you knew enough to bail before the bike hit the deck. Take care!
Thanks OLEARY! I appreciate the kind words. I have been keeping tabs on your RR too!

No, please don't whoop me! I've uploaded all the pics for the last installment and written the narrative, so all I have to do is get on to ADVrider! I am trying to get it done this weekend, but I have family here this weekend and I am on full time cooking duty!!!!!

Day 12: The get home hustle gets dirty

The last day on the bike. I grabbed a bite to eat and on my way back ran in to the Franks and their wives. They were doing some route planning, so I showed them some roads they might enjoy and advised about some roads that they probably shouldn’t be riding on Hardleys.


I was eager to get going to I broke away and started packing the bike. Soon, neighbor Frank was doing the same.




I made quick work of packing and headed out myself. My route was as straight a shot to northeast New Mexico as I could get.















Anyone know what this is?




The terrain keeps changing:














It was so terribly windy this day. The haze in the next several pictures is dust and sand and I was about to ride into it!:















I hadn’t spoken to my mother in a few days, so I called to tell her I was ok and that I was on my way back to my truck. While I was doing so, standing in the parking lot at a convenience store, I spied this tire graveyard and realized my own tires would soon see the same fate:


Just a little tear:



Nothing to break the wind:





















Elevation going up:














These fellas were singing a song and I was watering their tree:



These are nice pictures, but I remember thinking how much I was ready to be done with this day. I was really exhausted from the wind and I knew that by the time I got to my truck I would have ridden 400 miles:










Relieved, I finally made it to my buddy’s house. I loaded the bike, packed my riding gear, showered, was served a great dinner and went to bed. I was glad the riding was complete but a little sad that it was over and already thinking about the next trip!!!!!!


According to the odo I had ridden almost 3,000 miles in twelve days.



The drive home was uneventful. I took a few shots leaving NM:






Finally, I made it home to this:



And this:

Dude! I love fresh poultry.

Thanks for taking us all on a Supah trip. Wow, just one of those long straight roads out there seems like it would go clear across out little state.

Thanks Supahflid! I enjoyed your report. It is great to see another rider taking in the view at Point Sublime.

Ha! Yes, I really enjoyed your report and it was because of it that I decided to go forward with that plan!

I was very impressed with y'alls report; when my son was 8 we went on a road trip on a cruiser for a week, but I would never have even considered such a thing on a DS bike. Good job and thanks for your report!

Thanks Supah, for an excellent vicarious trip to somewhere I haven't been
in 50 years. It's time to go back. If I might add a postscript to the pueblo
you visited; a question was asked about the small doorways. As it was
explained to me, many moons ago while visiting some replica Iroquois Longhouses, the doorways were constructed low and narrow as a defensive
measure, forcing anyone entering to lower and expose their heads. I
would assume that the Anasazi originated the logic.

We need tracks!

That's a great explanation about the pueblo doors! I don't doubt that very well could have been the case.

I have tried to post tracks, but I haven't quite figured it out. The last time I sent a track, I just emailed it. I would be happy to email them to you if you pm your email!

Oh, and thanks for reading and posting!

Nice report.

And if you get a chance to ride w/ Pantah sometime, you should do it. He has a wealth of experience, and he's a pretty nice guy, too.

Thanks for the write up.
