Monday in Yellowstone

After Doug's SPOT started moving North I waited untill I could figure out which way West he would turn, when he turned left I jumped on my bike and headed into Madison Jct. headed North and saw Doug just leaving Gibbon Falls, did a quick U turn and caught up to him going down the road at about 35 mph on the far right side. You could smell the bike, a nice faint aroma of burnt oil and leaded gas.



Caught up to him again at Firehole Canyon Drive



and introduced myself at another pullout on Fountain Flats. The old and the almost new in this image



Further down the road got the "salute"



and a wave



The bike was running fine the last I saw him. I went on to Old faithful but must have missed him there, it's a big place and it wasn't a mandatory stop.

Old Faithful

A bunch of other bikes went by in the "entourage" including number 52 on a trailer, a 1928 BMW R52



The number 33 1921 Harley of David Cava looked pretty serious



Some bikes seemed to be along for the ride without numbers



Randy Aron's 1914 Harley is almost a bicycle with the pedals and slim frame.



The 1913 Excesior I think is the oldest bike in the rally



a few more





Got Brakes?

#52 is a 1928 BMW R52 not a 1925 JAP.

Just a few more shots and I had to get back to work, as frustrating as it was figuring out where the route was, seeing the bikes roll by was worth it











that's it for now. Hope every one stays safe and keeps rolling under fair skies.

Easy to see how it got confused . The first # is the rank at the moment in the rally. Then comes the bike #.
Glad you got to see them and let Doug know someones watching.Thanks for the pics.

icebox, was nice to meet you today. sorry I didnt see you at the big spew.

I met several other guys from here today, as I said before, its always nice to meet you guys. sorry if Im not able to hang out much.

The bike is running great. I hope no more issues. the last 2 nites, all Ive done is drained & refilled the oil in the crankcase.

no wrenching.

what a nice break

you'd think Id have more time now to update my ride report, but I'm usually helping other guys with their bikes when I have extra time.

But I am uploading lotsa pics now, so maybe I can post some soon

Doug

Hi Icebox

I was standing with you when you took these pics. I sat on the HD just before you took the pics. I'll post some of mine soon. I went with the pack down to Jackson, stopping and talking to as many riders as possible. I talked to Doug a couple times too.
The scenery today in Yellowstone NP was not the wild animals. It was all the old metal shaped into very cool machines.
