I think he is behind most of the riders, because he is stopping along the way to enjoy some of the sites and just enjoy his ride. He is taking some photos and seeing things that many of the guys are probably missing.

It's almost be a crime to ride though this area without stoppin once in a while to enjoy the country. Last time I was in that area I took over 1000 pix in 3 weeks

Location from his Spot just a bit ago... nice spot to stop and reflect on nature and machines...

Another google shot from 101, check out this adventure rider...




Can you tell how jealous I am that I am not along for this ride?

Still, it's a Henderson, and still it's a "way cool bike"! (Excelsior had purchased Henderson by the time that 4 cylinder was made, but still it was a Henderson.)
