I was talking to my brother Squidley earlier today about the rides we've taken this year. This has been my best year of riding ever. I hope to emulate, or better it, next year. One can dream.
Just got back from Daytona ........but I was taking care of my parents and I drove across the Country in a rented Minivan full of family treasures. Now that is an adventure! Daytona roads are not exactly like Utah it seems to me - what do you think?

I took the North Route out of Hanksville in Utah too. Folks seem to think going south on 95 is better. Next time!

Try the Sierras next - I did that in the Spring on my VFR with a Vstrom bud. Here we go again, in a word FANTASTIC!!!!

Thanks again Dave.

owned and ridden by a couple of misfits.

Hi Dave,

you are really an hell of a guy, beautifull trip log.

By the way, scorch doesnt need a GPS, look at the flag on top of the speed triple. He always knows where he is. Its in is blood.

That was only an excuse to test drive the Uly.

(by the Way Scorch are you planing to come to Portugal this year?)

Bring Dave along perhaps we could ride together.


Don't ride like crazy cos when you're important people waits for you.

Translated to portuguese:
Já repararam que nas curvas os carros inclinam-se para o lado errado?

How many miles on the uly now and how has the long term reliability been?

Questions from a new Uly owner.

It's interesting to find this thread when I've just ridden over many of the same roads as you. You're right though, I wanted to stop every ten feet when I was in UT and Arizona - even raised on the west coast and used to "desert" like this, it's still breathtaking!

Great RR, always love lots of photos.

ETA: Holy crap, I hadn't realized this thread was so old! Pictures are still the same of what I saw just last week though, in a word GORGEOUS!!!

I saw your other threads riding the Wee and that, along with the fact that I love the motor (since I have the same design differently-tuned in my SV) were really pushing me in the direction of the Wee.

Unfortunately, events are playing against me at this point (see my thread in Face Plant) so even the SV is in question at this point.
