Trip totals 13 days
5649 miles
1365 miles of CDR
My brother in law was with me for most of the trip. When we got to the CDR he rode 40 miles and quit, what a wuss.
Never count on family for a wing man. I rode the CDR from Ovando MT to Hartsel CO. It was a beautiful ride and met some nice and interesting folks along the way. Many were envious of my ride espically the British man in the Great Basin of WY. He was walking from Canada to Mexico. The pictures are not Desert Dave quality, many were shot on the run, one handed. It took me five days to ride this portion of the CDR, with the first day of 110 miles, the other four days a little over 300 each. I only camped one night at Red Rock Lakes in MT. A nice couple gave me an elk sandwich for my tank bag that was great. The other nights I was wanting a shower and bed and cooked grub. In hindsight I would slow down and enjoy the ride more but I was by myself and I get tired of my own company too. The big girl was great on this trip. She eats the slab like candy, handled the gravel and baby heads just fine. I got in alittle mud in MT but it was tacky so not to bad. I dropped her once turning around in the road (doesn't everybody) but picked it right up ( not as easy as OldGit Ray, but easy enough for a little guy).Hope you enjoy! Click the pic it should load up
Fantastic! Makes me want to go do it again.

Here is my bike after the last modifications: rear moded, black painted subframe and aluminium mesh in the air intakes.





I like this sexy bottom

Thanks True Grip, as a former resident of the four states featured, your photo essay make me homesick for the west. Great shots and production.

I like the bag a lot. It is spacious and seems to be very stable.

Dating yourself 20valves, I guess we are all older guys to afford these bikes and trips and wives that put up with us.

Thanks spklbuk the pn-60 worked great as did the inreach. I never really needed to send a text with it but could have. The wife liked the comfort of seeing where I was. I like the comfort of having a SOS button to use if needed.I never own a GPS before so can't compare to Garmins but the instruction were pretty straight forward. I downloaded Cannonshots track and off I went
