Whenever I see this thread pop up I gotta see what you've been up to.

As usual, not disappointed one bit.

thanks for tagging along


Tuesday I woke right before daylight, shower, piddle with bike.

Now robins up and showered we pack & walk next door for breakfast, by next door I mean next door our wall was all that seprated us from the restaurant.

robin had pancakes & eggs, trout & eggs for me it was really good.


I was putting bags on bike when I noticed backrest had com loose and spacer was missing. I had nut that would fit it, the bait shop had some nuts that would work for spacer, only they didn't have enough.

When over to the gude service talked to sweet girl but the guy who knew tools and stuff wasn't there yet so we finished loading & rode on out.

I forgot to mention 2 things. One at cliff dewlers the purple people eater had it's own room.



And the day before robin had picked up my mom a hummingbird statue from one of the grand canyon gift shops. She put it in the cargo net on the back. Some where on 89 when we were skimming across the humps it and a can of seafoam bailed off.

I'd tell ya the purple people eater can still hit triple digits, two up, loaded, but that would be illegeal

We started climbing heading for Jacobs lake. Now the night before looking at the map I thought we'd be riding into a valley to get to Jacobs lake.



But no its on top of a hill so we kept climbing and getting cooler. We met a pretty big group from Denmark that had shipped their bikes to sf ca. So far they'd been on the road 10 days. I'm not sure how long they were going to take to cross the country but when they're done they'll ship their bikes back from charlston sc.

Note big tags.




was able to get another couple of nuts to rig spacer for back rest, while we talked to Denmark guys



It's mid moring & we're about 40 miles from north rim.

Looked like they'd had a forest fire.





We were really looking forward to hikeing to cape royal, as luck would have it the road to the trail was closed for construction.

but the short trail to bright angel point had some rocks to climb.




more awesome views.

Store had a little western town build out back we walked around and looked at. On the way back robin played ball.





I was actually trying to get us to fedonia the night before, I'd heard the grand canyon hotel was nice and cheap. but we did to much site seeing, after all that's what we came for, the rides a bonus.




These were hunting cabins turned into rooms. Maybe next time.


I didn't check to see if the phone worked.


I thank the sign says it all.

thx was good to meet you to. glad u put that thing together.

I've been doing pretty good on getting out and about, but I may haveto slow down. Till I save up some money & get some honey does done.

Thought i'd throw that out there in case my wife reads this Don't tell her the truth now.



wednnesday morning we got up a little slower.

By the way after we checked in the night before, I said lets jump on the bike & check out the whole town.

She said we've been riding all day & now you want to ride around all the way around town.

She finally gave in, climbed back on the bike. She was so happy to find out we could see the whole town from where we were standing


After breakfast we rolled around the back of the hotel & cut across the the golf course & onto the road to zion.



See saw a buffalo heard, but the pictures weren't so good.


I don't know what to say, words can't describe & pictures don't do it justice.
