The next morning Caleb "Cro" Owens took me to a creek and taught me to fly fish.



Photobucket

That night there was more shows. Here's a great video of Gilby warming up for his.



Later we went to see Slash play. It was so damn muddy, that our tires looked like this by the time we got backstage:



Slash and Gilby played an encore of "Paradise City".

That's the best pictures you came home with? Like they say on that NFL show "Come on Man" .

Deseret Rider, this is a perfect time for one of my favorite quotes: "There's never been a statue erected for a critic"

Even if that critic was John Madden!

The next day we shot our obligatory old-timey pictures in Deadwood.

As usual, I dressed as a woman. The guys like that.







Soon after we began to say our goodbyes for the ride home:



But before my report ends, there will be one last post about the shenanigans on the way home...

Chapter III: Heading home

After three days of adult silliness, we packed our things and started home. Riki, needing to leave at the crack of dawn, rode first on his own and got lost. (I'd meet up with him on my own sometime later).

We got stuck behind a huge accident on a two-lane road that shut both directions down for more than three hours. After standing around for a bit and talking with folks, I finally cajoled the others into using one of the farmer's roads in the fields. The guys grumbled until the summer sun got to be too much. Then they were happy to ride anywhere...







The hard mile on dirt got us hungry and we stopped in Lusk for lunch:



Just out of Lusk, Professor Clarke stopped us for one of his periodic history lessons. Not sure how much of this is bullshit, but he sounded convincing.



I eventually caught up with Riki somewhere near Utah.



We had lunch at a great place in Salt Lake Called Sage's Cafe, as evidenced by the giant sign in the picture below. Riki was grumpy, but he got his own ass lost.



From there we split up. I headed home...









And got to see my wife and boy Gage:

And just as a follow up...

I posted a new story that shares a humiliating moment, told to make my wife feel better when she had an "accident" while pregnant.

Nice!

Fun ride report. I like all the video instead of just pictures. Strange to see rock concert footage here too...

last word...

I'll say this, then leave this thread alone:

A new story - one about my friend Gilby Clarke from Guns n' Roses - will be posted in a few days. It's a slice-of-life piece with lots of backstory about his early days with the band.
