Several of the pictures got relinked due to photo bucket. I'll start from scratch and post picture I think are worth seeing. Starting with ride to Colorado Springs. This picture should represent Indiana Illinois Missouri Kansas and everywhere else in between Indianapolis and Colorado Springs.

Then in Colorado.. Here are some of us riding old stage road and other roads around Colorado Springs:


We are kind of a big deal and had a support vehicle.

The adventure FZ1. Yamaha never knew how capable this bike is..



The light in the background is an active mining plant.

Pictures on the way to Vegas. These are not in order. It took us 2 days to get to Vegas. I don't remember where we stopped over for the night. When we did stop at hotels we stayed at Holiday Inn Expresses. It was worth the bit extra due to the free breakfast in the morning and the fact they are generally clean and less risk of theft.

We had endless amounts of nothing and then come to this construction where they stopped traffic. The entire way up to and after this point was pretty much 65 mph of sweeping corners. Leaving Colorado Springs we took Highway 50. It is one of my favorite roads.
Highway 50:





Picture of Vegas. Not a lot of pictures here. The place we "gambled" our money did not allow photos.

We ate at the Hard Rock Cafe.
Drunk Homer

Stayed at the Treasure Island Hotel due by recommendation of some ADVer. The BMW next to us left his key in his ignition the entire time. When we left the next day his key was still in it!


Oh what the hell. We are all Adults here. Pictures of where Adam and I spent some money.



This one was good too.

We just Spent 1 night in Vegas (Spent to much damn money on the pictures above ^) and headed to Twenty Nine Palms.
This was pretty much the view the entire way. Desert upon desert.

We did stop in Kelso Depot.


After Kelso we Came across Roys. It was a good thing because we were low on gas.

Had a root beer

and spent the most on gas the entire trip

There was not shit in Twentynine Palms. We went there to visit a friend of ours who is a Marine out there. Stayed at the Holiday Inn. Its a new one and was a nice one. Only other thing out there besides the Marine base was


From Twentynine Palms we headed to Long Beach area. Unfortunately the only picture I have of this is


You see is what happened was.. On my gps west 153 looked like a curvy fun road. Well we got to it it turned to some gnarly dirt too much for the Adventure FZ1. I tired to slowing go up a hill and turn around but it stalled, my short ass couldn't touch, couldn't save it, and down I went.

*Due to forgetting my cable for my phone to get the photos off for this venture I will leave you all hanging until later in the week when I can upload some more pictures.*
