Awesome pictures! He got every aspect of the event,,, and the day!
Thanks for the link! I'll remember this event and cherish it for a long while!
I smiled and laughed 'til my face hurt,,AND!,,I actually got up and danced!

Being back "home" in the area really jerked my chain, and I felt a special 'connection' with the scene. Everything went along perfectly, and when Tony Smiley had EVERYONE up and dancing it was the pinnacle!
All those great folks are ADV family whether they know it or not!
I didn't take any pics with my camera, but I got a few with OMB's,,maybe he will share some.
Love you kids!,,and,,"Be kind to each other at least once a day." My Mom!

Laugh Along for the ride!

I am definitely IN and looking forward to your amazing journey!

Thank you both for sharing your special day with Angela and myself. We had a lot of fun and truly enjoyed meeting a bunch of great people.

Have fun and take lots of photos!

P.S. I thought Kurt's photos did a great job of capturing The Day! You can tell EVERYONE was having a great time by all of the smiles.

Hey!,,I was sittin' there,,all out of the way of the dancers,,minding my own and guarding the little bike,,,

when all of a sudden,,someone rolled back a big stack of tarps to my right,,and Lo and Behold!,,,,the rest is obvious!

I claim no foreknowledge of the location of that icy vessel,,my story,,and I'm sticking to it!

Here is a very rough version of our first week. But like I said, no schedule, and we don't have to stick to any plan.
https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Bend...!1b1!3e0?hl=en

Many will think we're nuts for hauling ass through the western states. But we live here, ride Oregon, Idaho, and Nevada whenever we want, and can take 2 weeks off every summer for Colorado and Utah.
East of the Rockies is harder to find time.
Once we hit Arkansas we'll slow the pace down a little bit. 300 miles a day average is very doable for the 2 of us, especially with the long summer days.

Man, Thursday morning can't come fast enough! Rolling out at first light.

Finishing up bike maintenance today. Fresh or repacked bearings, new chains and sprockets, tires, new spokes and a new front rim on the XR, and valve adjustments done!

Fixed Posum's Great Basin bag that was tearing at the straps(thanks Killurtv!) and I have the new ALTRIDER saddlebag that I can't wait to try.

Other than a solid test ride on each bike after they're serviced, no. We've both done multiple week trips before. The planning for this one is only slightly different. Bringing some extra tools that we don't normally bring and taping some seals, wheel bearings, and brake pads, inside the saddlebags. Extra oil filters and preoiled air filters in ziplock bags as well.
Posum will carry the tools for major repairs in her Great Basin, I'll carry all the maintenance and tire tools in the outer pouch of the Hemisphere bag where they're easily accessible.

I edited the first post and added links to the other regions we're posting in. As we enter regions past the 2 I added, I'll add links to them as well.

Yeah, thats what I meant. Always good to check after doing mechanical work.
