    Been through the Monument Valley area on a big bike. Just recently became aware of Muley point but your pics were the first I've seen to make me realize I need to be there. Got a week off for good behavior next month, leaning towards Ut-awe . Thanks for posting.

    Yeah! :clap

    Another Big Dog Report.
    This one looks like a real winner.

    Now that I have a "little bike" I can start doing rides like this.
    Keep this inspiration coming.

    Some day I want to grow up and be just like you..

    In for more! :lurk

    Our riding season up in the frozen north has just about come to a close. Fortunately my little WRR finally has a warm place to sleep, in a heated garage no less!

    Man oh man, you can hardly beat another BD RR! Two of us plan on UTBDR next year (did COBDR this year) and this report will give us some good ideas for the loop. Thanks Mark!

    Scott, can't wait to see the ranch when you get 'er opened, and thanks for taking time to fill me in on the Tucson doin's...

    Reaching Valley of the Gods... it was awesome!

    [​IMG]

    The weather was perfect.. and we were having a blast.. easy riding but wonderful views...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It don't matter how many times you see photos from the same awesome places.. they are always good!

    [​IMG]

    We powered up the Moki Dugway.. headed to Muley Point..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We found the most perfect camp spot in the whole entire world.. right here.. not another person around! After setting up camp we had a nice hot meal and shared stories until it was time to call it a day!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This was a typical sight at camp... seems BigDog and Dingweed were setup and ready to eat before Bud & I.. but I think they've had some practice! They were a well oiled machine, partners in everything they did.. I don't know how they live apart really... :D It's a huge blessing to find a riding buddy you can get so close to and enjoy ever second of the day with no matter the situation. I bet if they both followed each other off a cliff they'd be "Wahooooo"'n all the way down! hahaha!

    [​IMG]

    Lot's of stories..and laughter that night..

    [​IMG]

    BigDog or Dingweed always had hot water ready for me..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The views were endless..

    [​IMG]

    but it was time to close our eyes.. and look forward to tomorrow.
