    Sorry to hear about the derailment! But at least you did get 2 good weeks of riding. That was a mighty fine ride report & appreciate you sharing. Hope you have a safe trip home! :thumb

    Great RR. Sorry it had to end like this but look at the bright side. You are both alive and well. Just remember the good times and let it roll from there. Sounds like and Epic 2 weeks even with the injury.. Wrists heal. I know you will be back out there soon.. Get Well quickly..

    So I found some pics from before we separated from Brian and Jill and thought I'd throw in some from the rest of our ride.

    Stopped here for lunch....they had no running water.

    So the facilities left something to be desired

    Cortez was right around the corner and that is where we left Brian and Jill.

    Brian and Jill went East, Lynn and I went North heading to Moab.

    Stayed then night in Moab. Had some decent BBQ at the blue pig but i had the best piece of pecan pie ever! They called it smoked pecan pie.

    Next stop was Arches. We spent a few hours cruising and walking around

    They marked the trails with these handy signs

    Ok I have hundreds more pics of Arches but we saw a lot more on our way home. So i will fast forward some we left and saw this dirt road on the map. It didnt show where it came out so of course we chose this as our short cut out of the park. We didnt see another person the entire 20 plus miles

    I think we qualify
    Yay

    Nice road a couple of sandy spots but not bad at all.
    [​IMG]

    Score

    Saw a few sets of these. I assume they are some sort of weather monitoring???

    We made it out of the park and headed to Capitol Reef National Park... Coming soon....

    Great ride report! A shame it concluded so soon. While telling my wife what happened to yours she said "Good for her for trying to save the bike!"
    Brian Jr. Bought my jeep, I can say that while signing the title over at your home last week it was still standing and nothing was on fire :thumb
