    Did you purchase anything special for this trip? Any new gear or equipment? Saw a tank bag...nice pics, some really neat landscapes. The caves looked pretty cool!

    So i was in keystone. Getting my gear together for the road i noticed a 6in by 6in oil spot.....i was able to make it no problems to Denver where upon checking it out my gear indicator switch had cracked and thats where my oil was leaking from. Yay. In Denver till Friday at least. The part is luckily in the states

    So Wyoming has been awesome. Pretty much made it through Wyoming on back dirt roads. Till i hit Yellowstone obviously. Damn the people suck at driving. Stopping in the middle of the road and getting out of cars to take a picture of a fucking dear. BIG FUCKING DEAL people. Shoot it..eat it..mount the head on your wall. Fuck lol. Boise Idaho is up to bat next. Not much there but family. Then from there ?????? We shall see. I've ran into a lot of adv guys while on the road. Been fun. Dont want it to end. Any one care to sponsor me lol. I want to keep rolling. Through the America's and then some. Need some backing. So lets go people. I accept all major credit cards and checks are accepted :)

    Ride hard and safe
