    Had so much fun playing guitars with this guy.
    Didn't know he was an adventure rider-------------thanks for letting me play along.

    Me and this guy have put some offroad miles on over the years.
    Me, Mark, Dingweeds did a big ride all around Idaho just a few weeks before this event.

    There were many inconsistencies in this guys story-------let me tell you.
    Says I owe him 3.2 million dollars.
    I think he was trying to pay for his new house he's building---"Rancho Costa Plenty".
    Coming from a guy who rode 900 miles with 2 flat tires in Baja---said it provided a new riding experience.

    The original "Adios Pantelones" riders.
    I wanted to shoot the moon--but my wife said she'd kill me.

    And then it was time to go home----------although it took us 2 weeks to meander across Colorado, Kansas and Missouri.

    I'm a lucky guy--------some people go thru life not realizing how good they got it.
    I know I'm a lucky guy.

    I've seen that look on my Mom's face before. BigDog (my Dad) was probably farting in public again. I captioned some photos from this thread to illustrate the moment.

    It was great meeting you two. The Cogitator was a great idea. So sorry to hear about loosing your Sadie. She looks like a real sweetheart. I lost my girl two years ago, and yes I still miss her.

    Ride safe,

    Ron (TaZ9)

    Hey Bob,
    I'm glad that Mark added all his great photos to the thread. I'm hoping others will add more. Riding the WR in snow already? No snow here in Loveland, but the winds are howling, bringing in this next front. I was so glad to have my WRR along on this trip to Utah as it handled every type of terrain that we encountered. Come spring we need to get together and do some exploring.

    Ride safe,

    TaZ9
